Australia Day Goodies

With Australia Day celebrations just around the corner, I've decided to put my baking cap on and cook up a storm. Grab a deal on our fab chunky beef Aussie meat pie and our buttery lamington cupcakes all weekend at my Simmone Logue Double Bay and Cammeray stores.

Get your buddies together and fill the esky with beers and indulge in these quintessentially Aussie treats.

Lamington cupcakes - $3.90 each or $19.50 for 6.

Chunky beef cocktail pies - $19.90 for a pack of 12.

Business is as usual all weekend at both stores, although we will be closed on Monday........ we're going fishing!!

Happy Australia Day!

Grilled Rock Lobster with Butter, Basil and Lemon Zest

Only yesterday, towards the end of my holiday at the beach, with a hankering for fresh shellfish, I rigged up my cray pot and lugged it up the rocky beach to my special spot.

With a lucky feeling in my belly I hung an old salmon head into the cage and wired a few chittins in there for good measure and lowered it down into the hole in the rocks which has rarely let me down.

A few little friends came for the adventure so with hand on heart they repeated after me and pledged not to tell, not even their bestest bestie, where the spot is....

Last night we ate like kings and queens as the average size of the beauties excitedly pulled from the ocean was 350g.

We popped them into the frezer for a while (the most humane way of dispatching them) before splitting them down the center, dotting with butter, basil and lemon zest and grilling them to perfection for just under 10mins.

Doesn't get any better than that!

Happy fishing,
