Only you, Spuddie... only you :-)))))

OK - I'm having a laugh about two things.
One is to "try this link" about more info on Australia Day - because links are sausages in this part of the country!
The other thing that strikes me funny is that this poster reminds me of the old Soviet posters during the Stalin days - make-any-sacrifice-for-the-good-of-your-country type of things, and with such similar postures!

Don't blame you. I'm a bit fussy over my snags :-) Do not like surprises!

We did though after his comment we weren't too sure if we should.

Did you eat the surprise bags? :-)

Have a short story about the middle offering in the picture. When we were in the dining car on a train in Australia many years ago our breakfast arrived with the above mentioned meat (?) on the plate. The man across the table - a true blue Aussie - identified them as surprise bags. :) Like that name better than sausages.

I'm sure it's not roo meat - there's a strip of fat along the edge which you don't get with roo. I had to smile at the mention of Skippy peanut butter. I first saw it in the US and it made me think of food brand names here like Koala rice - from Thailand. I wonder if foreign food manufacturers use Australian words in the hope consumers will think it's home grown :-)

I am relieved, Chrissie. The link under the copyright, above, (epress.anu.au-- etc) provides an essay about the Aussie govt pushing the consumption of Skippy (no, not peanut butter!) and about 3/4 of the way down includes this illustration. It does NOT say it is kangaroo meat, however.

Lamb chops, beef snags (sausages) and looks like marinated porterhouse or sirloin. I don't think it's roo although it is freely available in most supermarkets. Personally I chose not to eat roo although I have tried it. It is supposed to be better for our health but how many countries eat their national emblems, for heaven's sake! The shrimp is not visible as they didn't have a wide angle lens to capture it, mate :-) We're having an Australia Day brekkie in Burekup, a small town near home. We're spending the day at the market and craft show there.

We'll be a celebrating.... Thanks Oddio.... :) :)

I agree with the lamb chops & the sausages and it would have to be beef steak I think. Kangaroo steaks are available at the supermarkets but they don't seem to sell too much. I've tried it once & it's a very rich lean meat. Thanks oddio.

How fun, Oddio! Thanks! Will be fun to hear from those down under!

oddio

Yep! I'm sure if Chrissie or one of our other Jigidites from down under comes by, we might learn about the efforts to market kangaroo meat. Fairly recent drive by the govt, as I understand it. Supposed to be much healthier for you than beef.

Wonder why there are no shrimp in the picture! :>)

lyndee

Must be kangaroo.

chickiemama

roo?

oddio

You're likely right with the lamb chops guess. They do raise a lot of lamb. Not sure what the sausages are. But the dark red meat.... It's not beef.
:>)

chickiemama

Lamb chops, brats and sirloin?
