On Australia Day (Tuesday), we made lamingtons. It was my first attempt at a sponge cake - let's just say it needs a lot of work, but it didn't seem to affect the lamingtons too much!
For those unfamiliar with the delicacy, you take a sponge cake, cut it into squares, layer with jam, roll in a chocolate mixture and then coat in coconut... Nice & messy :)
You can read more about lamingtons - including a link to the official lamington website (who knew??!) - and see the recipe we used at the BTN website.
On Wednesday we went with my family down to a park on Lake Macquarie to go fishing. The kids had a swim, and a fish, our parents fished and I sat and chatted with my sister and watched the local wildlife..
And Billy caught his first fish! And then his second! It was a very exciting day!! (even though they were both under-sized and had to be thrown back...)
