You ate it with a spoon , you just cut off a piece of the spud with the edge of the spoon and then you had a spoonful of broth with a bit of potato in it , delicious !

ok   ..     so what happens to the skin     ..     doesn't the skin keep the potato from breaking up     ..

it must be tricky getting similar sized ones to boil    ..     
love me          love my gelding

I was over in Australia in October. We drove up to Surfers Paradise and stayed overnight in different towns  on the way up and down. A beautiful Country. Great food as well. 1698 miles  we travelled (a couple of detours on the way)from Sydney to Surfers Paradise. I was asking my friends to check how big Northern Ireland was...97 miles I honestly couldn't believe it. I was a little taken aback. It was something I hadn't really thought about. We moan if we have to drive to Dublin lol...I was back home before those awful fires hit. It was really sad to see on TV. Hope you Aussies are all ok.

I was able to negotiate the airports and was very pleased with myself. Not bad for a old girl.

Good on you McNamee  for sharing your travel experiences in Australia.

I have been in Australia since 1964 and have travelled/served throughout Australia and parts of South East Asia.

We have travelled many times by road from Victoria to Far North Queensland mainly by the Pacific Highway which is the more scenic route whcih provided the opportunity to visit the many lovely coastal towns along the way. We have also travelled the Newell Highway but it is more of a direct route used mainly by the truckies and sometimes without warning you can come across a cattle drive along the so called Long Paddock.

Our last trip was from Victoria to Queensland via the Pacific Highway and we enjoyed visiting several coastal towns along the way. At night we would stay at a motel and visit the local sports or services club for a meal which is always good value.

The sports or services clubs are always good value for meals and entertainment and the bigger the town the bigger the clubs.

Some of our favourites are the Twin Towers Services Club, the Tweed Heads Bowls Club.

We have travelling through these towns just for interests sake I take a photo of the local police station and here is a couple for those who are interested,

I had a look at his prices on the gourmet sausages and they a dearer than I expected, I am comparing to NI prices.

I've never bought nor never will buy sausages in NI and so the price comparison is neither here nor there.

In any case any snags we buy are for the BBQ and so we just buy from our local supermarket.

Cheers.

Well there is a fair difference there, Supermarket BBQ $5/Kg and Rob's $22/Kg. To be honest I would rather pay the extra even to throw on the barbie  :)
