For Monday 9th April, the Commonwealth Games was in progress up on the Gold Coast, so it seemed like a suitable theme to celebrate Australia and the other countries of the Commonwealth. Jacinta hosted, and cooked the savoury dishes, with Andrew providing the sweet ones.


Jacinta got us in the green and gold mood with a pineapple mojito.


We began the meal with a not-so-traditional green and gold damper.



Jacinta continued the theme with a vegemite meat pie served with green and gold vegetables, specifically peas with pancetta and bocconcini, and roast carrots, pumpkin and parsnip.



To finish, Andrew served a matcha roll cake with blueberries (the colours green, white, and blue for the Sierra Leone flag) and a Maltese almond and chocolate pie made with Maltese rusks (with white and red being the colours of the Maltese flag).
