oh ok, um so what did you use under the foam, like a piece of cardboard, or just all foam? oh and crayola model magic right?

Hey Justinsixx,

We just balled up some newspaper in a "shoulder-ish" shape & then covered it in gladwrap so it didn't stick, the rest of it is just the Crayola Modle Magic rolled out & shaped..

Good luck!!

Thanks guys!!  We were totally stoked with the way it turned out..

Justinsixx..  I'm in Australia so may not be viable to do another one & post it over..  We used some crazy Crayola modeling foam stuff (3x packets), let it dry, sanded it, used some filler & the spray painted it..  Attached some strapping to it & away you go!!

Radmom, looking at the pic he wasn't quite ready to go, I missed the pics with full makeup..  Looked fantastic..

Anzac Biscuits are super Aussie, back in World War II (maybe even before) they were baked here (in Aus) & sent over to our troops..  Here's a whole collection so you can find one that suits you..  http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/collections/anzac+biscuits

Actually here's a link to Australia Day recipes, it's got loads of recipes that are very Australian like lamingtons, meat pies, pavlovas, damper & scones..  http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/collections/australia+day/1

Hope they help..

EDIT:  I've never heard of a didgeridoo as anything other that an instrument..

And here's a recipe for billy tea, a very Australian way of making tea, http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/6799/billy+tea

my favorite is a chocolately banana that you make in the fire.  I don't know what it's called. 

You take a banana and peel down one piece.  then you scoop some out and fill the space with peanut butter and chocolate chips.  put the banana back to gether, wrap it in foil and put it in the fire until it's nice and warm and melty.  These you have to eat with a spoon. 

We eat something similar to this, but we just cut a slit length ways down the inner curve of the banana & then just stuffed it with chocolate (like a block or at Easter time we just used cracked up Easter eggs) and then wrap it in foil, cook it in the coals for 5 - 10 mins depending on how hot the fire is..  Let cool for a minute or so when you take them out & then tear open the foil & dig in with a spoon..  Delicious!!

Might have to try the peanut butter thing next time..  Marshmallows are petty good int here too, best if you stuff them in before hte chocolate so there's not so much direct heat on them..

9  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Leeks instead?? on: January 14, 2009 07:13:10 PM
Leeks have an Oniony flavour, maybe you could try using those as replacement for onions in recipes??

Here's a few recipes with leeks and no tomotoes in them I've collected..

Sweet Potato & Red Lentil Soup
Serves: 4
Ready in 30 mins
   2 tsp olive oil
   1 leek, trimmed, sliced
   1 kg sweet potato, peeled, chopped
   1 cup red split lentils, washed
   2 litres salt-reduced vegetable or chicken stock
   1 Tbs finely chopped fresh oregano
   Freshly ground pepper
   Seed or wholegrain dinner rolls, warmed, to serve
   2 Tbs fat-free natural yoghurt
   Fresh sprigs oregano, to serve
Heat the oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the leek and cook for 5 minutes or until soft. Add the sweet potato, lentils and stock. Bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes or until the sweet potato is tender.

Place the sweet potato mixture in a food processor and process until smooth. Return to the saucepan and add the oregano. Season with the pepper. Stir over a low heat until heated through.

Serve with the warm rolls and top with yoghurt and a sprig of oregano.

Roasted Sweet Potato & Zucchini Risotto
Serves: 4
Ready in 65 mins
   800g orange sweet potato, peeled, cut into 2cm pieces
   Olive oil spray
   1.5L (6 cups) chicken stock
   125ml (1/2 cup) dry white wine
   30g butter
   1 leek, pale section only, washed, dried, thinly sliced
   2 garlic cloves, crushed
   440g (2 cups) arborio rice
   4 (about 450g) zucchini, coarsely grated
   70g (1 cup) shredded parmesan
   1 Tbs finely grated lemon rind
   Shredded parmesan, extra, to serve
Preheat oven to 200C. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper.

Place sweet potato on tray and spray with olive oil spray. Season with salt and pepper. Bake for 45 minutes or until tender.

Meanwhile, bring the stock and wine just to the boil in a large saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to low and hold at a gentle simmer.

Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the leek and garlic and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until soft. Add the rice and cook, stirring for 1 minute or until grains appear glassy.

Add a ladleful (about 125ml/ 1/2 cup) of stock mixture to the rice mixture and use a wooden spoon to stir until the liquid is absorbed. Continue to add the stock mixture, a ladleful at a time, stirring constantly and allowing the liquid to be absorbed before adding the next ladleful. Cook for 20 minutes or until rice is tender yet firm to the bite and risotto is creamy.

Add the zucchini and parmesan and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until zucchini is tender. Add the sweet potato and lemon rind and stir until just combined. Top with extra parmesan to serve.

Lamb Neck Chops with Vegetables

   1/2 cup plain flour
   2kg lamb neck chops

   3 small parsnips, peeled, core removed, cut into 2cm pieces
   2 cups chicken stock
   1/3 cup tarragon leaves, roughly chopped
   Mashed potato, to serve
Place flour in a shallow dish. Season with salt and pepper. Lightly coat chops in flour.

Heat oil in a large, deep frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook chops, in batches, for 3 minutes each side or until browned. Transfer to a plate, cover and set aside. Add leeks, carrots and parsnips to pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 4 minutes or until tender. Add stock and bring to the boil. Remove from heat.
