Kangaroo on the Barbie

Today we drove out to Lilydale (about 30 minutes away) for our first Australian BBQ.  We went to the home of a couple that a contact from the hospital knows and thought we would like to meet. Two other couples also came over that were friends of theirs.  One of the couples had an adorable 7 or 8 month old baby boy.  They have a gorgeous place on 3.5 acres with multiple ponds, sheep, chickens, and even a playtpus in the pond which we didn't get to see because they are very shy.  We had shish kabobs, potato salad, green salad, and a choice of meat including lamb, chicken, hamburgers, hot dogs, and kangaroo!  Ben and I both tried the kangaroo and it was delicious!  It was like a tender beef steak with a very mild flavor and was marinated in a BBQ sauce.  It was a beautiful day and we were able to sit out on their deck and look out over their property while eating.  It was fun to be around Australians and we may get together with them next Saturday for Australia's version of the Super Bowl, the AFL (Aussie Rules Football) Grand Final if Ben doesn't have to work.
