New Year's Eve Dinner Down Under..

Dr Lloyd on my right and his wife Connie on the far right....

I was on holiday in Perth last week, my sisters and I were invited to dinner on New Year's eve by our gracious hosts Connie and Lloyd at their lovely home. We had a great time savouring her delicious roasts and western spread from appetizers to desserts plus all the fun in popping crackers to funny jokes, paper hats, and wines to welcome the New Year in a home away from home. Thank you so much, Connie and Lloyd, for giving us a memorable time together.

Deepfried prawns and beef balls for appetizers.........


Roasted pork..........


Crispy and crackling roasted skin, sinful but heavenly indulgence



Roasted chicken rolls with nuts......


Juicy and tender roast chicken.............


Sweet corn and cauliflowers..............


My plate of roasted pumpkin, potato and garlic bread....


Popping crackers with Georgina...............


Busy eating..............

Everyone enjoyed the food & had fun there! So it's the culture to wear that "paper crown" during the New Year Eve? I've been seeing this while blog hopping.

Hi Jasmine, love the photos here and I must say you look simply great.
By the way, have you lost your age? I repeat, not 'weight', AGE. Ha ha.
For a moment I couldn't recognize you.

Jasmine, you're looking swell....love the last photo, you look beautiful.
How come I missed you when I was handing out my resume? Ha ha.
You stay easy, stay young and keep a song in your heart, Lee.
