ON THE MOVE


Lamb is on our national menu, in fact, roast spring lamb with mint sauce is a highlight. It is springtime and the spring equinox. (Allergic reaction to pollen is not unknown just now)
A Drover is one who drives livestock to market, usually over a long distance. (Macquarie Dictionary) Saltbush would be broad and remote sheep grazing country where the main vegetaion is saltbush which is drought resistant.

Love the Saltbush tucker picture!! I saw Maggie Beer visiting saltbush country in remote South Australia in the TV show, "The Cook and the Chef" (or vice versa) - on at 6.30pm on Channel 2!

I read your commentary and then had to say that I have never tasted lamb in my almost 73 years on earth. I don't know why. The supermarket meat counters don't even carry it. All there is would be pork and beef and chicken.

I hope you get to see what we did in Japan in 1953. Sendai-shi
