Absolutely. Bloody SA thing
I wonder if they have the real thing over there... Chicken Parma!

It's a long time since my time working in Adelaide. The team hit the casino pretty hard most days, and although we were paid a travelling allowance, nobody ended up braking even. But every bloody night the crew would line up outside some freaking pie-cart to enjoy a floater on their way to Hindley St before returning to the hotel for about 3 hours sleep. I can hack a Balfours pastie, but I draw the line at pie floaters.

Pie floaters are great. You’ve got to try one.

If I ever go to SA I will, need to see what all the fuss is about. One of my cousins moved to Moonta years ago. He always asks me to come over but I’ve never got around to it.

Show us a real one (not a trumped up tourist styled floater).
Just like the one above. That’s just got mash and chutney on it.
I make my own, sometimes just pea soup, sometimes pea and ham. And a decent pie is a must. I’ve never actually bought one, the famous late nite food van closed down years and years ago. ( And I am from WA after all).

I hosted Christmas this year and cooked up a three course storm today.

First course: tabbouleh, Greek salad and woodfire roasted potatoes

Second course: traditional Napoli woodfire pizza

Third course: Nutella calzone with strawberries, bananas and a scoop of vanilla ice cream, topped with fudge sauce

A quiet one for us. Mrs H, Grandma H and I cooked up a nice little feast...

Kids went for Jam sandwiches!! I couldn't even sneak Cranberry on there! Served on a North plate though, so I let him off!

had my first hot pot experience yesterday at dragon hot pot!! Literally 10:30 working on my floor mucking around 2 girls (one I knew through a friend) asked me to go to hotpot and we finished at 11 so we rocked up around 11:20 and got in around 12, it’s so worth the wait!!

your friend group definitely influences what you eat as well, I also tried Korean army stew on Christmas Eve (Hojuman would be proud) with my friends it was elite but a bit too spicy.

Korean Army stew = Buday Jigay:
. Spam
. Sausage
. Tofu
. Kimchi
. Baked beans
. Noodles
. Can add cheese on the top at the end.

If cooked properly very yummy ( the spam usually puts people off though )

Dinner tonight was pizza made from the Christmas day left-overs.

Home made yeast dough, but I only did a single rise. It was pretty soft and there was no way to lift and flip it, but it stretched out nicely and was perfectly light. The cheese, cold meats, sun-dried tomato and olives from Christmas day topped it off beautifully (actually, I preferred the pizza to the charcuterie board myself).

Christmas pizza made from left-overs. Yum.

#1 son finished off the pav (three regular sized slices). There was a bit of whipped cream left over so I knocked up a chocolate ripple cake. Normally I don't eat cream (except as ice-cream) but this diabetic inducing delight is an exception (as is pav by the way).

As they were mentioned elsewhere by ferball here is a take on Falafel that is worth making as a special (veg) treat...

For those who like to tweak, why not take a look at this (similar) recipe, then pick and choose the bits that work best in your opinion...
