The Home Plate - Life and Lamb

G’Day USA

(Only in Australia) Permanent link

Every January, Aussies celebrate Australia Day, our version of July 4th, though it celebrates the anniversary of first European settlement on the continent, not our independence as a nation. It happens January 26th, and an explosion of fireworks, picnics and BBQs will ensue. One key difference – down under, we prefer lamb to American hot dogs. All are welcome to join in the celebration – in fact in many cities there will be “G’Day USA” festivities to mark the occasion. And you can always throw some Aussie Lamb on the grill to celebrate yourself! Try this recipe if you need some inspiration. Grilled Australian herb and wattle seed crusted lamb lollies with caramelized pumpkin

Be sure to upload your lamb photos to our Facebook page and tag our Pinterest page. We'd love to see your Australia Day moments.

‘Tis the Season…for Resolving to Eat Better

(Lifestyle and Travel Trends) Permanent link

Probably the most common New Year’s resolution around the globe is to have healthier habits and especially eat better in the New Year. Add to that a common desire to do better by the planet, and things may seem to get complicated. Never fear, dear reader! We at Aussie beef and lamb are here to help. Our grass-fed beef and pasture-fed lamb tick both boxes at once, as both are good for you and the environment. And did we mention that they’re delicious?
