Well kids, it is true... a meat pie is delicious! Luckily we will be able to get these all over Australia and New Zealand, but we must watch it. I don't think this is on the weight watchers plan!
Today Scott showed us around Mermaid Beach and the surrounding beaches. We went to Surfer's Paradise and Burleigh Beach. We walked through Burleigh Head National Park, then went for lunch. FINALLY I get to try a meat pie. Now for those of you who don't know what a meat pie is, please google it. Shane has been talking about this since 2004. Apparently it is the most amazing quick snack ever, something you grab on the go (probably equivalent to fast food or a convenience store hot dog back home.) I am super stoked to try it today. It is basically a mini pot pie, but usually has minced meat (also know as ground beef or ground lamb to us in the US), steak, etc. Shane's favorite is minced and cheese and Scott is partial to the steak and cheese, but I had my eye on the pie that has a mashed potato top instead of dough.
