Called my father-in-law (in Sydney) on Christmas Day and told him what we
had had for dinner. "That's very Australian!" he exclaimed. "That was the
whole point," I replied. :-) Anyhow, here's the menu with recipes and
comments (all recipes were taken from the Australian cookbook Manda gave
me): Prawn salad(*), Standing rib roast, Yorkshire pudding(*), Roast
potatoes and butternut squash, Stir fried broccoli and snow peas,
Pavlova(*). (ones marked * are in this cookbook).

Place the peeled prawns in a powl and pour over the lemon dressing. Cover
and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Cut the capsicum, carot and celery into fine shreds, then place into a bowl
of iced water. Before serving, drain the vegetables and the prawns (but
reserve dressing). Peel and slice the avocado and arrange with the fruit,
crispy vegetables and lettuce on a large platter or individual plates.
Drizzle over the lemon dressing and sprinkle with parsley. Accompany with
wholegrain bread.

Lemon Dressing: Remove a couple of paper then strips of lemon peel with a
potato peeler or sharp knife. Cut into fine strips. Crush the garlic and
put into a bowl, stir in the mustar, then add 1 tablespoon lemon juice and
the oil. Add a pinch of salt and pepper, mix well, and add the lemon peel.

This salad was a lot of work and I was the only one who seemed to
appreciate it. Kids didn't like the lemon dressing so I had to pull out the
bottled dressing from the fridge (sigh).
