Grand Final Day is one of the most important days on the Australian Football League's calendar and no less in our household.
The balloons were blown, the streamers up, the food prepared, the cheer leader had her pom poms shaking, the black and white army was ready to do battle!
We arrived early before the game to prepare and take sustenance.
Of course a day at the football would not be the same without an obligatory meat pies and sauce, but we also slow roasted a piece of scotch fillet, sliced pink and stuffed into fresh bread rolls topped with mustard, horseradish or chilli relish and adorned with a rocket salad.
We were pumped! We shouted, we screamed, we clapped, we jumped for joy, we lost, we wept, we were physically drained!
We ate more food - pavlova dressed with kiwi and toasted coconut and a glass of champagne to drown our sorrows.
We packed up the decorations and look forward to following the Pies again Next Year!
Singing the song before the game!
Black and White Army
How come everyone congregates in the Kitchen
Here's to next year - cheers.
