The many faces of Aussie hubby

Aussie hubby’s look alikes

Aussie hubby has many looks.

When he is fully content, “Mount Beerwah” Aussie hubby often makes an appearance  – big wide smile and eyes closed.  Named after the location of its first occurrence.

It seems his expression has not gone unnoticed in the animal kingdom!

Not sure what Mr. Fox is up to but Mac definitely takes after his (human) Dad…

Do your pets resemble your looks?

All things German

Recently Aussie hubby bought himself a new toy and went on an Oz-adventure (literally – his nickname is Oz) from Sydney to Brisbane.

Having always being sceptical of motorbikes, it took me a little while to warm up to this idea.

What sold it was the fact that it was another addition to our German ‘collection’ that currently consists of:

  • German wife
  • 2 German dachshunds, one with a beautiful old German name
  • a BMW motorbike
  • an old German dictionary which was a gift
  • European pillowcases (guess they are German to some degree)
  • Sausages in our fridge (they might as well be added in seeing that they are an almost permanent fixture)

What German things do you own?

Sausage stir fry (GF)

This is the German take on a traditional Asian dish.  I made this dish up when I had nothing else in the fridge one night.  Aussie hubby really liked it and it has become one of our regular meals now.  This meal is also gluten free.
