Election Day in Australia means one thing – democracy sausage. Voting and sausage sizzles are now permanently linked in the Australian imaginary.
The excellent snag votes map is a crowd sourced map of which booths have sausage sizzles, cake stalls or other delights. Choose wisely.
This year my booth went above and beyond with a wonderful fete. The booth is Darlinghurst Public School – a lovely inner city public school which clearly has a very active group of parents.
Polling goes from 8am to 6pm (voting is compulsory).
The most important part; the sausage sizzle or in this case the haloumi & egg sizzle.
Mmm, delicious democracy.
The cake stand was very impressive with an enormous variety of cakes, cookies & more – all home made.
I had these wonderful afghan cookies for morning tea.
Gorgeous Victoria sponge, very tempting.
Really cute murals above the bubblers, wish my primary school was like this!
There were also pottery stalls, clothing, paper craft and this amazing flower stall with ‘tussie mussies’ – mixed posys which have special meanings & are intended to be given as gifts. Lovely.
