It was the big day of the Melbourne Cup, so friends decided to hold a cup day party in honor of the big occasion. A great reason to have a BBQ picnic in the middle of the week!
Emma prepared a Kiwi delicacy - White bait patties as an entree followed by lamp chops and sausages.
This is a true Kiwi first for me so I thought I should share the experience.
The White Bait patties consist of little white baits (fish) cooked like an omelet seasoned with salt and pepper. They were delish, but couldn't help but take pity on the little fish that was looking back at me while I was eating. We all had a bit of a laugh over it.
L to R - Emma, Kayla, myself and Sally
Cardi: Staple from Depeche Mode
Capris: GH Bass
Heels: Banana Republic
Since I was in my 30-for-30 I pulled the girls in with me for a shot. They were very good sports! We were not dressed to the nines as they do here in NZ for the races, but we had fun anyway.
PS - Thomas' horse won the cup!
