Downunder ..... they WORKED hard for the family.

Australia is known as the country that grew up on the sheep's back. Many of our ancestors worked in rural locations in the Australian outback. The men worked outdoors whilst the women maintained the house and cooked three hearty meals a day for those hardworking men.

Wikipedia has a good definition and photo of sausage rolls http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sausage_roll. They are a very popular party food in Australia.
