Picture of the Day.....
Interesting about Australia's seasons......... so opposite of ours!
Australia’s location is distant from other continents so there is a whole separate world. This small continent is surprisingly rich in natural and climatic features.
There are stately deserts, beautiful rain forests and mountains with snow caps. Not even mentioning variety of flora and fauna. Main feature of Australian climate is in beginning of summer in December and start of winter in June. In fact, this is a distinguishing feature of all countries located in Southern Hemisphere.
Spring in Australia lasts from September to November and includes features of other three seasons. For example, one can spend time on one of the inland beaches or travel to Kangaroo islands and watch blooms and blossoms. Spring weather is similar to autumn one; it is not very hot but yet not so cold. Residents are usually of spring onset because the green continent begins to restore its bright colors bit by bit.
Cheesy Chicken Bake....
This twist on traditional baked macaroni and cheese gets its main dish appeal from the addition of chopped cooked rotisserie chicken. It's a great all-in-one weeknight meal.
- 1 cup uncooked elbow macaroni
- 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 green bell pepper, chopped
- 1 (10-3/4-ounce) can cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
- 1 (2-ounce) jar diced pimiento, undrained
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 cups chopped cooked rotisserie chicken
- 1/2 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
