I got super excited when I chose Australia as my next international cuisine. While in Portland for Vida Vegan Con, I got to see my Aussie friend, Rich. I hadn't seen him in close to 5 years. He was a teammate on my first poetry slam team waaaay back in '01. He was a jaded 28 year old then, and I was the 18 year old newb. Funny...now he's mellowed out a lot, and I'm the jaded one. Ha!
Anyway, while in Portland, he told me about how he feels more Texan than Australian now, because he lived in Texas most of the time he's been in the states. So, this one's for Rich. Though, he's totally never reading this thing.

The filling was pretty straightforward. TVP, onion, garlic, peas, and carrots. I made a gravy and added a small amount of soy sauce and marmite to make if "beefy".
Tomorrow, I've got a drunken rainbow headed your way. Hell to the yes.
