Say G'Day Saturday Linky Party (82) and an invite to the Tuesday Tune Linky Party.

G'Day from Oz and welcome to this week's Say G'day Saturday Linky Party! Grab a tea, coffee or wine (depending on your timezone...it's 5 o'clock somewhere isn't it?) and get ready for a fun exchange of ideas, vision, creativity and knowledge.



As I am getting this post ready I am also getting ready for a week at the best beach in the world, Mooloolaba!




I can't wait to sit by the ocean each day, go for long walks, eat fresh seafood and most importantly, spend quality time with my beautiful family!

Delicious Jam and Coconut Slice

Hello from sunny Brisbane, Australia, sweet friends! Thank you so much for stopping by to say g'day. I'm so thrilled you are here as I am sharing a favourite recipe of mine for Foodie Friday. It is always a hit at tea parties, fetes as an after school snack or just something sweet to have with your afternoon cuppa.  Jam and Coconut Slice is an old-fashioned favourite with a cake-like pastry base, a layer of jam and a crispy coconut topping.

I've also been experimenting with iphoneography and made the recipe into an ebook. I used the apps Bookemon, Pic Lab and Insta Quote to make it.
