RFDS Frequent Flyer!

Well, here we are again my friends. Back at the Hyatt Regency Isa Base Hospital. Oh how we seem to love this resort. Like last time (remember when Clancy was sick – you can read about that trip here) our private jet (aka: RFDS plane) came to get us. Captain Darryl was flying and…

Visiting the dentist in the Outback

Yesterday I was up and at it early so I could get Clancy and Harry to town for a dental check up. Now, I use the term “town” loosely because it was Camooweal where there is just basically a pub, roadhouse

Outback tales from my neck of the woods

Sick kids. It is the pits isn’t it, so scary. I mean, I get worried (and totally freak out) when a jackaroo comes to me with a cut on his eyebrow that needs stitches (may or may not have happened last week) so can you imagine how much it worries me when one of my…

Outback sleepover

Well it is the school holidays which means time for another sleepover. Harry has been hatching a plan with his little friend next door for about 2 weeks. They had it all sorted. Now you know that when I say neighbour it isn’t as simple as walking out the front door and 20 metres across…

Life on an Outback Cattle station

I was thinking the other day what a very unique way of life we lead up here on an outback cattle station. You see, back in 2001, when I first came up to work in the NT I used to think everyone would love this sort of lifestyle. Why on earth wouldn’t you want to…

Miss chardys guide to station cooking part-6-dinner-20-beef-dishes

Now onto the main event. Dinner. The crew have been hard at it all day long and now they are ready for a good hearty meal. Remember, they are growing boys and girls and need feeding well. Beware, the skinniest little Jackaroo may well be your biggest eater. Not sure what the hell I am…

The coolest job in the world!

Miss Chardy’s Guide to Station Cooking – Part 5 – Lunch

Lunch is a pretty easy gig on a station, especially if most of the crew are out and about working away from the homestead. If they are all in then it is a pretty busy day. That is where leftovers come in very handy and such a good way to use them up. If…

Cooking with Chards Pt3

I think a savoury smoko would nearly be one of my favourite meals to make. When the crew are in full swing, working their backsides off, they love nothing more than coming in for a delicious, cooked, morning smoko. Now, i’m not sure about you, but here at Chardy Central we don’t have an official…
