Queen passes along kangaroo stew

Queen Elizabeth II doesn't appear to have a taste for "roo stew," as it's known Down Under -- "roo" as in "kangaroo."

The queen was offered the dish when she visited an Aboriginal school in Perth on Thursday during her visit to Western Australia.

It was presented to her while she watched a home economics class in action. A 16-year-old student, Zenneth Cox, made the special dish.

"Early Show" co-anchor Jeff Glor reported the monarch didn't actually take a bite of the concoction -- she handed it off to an aide.

The queen was accompanied to the Clontarf Aboriginal College by the premier of the State of Western Australia, Colin Barnett. They watched the Wadumbah dance troupe perform to didgeridoo music.

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip are in Australia for a 10-day visit, which includes the cities of Canberra, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth.
