Hugh Jackman teaches Jimmy Fallon the correct way to eat Vegemite.


Talk about community service.  For a long time I have watched how people from across the waters have attempted to eat Vegemite, as though it is Nutella, and spreading it on way too thick.  Yes, there is a certain way to eat vegemite and not gag.  It’s all about how you eat it.  Hot buttered toast and then a light smear.  No big knife full.  Nice to see Hugh leading the way in Vegemite eating etiquette.

Aussie Cooking – Easy Vegetable and Bacon Slice.

6 eggs
1 large zucchini grated
1 carrot grated
1/2 onion finely diced
1/2 cup grated cheese
300grams thinly sliced bacon
Pinch of nutmeg and baking powder
Salt and pepper to taste

Beat the eggs in a large bowl then add nutmeg, salt, pepper and baking powder. Then softly stir all ingredients together. Place in lined tin and bake for 25mins at 180 degrees.  If – like most I know – you have problems with onions & lactose (FODMAPS) etc. substitute onion with lots of chopped chives. And cheese with grated lactose free cheese !! Yummy 🙂

Things I love – Peanut butter Tim Tams.


Any die hard Australian knows the joy of eating a Tim Tam biscuit.  One of the few pleasures in life, if you ask me.  But of late, Arnotts has come out with some new flavours to our old favorite, and I can’t tell you how much I love the Peanut butter flavored ones.  I happened to be buying petrol at Caltex, when I was going up to pay for my fuel, and saw this packet of Peanut butter Tim tams for only 50 cents.  Normally they are up to $4.00 a packet.  I’d not tried them before, but as a fan of PB, I thought I could spend the 50 cents and find out.


YUM!  That fine layer of peanut butter sauce mixed with filling in the middle made them sweet and reminded me of my mother’s chocolate peanut spider clusters.  (Something I miss terribly.)   I’ve since bought more with my weekly shopping – on special of course, and enjoyed them with my coffee.  One thing that we Aussies love to do is the Tim tam bomb.  To give you a good idea of how we eat them for extra oomph, check out the video below.
