First off, let me answer this question:
No I don’t. Also, I don’t remember my Gran looking like this. My Gran did not make homemade bread or luscious lamingtons or perfect pies. She made me porridge for breakfast, and she boiled three vege and cooked some meat for dinner. I don’t think I ever had pasta or rice at her place, and we definitely never had noodles. She made huge vats of bright orange cordial and put them in one litre bottles, and she preserved or turned into jam the millions of plums that came off her plum tree every year. In all these cases the magic ingredient that made it all taste so good was lots of sugar.
Ok, so now that we’ve answered that question, let’s see what’s on offer here.
$9.00? Sorry, I got the punctuation wrong, I mean $9.00! Measuring spoons! New Zealand recipes!
Ok, I’m intrigued.
- Home-made bread
- Colonial Beef
- Lamb Pie
- Frozen Plum Pudding
I never knew that we invented homemade bread in New Zealand. I think we should be more famous for this because bread is pretty popular. Lamingtons. Certainly yummy, but from Australia. Colonial Beef? Might be some kind of curry dish. Again, I am surprised we invented beef curry. I thought it would have been the British in India who decided to stop letting all those sacred animals go to waste and chopped a few up with some turmeric. Yum.
Also, we invented baby sheep (we call them “lambs”).
Lamingtons? Check. Chicken salad in a lettuce basket? Questionable. Exploding fruit volcano cake? Fricken awesome.
