Lila, SM, I love this thread though because I'm always interested in what folks around the world are eating. Weetabix for e.g. like Diamondlil had for breakfast are certainly indigenous to the UK and Australia at least! Don't know about the rest of the world.

I just made a delicious chocolate chip snack cake for the kids when they get home from school. Aren't I a good mom? ;) And I'm supposed to be starting a diet today....

We have Weetabix here although it's not too common. I grew up eating it as my Mom always said it was healthier than shredded wheat.

I love this thread too as I like discovering new foods from different parts of the world. This year I'm going to make an English Christmas Pudding. There's a great recipe in my Nigella Feast's book!

Today's dinner was italian take away from a local restaurant, veal parm with a marinara sauce and linguini. To be honest, I wasn't impressed at all.

When I was in NZ, I found out about some things I didn't know about. Lamburger is really, really good. I am addicted to Tim-Tam cookies (and you can't get them here in the US! Wahhh!) And they are very serious about their chocolate.

I love shortbread -- I've found one of the best recipes -ever- for it, and it goes together in less than twenty minutes and ready to be baked within an hour. I've done variations with it with nuts, various spices and flavourings -- lemon does really well.

As you can see, food is a dangerous subject with me...

Mmmmm.... Tim Tams!

I would offer to send some but it is a bit harder to send food these days due to the changes to US Postal rules!
