Hey all you people still in UK...The most amazing thing I discovered is that you can get a freshly cooked take away roast dinner (your choice of meat and veggies) for $5 from the Chip shop (yes I have had one or two!!!!)

The NZ cookbook bible is the Edmonds Cookbook. It lists absolutely everything, Anzac biscuits, lasagne, pavalova, etc etc. Been around for almost 100 years, almost as old as NZ itself!

I read lately that one (small) packet of crisps a day is the equivalent to drinking 4 litres of cooking oil a year Now I know why I've lost weight since I got here. Seriously. I hardly ever eat crisps now and it was quite common for me to eat 2 packs at a time before I came here. And I've dropped a dress size.

There's nothing wrong with craving something that you've been used to. It doesn't mean you're not adapting to your new home. This is the fourth country I've lived in and I miss things from all of the other three. I had a moment recently where I'd have given anything to be able to buy a M&S meal. Not for the taste of it - just the convenience. It doesn't have any deep hidden meaning though. Just that I couldn't be bothered cooking and didn't want a takeaway
I like the delisio ones as well except for the garlic and tzatziki ones(the light green coloured bag) they were too strong for me

I wish i could drop a dress size, too much fondness of crisps and alcohol, I actually dont eat crisps other than when I drink beer

when I first read this, I thought you had only just discovered the roast take aways, and thought how long has she been here, but then I realised you were telling the UK bods that you can get a roast in take away form

DOH!!!! its early

This is one of my favorite cake recipes from that book, it's so easy you can't go wrong ... I had my six year old make it the other day and it still was lovely

125g butter (softened)
3/4 cup sugar
2 iggs
2 cups mashed ripe bananas
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons hot milk
2 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder

cream butter and sugar, add iggs, add mashed banana, stir soda into hot milk and add to creamed mixture. Sift flour and baking powder and fold into mixture.
turn into cake tin and bake for about 50 mins at 180c

Yuummmy

No but the butter cake is pretty damn good too, I have a huge jar of sugar that I keep a few vanilla pods in to flavour it and I use that in the cakes for extra yumminess
Will try the chocolate cake next I think, Im having a baking day today

Mmmmm yummy! I used to make kick-arse banana bread when I lived in France. I used to add walnuts and rum too to spice it up a bit, they go beautifully together. I think I'll try that recipe, but I only have "aiggs" being in the US and all.
