Yesterday I busted my arse to make a spectacular epicurean delight, and Min posted a comment asking: "Does it come in a tube?".
I had a whole range of emotional reactions to choose from, I could have been:
- Indignant that she made a joke about our National icon,
- Insulted that she would suggest I cheated,
- Amused at the funny line, or
- Amazed at her naivety
In the end I was disappointed that after a week of intense lessons in Australiana, Min still didn’t have a good grasp on our culture. This is Australia we’re talking about, of course it comes in a tube!
Or to be more precise, it comes in a big plastic egg, a small can, a small plastic tub, and an aerosol can. You can’t beat a can of Diary Whip for whipped cream with an elegant fluted design (the bulk of the cream was real whipped cream). BTW, that thing behind the Thickened Cream is the Kiwi Fruit.
Hey I didn’t say I used the recipe (in fact I just said it was from an ex-governor of Idaho), but it is a valid recipe if you want to make one yourselves and don’t have access to food items with a 45 year shelf life.
I took the picture intending to put it in the original post, but then decided against it hoping I could get away with making you guys think I’m a Kitchen Wizard. Oh well, I’m not too proud to fess up.
