As you know, I haven’t been around here during the second half of the year. The family has been a bit busy chasing cattle in the remote Pilbara region of W.A.
The checklist for today, ANZAC DAY, April 25, 2015:
Dawn Service where hundreds of locals gathered. Tick.
Tears while the last post was played. Tick.
Stories shared with the children over breakfast of H's grandfather - a tunneller - killed on the Western Front in WW1, and his father - a Navy man - who fought in WW2. Tick.
Stories shared with the children over breakfast of my Great Uncle, killed whilst a POW on the Burma railway. Tick.
Anzac Biscuits in the oven. Tick.
A while ago, a cry went up on Facebook in a number of places for some ideas for children’s lunch box/smoko recipes. I thought I’d share this one with you. It’s a fantastic slice which can be adapted to suit the contents of your pantry and a myriad of tastes.
One of my children's all time favourite smoko's would have to be vanilla balls, or rum ball minus the rum.
