The Australian Delicious Foods

They are made with rolled oats, coconut, flour, sugar, golden syrup, batter, bicarbonate of sofa and water. They were made and sent in tins to Australian soldiers at the battlefields during World War I.

Individual mince meat pies, small in size. They are traditionally sold at sporting and other community events, usually smothered with tomato sauce.

I love all foods as long as it doesn't contain buttermilk or cottage cheese.

You can serve me biscuits and red gravy anytime as long as they aren't buttermilk biscuits.

It's all psychological, Denise. I got into some spoiled milk years ago when I was just knee-high to a grasshopper that made me sicker than a dog and the smell of butter milk and cottage cheese remind me of that.

Your article mentions kangaroo meat, Mr A, and I can tell You it is very tasty and nutritious, with a low fat content.

We also sometimes eat parts of the other animal on our coat of arms, the emu.

I have also eaten crocodile and buffalo and camel meat, as well as witchety-grubs, which are large moth larvae, delicious when roasted over coals!

Thank You for this interesting perspective on some of my country's cuisine.

Kangaroos look too cute to eat. I wouldn't mind trying the fish though.
