“Wattie’s tomato sauce” and “cheesymite” were also good when they were still around.
welcome to new zealand, the #1 freest country in the world and picturesque location of the lord of the rings movies
I heard that a guy had a phone up his bum featured in the paper on Sunday.
This country really loves a good old fashioned “weird thing in someone’s body” article. More so when they include the x-ray pictures.
I better be pleasantly surprised that it isn’t about kiwifruit…

Thought I’d share my favourite biscuit recipe with you all.
- 1 Cup of Plain All-Purpose Flour
- 1 Cup of Caster Sugar
- 1 Cup of Desiccated Coconut
- 2 Cups of Rolled Oats
- 125g Butter (softened)
- 2 tbsp of Golden Syrup
- 1 tsp of Baking Soda
- 3 tbsp of Boiling Water
- Heat oven to 180oC (160oC fan bake). Line two baking trays with nonstick baking paper. Place flour, caster sugar, coconut and oats in a bowl and stir to combine. Make a well in the centre.
- Place butter and golden syrup in a saucepan to melt, or microwave in a bowl to melt. Dissolve baking soda in boiling water. Add melted ingredients and dissolved baking soda to dry ingredients and mix to combine.
- Roll spoonfuls into balls and press onto prepared baking trays, allowing space for biscuits to spread while cooking.
- Bake for 15 minutes or until firm and golden brown. Remove to a wire rack to cool, and enjoy!
There are so many variations for making ANZAC biscuits, this is just one of many I pulled from tumblr. Enjoy ANZAC Day tomorrow by having a go at making your own ANZAC biscuits!
