After a long trip, I’ve safely arrived in Sydney, Australia!
I’ll admit it: I’ve gotten about 4 hours of patchy sleep in the last 48 hours, so I don’t have a clever or detailed crochet-related blog post for you. But, I can give you a little advice on eating Vegemite. (Can we all pretend that’s incredibly useful?)
We landed at 6am Australia-time, so we arrived in time to have a lovely Australian breakfast. For me, it was Vegemite on toast with a Cappuccino.
Vegemite gets a bad name. It’s a condiment made of yeast-extract (a by-product of beer-brewing) that most Americans think tastes awful. True, it’s not a taste for everyone. If you’re going to stand a chance at liking it, you’ve got to eat Vegemite the proper way.
Vegemite is best in small doses. My preferred method is to take a piece of toast, and spread it with a layer of butter. Then, spread a thin layer of Vegemite on the buttered toast. The Vegemite will be slightly transparent looking.
I can’t promise you’ll like it… but you stand a much better chance than if you bite down on a giant glob of the stuff!
Did you know that my birthday is December 31st? I’ll be turning 30!
I’m going to celebrate by having a jumbo sale! So, you’ll want to make sure to check back on the 31st to see what’s in store!
