I'm writing this on ANZAC Day. For those outside of Australia and New Zealand this stands for Australia and New Zealand Army Corp and is our remembrance day for anyone who has fought in conflicts for Australia or New Zealand. It involves a dawn service, a parade, a Public Holiday, a gambling game legal only one day a year called 2-Up and baking and eating a biscuit (cookie) called the ANZAC Biscuit. I believe the biscuit was developed in World War 1 to be a nutritious, energy filled biscuit that would keep well so it could be mailed from home to the soldiers.
We are having a quiet home day. We marked the occasion by baking ANZAC biscuits which we shared hot out the oven with some friends who dropped in earlier.
