Culture Shock

I am working in Australia this month.  I have been here before and survived the "Vegemite Initiation."    My friend and colleague, Brenda, is working here for the first time.  It was my responsibility to introduce her to Vegemite.

I presented her with Vegemite and toast at breakfast this morning.  She did not look very excited:


 She tentatively took a VERY small bite:


She thought it was DELICIOUS!!!


OK, maybe not.

She thought that her husband, Randy, needed to eat some Vegemite, too.


He was enthusiastic and took a big bite:


Does he like it?


Still deciding...


I think the Anderson breakfast table will remain free of Vegemite indefinitely.

I'm not sure if it's time for Brekky or Tea or Lunch or Tea or ...?

I last ate at 3:30 am when my tummy screamed "Dinner time!" I slept until noon. It's 3:30 pm in NY, but 5:30am in Melbourne. Time for brekky? or afternoon tea?

Vegemite is great! Love it on toast, especially home made. My daughters been to the land down under. I have not. But we liked the treats she brought home. Lol. It's also good in stews and gravy.
