I am interrupting my Middle Eastern mezze theme because it is Anzac day in Australia, just. I have had this post prepped and ready to go for two months (since I last made Anzac biscuits) so that I could post them on the day. Well, I may have been organised in that regard, but I completely forgot about the time difference and, though it is a perfectly reasonable time of day here in the UK, I have just realised there is only one hour and 15 minutes left of Anzac Day in Australia and it is already over in NZ. Ah well, Anzac biscuits are good at any time of year really. In fact, I don’t think I have ever made them specifically for Anzac Day myself.
For the benefit of my UK readership,
Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand, and is commemorated by both countries on 25 April every year to honour the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in Turkey during World War One. It now more broadly commemorates all those who died and served in military operations for their countries. (Wikipedia)
