Ghana - omo tuo, or rice balls, with chicken and fish in a palm nut soup
Spain - chicken noodle soup, boiled eggs, chickpeas, and peppermint
Poland - Pierogi, a delicious dumpling
Australia. BBQ what is it?
FTA: Charlotte, from Sydney, said: ‘We always have steak, sausages, chicken skewers and sweet potato as part of a traditional Aussie barbecue.
That was BRILLIANT!
Guess Thanksgiving has been "culturally appropriated"
Christmas, not Thanksgiving. The video posted above about KFC in Japan instead of turkey is amazing.
The North Korean air show.... what a hoot!!!
I know! It absolutely cracked me up.
Thanks for posting
I had to look that up. First husband was Swedish and strangest thing I remember having at the family’s home was egg shells in the coffee. MIL was a marvelous cook, unlike my own who specialized in refried spaghetti with catsup.
It’s such fun to twist your mind to a new way of seeing. You’re most welcome.
We used to have group Christmas dinners with everyone bringing their childhood comfort food, even if no one else would eat it. I made bread pudding grandmother’s sisters taught me after her funeral. One friend brought a pork pie.
Our local KFC is frying turkeys for Thanksgiving. Order ahead.
Food science run amok in my opinion but some will buy it! Love the leftover suggestions.
Now let us see what they can do for the Christmas Ham or Goose?
It’s perfect party food because everyone will want to try it. Absolutely hysterical.
I collect funny saying buttons and one of my favorites is “You are what you eat” with a picture of a turkey.
