April. This day originally marked the Australia and New Zealand Army Corp who fell at Gallipoli in Turkey during WWI, but (like our own commemorative events) has since come to represent remembrance for all Australian and New Zealand war dead, injured and survivors. Very sad that these remembrance events seem to keep having to expand to incorporate ever new and terrifying conflicts.
I have a few things that I still follow that connect me to home, the first being cricket (which, according to Ania, is a sport based on standing in a field where everything is called a wicket) and the second being these delicious vegan Anzacbiscuits
Anzacbiscuits to me were know as ‘the biscuits grandma makes’ that lived in a large glass jar. As I have got older I have learned that these biscuits are actually popular in Australia and New Zealand and like many recipes, each slightly differ in ways
With a great big shout of 'I'm in. ' I set about making these AnzacBiscuits. You see they were originally baked to send to soldiers serving in the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) in Gallipoli
I made this recipe originally for my mom who is diabetic and if you know how diabetes works you need to eat small portions during the day, and I made this for her to guiltlessly eat with her evening tea
