Cool things of 2010 – No. 2

So, this actually did happen in 2010 (as opposed to my previous posting).

Micah and I spent nearly two weeks in Australia in February 2010.  One of the best things we ate…a turkey sandwich with avocadoSeriously.  We hadn’t eaten just a regular delicious deli sandwich for months, let alone avocado – so this sandwich was heaven!

But that’s not the cool thing.  Here’s the cool thing I learned:

#2. Spreading avocado like a condiment on your sandwich

avocado spread

Spread it with a knife!  The only way to do it.  Thank you Aussie sandwich shop.

avocado not spread

If you don’t spread, you end up with a slice of avocado in your lap…and uneven avocado distribution when you take your bites.  Who wants that?  I know!

    I am fan of the avocado on bread – but being Australian I have to ask – did you try our Vegemite. Did you survive the salty black goo that we Aussies love and all foreign people gag on?

    Haha…actually, that’s something I didn’t get a chance to try, but I really really wanted to! What’s the best way to eat it? I might be able to find some here in Seattle…but would love to know how the Aussies eat it!

    In a sanger – as we Aussies called it, that is Australian for sandwich – or thinly spread on toast. Vegemite toast is the most popular munchie, especially with a slice of cheese on top..oh made myself hungry writing about it. Remember, the technique is thinly spread – lashings of that stuff incites a taste-bud protest.

    If you can get a photo of your reaction onto your blog that would please me to no end.

    Let me know if you can obtain it.
