    Hi Kevin, Wow, wish we had Thanksgiving in Australia, food, food and more food. Would love to try these recipes but would you be so kind to explain to this Aussie what ‘nut meats’ are?

      Zelka – Nut meats really is just another term for “nuts”:), not sure why that term is used but “nut meats” means nuts with their shells removed…that’s all…so English walnut pieces and nuts like that are sometimes referred to as “nut meats.” Does Australia having anything comparable to Thanksgiving? Like a “Founder’s Day” or some sort of big feast day? – Kevin

    Thank you Kevin, that makes sense. We do have Australia Day which is celebrated on the 26th January and that used to be called ‘Foundation Day’ and it is the celebration of the arrival of the First Fleet from England in 1788 to Australia. That is a feast but a BBQ feast, Australians are big on BBQs and being the middle of summer one does not want to be cooking indoors.
