Ever see a photographer who starts out with a 365 day project, or even a 52 week project and never finishes? Yeah, me too. Well, I recently joined a group of a few other busy photographers who decided to commit to a 12 month project! If we fail this, we’ll be taking donations for a time management seminar. The best part is that it will be totally candid, lifestyle shots of each of our own families/lives. We don’t even have to dredge up random people or make our kids pose for us. We’re calling the series “The Story of ________” and we’ll each be filling in our own blanks. At the end of this post is a link to another photographer who participated and she’ll be linking to someone else. It’s a whole big circle of stories in pictures. So just click through – its fun!
This month i am doing The story of making Anzac biscuits. If your not an Aussie or not from NZ Anzac day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand, commemorated by both countries on 25 April every year to honour the members of the Australia and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli during WW1. It now more broadly commemorates all those who served and died in military operations for their countries. Source and more reading —–> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anzac_Day
We had plans to go to a BBQ but woke up to this -
Now thats just crazy weather especially after a week of temps at about 25 degrees and sunny! So we bunked off the BBQ and stayed home in the warmth and in our PJs instead and decided to commemorate the day by making Anzac bickies. These biscuits have a history too they were sent by wives to soldiers abroad because the ingredients do not spoil easily and the biscuits kept well during naval transportation (and they are yum!) source and more reading —-> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anzac_biscuit
For those that dont know i dont bake and i have lost a decent amount of weight recently so i dont eat biscuits much anymore either……. solution….Teresa Cutter’s Anzac biscuits at only 89 cals a biscuit. Perfect! Recipe here ——> http://www.thehealthychef.com/2011/04/anzac-cookies/
As i said i dont bake so my use of utensils leaves a lot to be desired. Food processor? Mixing bowl? A hand held mixer and a plastic container had to suffice but we did have delicious orange blossom honey all the way from Daylesford which is amazingly divine!
I did tell my assistant that i thought her health and safety skills left a lot to be desired with all that finger licking but she didnt seem to care!
The finished product served with a steaming hot mug of tea got the seal of approval from my troops!
