It is a long weekend, of rememberence, and biscuits.
My Grandpa Len was a Lieutenant in the Australian Navy during World War II. He was captured as prisoner of war and held in Japan. He eventually returned home to Adelaide and fought from within himself to save his mental health, for the sake of his wife and four small children. He ended up contributing to family and to civil life in so many incredible and positive ways. I am proud to be his grand-daughter, not just because of his war efforts.
So around ANZAC day, I remember him even more than usual.
I do also, of course, also bake biscuits.
The Anzac Biscuit recipe that I favor this year is one that I found in this book:
This book is cool. It is a part of the We Are What We Do organisation - and the concept that small actions, by lots of people, means big change.
Kind of like the ANZACS really.
The sentiment and action behind the recipe is:
Bake something for a friend: Cook up a great relationship.
Enjoy, from me to you. A virtual basket of biccies.
Tell me, share with me what ANZAC Day means for you?
