Country of the Week: Australia / Fairy Bread
I’m afraid Australia got the short end of the stick last week since we were so busy preparing for Lily’s birthday party. But we did manage to make Australian meat pies, eat Wiley Wallaby Liquorice, and watch Babe and The Rescuers Down Under. (I cobbled together the meat pies by combining a bunch of different online recipes.)
We also made Fairy Bread. An Australian friend of mine from my Special Olympics International days said that Fairy Bread is very popular at children’s birthday parties. So we made some for Lily’s party.
I looked up the recipe online and you’ll never guess what’s in Fairy Bread: white bread, butter, and sprinkles! How easy is that?
Most of the girls at the party liked the Fairy Bread. There were a few who said they didn’t, but I think they were just being dramatic.
