About a month ago I mentioned I saw someone found my blog by searching “How to make vegemite sunflower seeds.” That someone was from Australia, I thought that was pretty neat. So, I scoured the internet trying to figure out what they were looking for, but I came up empty. I decided to email a few places.
You’d think Australia.com would be happy to give some sort of explanation since it’s a tourist website. Don’t they want to share the joys of Australia cuisine with me? I guess not, they never answered. I also emailed a little online store that sells everything Australian, but most of their items are out of stock and I never heard back from them, either. Finally I tried Australia.gov.au, and they actually replied! Here’s the response:
Dear Sir/Madam Thank you for forwarding your inquiry to www.australia.gov.au - the entry point to Australian Government information and services. Please note that this is a referral service and, therefore, I am unable to answer your questions directly. I can, however, refer you to the most appropriate Australian Government website in relation to your inquiry if applicable. Please enter "vegemite sunflower seeds" in your internet search engine. There are non-Government websites with serving/recipe suggestions for vegemite with sunflower seeds, etc. Kind Regards australia.gov.au team They really weren't much help. Sorry, Australia. I'll keep trying. In other news, I think my stomach shrunk (but only on the inside). I had GreenMax for breakfast and skipped lunch. I was really hungry all day and especially when I went grocery shopping after work. Then when I got home I made a little snack for myself, and I was full after what seemed like just a few bites! Maybe it was this awesome bread I was eating. It's very dense bread. You only get 7 slices, but if you're making a sandwich you really only need to cut one piece in half. I made another tahini sauce to spread on mine. Then I sprinkled it with giant olives. Not really, it just looks that way. They are pitted kalamata olives. Not much of a dinner...but I guess I did eat a bunch more olives with the sauce once these little sandwiches were gone. But still.
