In honour of Australia Day, which is tomorrow, Wed. january 26, I am sharing with you one of our favourite ' icons'........the Tim Tam. It is a biscuit made by an Australian company called Arnott's . ( I think it is probably a multi-national company now but originated in Australia, and the biscuits are still made here ). Any way they are chocolate biscuits and they are delicious; especially dunked into coffee, hot chocolate or better still a coffee flavoured liqueur like Tia Maria or Baily's. A favourite way to have them is to bite off the top and the bottom, put the biscuit into your liqueur and use it as a straw to suck through. Yummo ! I,m having mine today with hot chocolate. Australia Day is celebrated with a public holiday, and being summer most people get outside with family and friends and cook a BBQ with sausages, lamb chops, salads, a couple of beers and a bottle of red wine. Enjoy Tea on Tuesday and visit Kimmies blog here to join in.
