The Random Musings of a Jersey Girl & Her Family Finding their Way Around The World

6 months and still it’s there
Christmas in July
I went to someone’s house for a playdate and she made ham, cheese and butter sandwiches– I just watched in complete shock.
Have you discovered Fairy Bread yet? We went to a luncheon at someone’s house, and they passed out a platter of Fairy Bread to the kids. It is white bread (no crusts), spread with butter (naturally), and then a layer of sprinkles (or “hundreds and thousands,” as they say here). My kids thought it was the best thing since, well, sliced bread. Apparently, it’s a childhood staple as far as treats go. Who knew?
Personally, I think it’s to do with the type of bread here. I’ve noticed that it’s not quite as “squishy” as the stuff I remember in the States… the crusts are crustier and the innards are thicker. I remember my grandparents buttering all the bread, too, because apparently bread “back in the day” was the same way. Anyway, butter seems to be an improvement.
Yea I’ve seen Fairy Bread! For my son’s birthday, my MIL was insistent on making Fairy Bread although I didn’t see the need since we didn’t have many kids and my son isn’t fond of sweets. Apparently it’s such a staple to children’s birthday parties.
Tors, oh man and I thought I was the only one who noticed a difference. MJ said I was just picking on everything Australian but see there is a difference between Aussie and American breads! Plus there are different types of sliced bread here as well such as sliced bread for toast or sliced bread for sandwich! Weird!
