tomorrow our sweet girl leaves for australia and there will be tears, lots of them, but first i have to share the yucky faces created when many of us decided to try her vegemite. the family she'll be working for sent her a wonderful care package last week, and personally i gravitated towards the boomerang when i read "yeast extract" as to what vegemite actually is...so with family and friends gathering for one last good-bye on sunday, we decided we just had to give it a try. no toast, no crackers, just fingers with globs of vegemite. believe me, toast would not have made it taste better.
only a few of us were brave enough to try this australian spread and well, let's just say, it was awful. i tried it, but since i was taking the photos, there isn't a photo of my face. let's just say it's safe to say that it was very familiar to those below.
her friend getting ready
her friend done and now reaching for her bottled water
now my mom doesn't seem to be too phased based on this photo, but i did hear her say, yuck.
my little sister really knows how to sum up what vegemite tastes like.
our son's girlfriend was grossed out, but laughed throughout the taste test.
my nephew...well he had his water ready and instantly tired to remove the taste from his tongue.
guess what, it's not that easy...but chocolate chip cookies remove the taste :)
our daughter, "brave brave girl, i'm going to australia, i can eat vegemite" hated it, too.
i think it's safe to say that we need to send peanut butter, almond butter and nutella in the first care package that leaves our house.
