You say tom mate o. I say tom ahto

but we all say this is the Kiwi Sauce Bottle, don’t we?
The tomato shaped dispenser is a retro icon from the 1950’/ 60s used by Watties for years in New Zealand. Now classic Kiwiana. Even been seen on Happy Days at the Cunningham’s kitchen table apparently.

and it’s all about the squeeze people

One good one is all you need.  There’s a reason some things endure, and it’s quite often design. One squirt = one serve. Be elegant in your portions. Control waste. Trust the mechanism.

And while I’m dishing out info like a google pro, what’s the difference between Tomato Sauce and Ketchup? From what I can pick up its definitely more sugar, and less important, less vinegar. Seems it’s hard to go back once you’ve had Ketchup, but I’ve been to America recently eating way too many french fries with ketchup and I’m not hunting it out in my local supermarket.

Totes happy with the original. But liking ketchup is not a mis-allegiance to the Aussie or Kiwi flag no matter how you slice it. Found this funny forum thread here in Poh’s Kitchen FYI.

Bloody Christmas… Are you reddy? Groan.
I am not. Not even for this, hence recycling under the influence of Throwback  [but not, hopefully Throwup] Thursday.
About to crack open some bubbles in the shop for the customers, of course.

Cheers friends.

Saving cake, clearly. Leftovers that could go on forever [if you are irrational and can leave them that long]

I loved the film but I haven’t read the book yet, must confess I lifted these quotes from Goodreads.
Have you read it? And or seen the movie? Did it live up to the book?

A picture’s worth a thousand words right?

Yep, thats a corny title I know, but hey, feel free to come up with a better one than mi -e -ine

And while I am in the mood, it kind of suits…

She’s got a smile that it seems to me
Reminds me of childhood memories
Where everything
Was as fresh as the bright blue sky
