Foreign food Friday – holiday edition

In honor of all the Christmas festivities in our household and around the world, I’d like to spread some holiday cheer.

Something red:


Kangaroo steaks? Don’t think I’ve seen these in the US yet. Bison, yes. Emu, sometimes. Even alligator, if you’re in certain regions or at a county fair. Must be the cuddly association we have with them as being sweet animals (like Kanga and Roo from Winnie the Pooh), although the truth is certainly quite different for Australians.

And something green:


Yikes! I’m sure that this pesto cheese tastes scrumptious. But I don’t think I could get over it’s vibrant hue if I were confronted by it on a cheese plate.

Happy holidays to all! Hope you’re staying sane in the crunch time of last-minute holiday preparations.
