I'm looking forward to hearing how this works out.  I might have a new toy to add to my Christmas list!

Of course I didn't say that I can eat practically the whole bag of mini oreos in a single setting!

@Stargzer....I have heard that Aussies make better coffee than anyone else, your preference here would confirm this?   Certainly it is easy to find good coffee almost anywhere here, but my experiences in the rest of the world in the past 10 or so years are limited to Zimbabwe, which is not the centre of the coffee universe....

@Stargzer....  Yep, lamingtons would be Australian, and they are yummy too.  I'm surprised they haven't got Tim-Tams in, next time you go there say "I'm ropeable; why haven't youse got Tim-Tams?" and that should cause them to get some.

("Ropeable" is a lovely Aussie slang word meaning "p***ed off" although I think Americans usually do without the "off?"  And Aussies use the plural "youse".

@DavidAshton:  ... Tim-Tams ... Kingstons ...

I haven't had either of those, but Mark, co-owner of the Bean Rush Cafe is from Australia; his wife Shannon is from Annapols, and she's learned to make Lamingtons (Chcolate-covered and Raspberry-covered, each rolled in coconut) and Sausage Rolls, which are featured the first Saturday of the month.  I'll be getting my Sausage Roll and Lamington fix this coming Saturday.  Emphasis is on the Sausage, not the roll.  I figure the protein in the Sausage Roll smoothes out the absorption of the sugar from the Lamington.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

@Max: it's a shorter flight to BWI, even though it's a Sausage Roll, not a Bacon Roll.

@David: They are fiendishly addictive.  As are Kingstons - another biscuit made byt the same company - Arnotts - two coconut-y biscuits sandwiching a layer of chocolate.  And ANZAC biscuits - a king of large oatmeal and honey cookie.

Get your spare room ready -- I just booked my flight to Australia!!!

@Antedeluvian..." (Tim-Tams are...the greatest biscuit (cookie) in the world."

They are fiendishly addictive.  As are Kingstons - another biscuit made by the same company - Arnotts - two coconut-y biscuits sandwiching a layer of chocolate.  And ANZAC biscuits - a king of large oatmeal and honey cookie.   And I am diabetic and shouldn't even look at them, let along eat them!
