And sultanas are what Beli would call raisins.

I don't think I would be able to understand a USA menu.

Well, they can be purchased from certain bakeries or cafes but most of the time people make them themselves from scratch. They taste best when they are fresh.

Sort of but they usually have butter, baking powder and currants or sultanas as well. I often use buttermilk in place of regular milk because it makes them softer and lighter but that is just a personal thing.

I'd say that everything on that website is pretty accurate, particularly the sweet/savoury thing. Notiti's Australian boyfriend used to give us a hard time about wanting sweet things for breakfast. He said donuts and pastries are for desert not breakfast and he would encourage us to have a ham and tasty cheese croissant instead of something sweet.

I wonder if an USA scone is similar to an Australian rockcake.....

Donuts for breakfast? That does sound too sweet for me. ha, ha, I think I would die of starvation if I went to the USA. People from the USA often comment that Australian milkshakes are disgusting as they're too bland. Each to their own.

The odd thing is we are comparing foods from the two countries with the fattest citizens so we're obviously both "wrong'. lol.

Red Lobster IS NOT a proper restaurant...despite what some may think.

Beli...despite what the movies and my feelings might be, USA is not one big stip mall. I am sure it is probably pretty similar to Ausland (maybe Calluna could speak for me...thanks for clearing up the other point too...my bad).

You would survive just fine in the US...we would just have to cook for you and take you out to dinning establishments of higher quality (and we would throw in a fast food joint and chain place like Applebee's for entertainment purposes).

mmmmmm KFC biscuits (covers thighs)

they serve them all hot and lovely with little packets of honey. the honey's not so good though, because it is in a little packet instead of in one of those cute little squeezy bears. you can also dip them right into the gravy and the fake potatoes. mmmm, gah, i'm so freaking hungry.

i love learning things about the foods and cultures of our interferencers.

The funny thing about Red Lobster is that they advertise for it all the time where I live and there's none in the area.

i get that here too for boston market.

as well as 7-11, that one REALLY infuriates me cuz i grew up on slurpees and for me not to be able to have one whenever i want is just appalling. how did this city manage to let all the 7-11s get bought out?

Slurpees and Go-Go Taquitos are two of the staples of my diet.
