I made two for Thanksgiving this year. 16:45 chris i quite like them too 16:46 chris you cant get the same sort of pumpkins here though 16:46 chris so every year its a hunt to try to find some pumpkin pie mix :) 16:48 owen What about turkey? Do NZ'ers ever fix whole turkeys? 16:49 chris yep often of christmas 16:49 chris in fact that is about the only time nzers usually eat turkey 16:50 chris of=for 16:51 chris my uncle cooks xmas dinner on his bbq every year, turkey included 16:51 owen American's pretty much only cook a whole turkey for Thanksgiving and maybe Christmas. Too bad, though, 'cause turkey's so good. 16:52 owen I guess NZ is suited to BBQ on Christmas in a way the US isn't :) 16:53 chris :-) yep xmas on the beach ... ive done that before 16:54 owen I think you'd find many here who wouldn't mind x-mas on the beach, but few who would put up with wintery Independence Day fireworks. 16:56 chris heh 17:03 rach hi 17:15 chris heh ive already given my parents and my sister one (not as presents though) 17:18 rach more as punishment :-) 17:19 owen You'd think techies got enough requests for technical support from the family!
