Happy Little Vegemites

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

A few months back Ari and I came to the realisation that we missed good old Australian Vegemite on toast and went on the hunt for it in Bahrain. We came up empty handed for a while, Marmite was available but who wants marmite right? Actually I've not had it before so I can't really knock it can I? Having said that I'm very sure Vegemite is much nicer. Although a British friend of mine Carly said to come over and give it a try.

Carly's seriously fancy marmite stash.

We finally found it and I did not have to resort to marmite, phew what a relief! Although this is what I would call a novelty sized jar, seriously or perhaps Vegemite for a single person's pantry or a beginners to Vegemite sized jar, maybe even fun size... Oh well, beggars can definitely not be choosers.

Since then it's been Vegemite on everything, okay so maybe not everything but a lot of things. Can't get enough of the stuff, it taste like home on toast.

 Vegemite three ways, on toast, on toast with freshly sliced tomatoes, with grilled cheese.

Please note Ari and I eat Vegemite responsibility, the above images were taken over a number of sittings and not one massive Vegemite binge :) Now go get your Vegemite on!
