Happy Anzac Day

Today is a national holiday in Australia. Similar to our Memorial Day, Anzac Day commemorates World War 1 veterans from both Australia and New Zealand.  They had what proved to be an unsuccessful campaign at Gallipoli, trying to capture Constantinople (now “Istanbul”). It was regarded as a major victory for the Turks, and a disaster for the Allies.

MBD and I are commemorating the event by eating Anzac cookies!  Yummy!  Anyone want the recipe?
