I made a peach crisp but the peaches were subpar so now I’m just eating the crisp bits, which is basically just brown sugar and oats.
Strange but not a stranger

I love my car more than I love most people.

Ham, eggs, tomato and onion. It's also common to add green pepper and olives but that would only be spoiling a good pizza. :P

LOL!

That combination (without the olives and green capsicum) would be called an Aussie over here!  I guess great minds think alike, or is it fools seldom differ?

I used to break an egg into a small, oiled, ovenproof bowl, sprinkle grated cheese on, bits of ham or cooked bacon, more cheese, thinly sliced cherry toms, final sprinkle of cheese. Then bake for 5 min in hot over, check, bake some more if necessary.

Mmm...   That'd be heaven on a stick, if you put it on a stick...

I find it amusing how sometime "nationalities" are used in food.  For example, I seriously doubt the French have ever heard of French fries, except for a well know American fast food chain.

"As American as apple pie!" I had one cooked by an American, it was, er, apple pie.

Yes, and staple foods rarely seem to get the titles.

Actually on a slight but related topic change, one of the exciting things on the food scene over here is the rising availability of native Australian foods,, particularly herbs and spices.  Things like lemon myrtle, Tasmanian pepper-berry can add a really interesting twist on the normal flavour profiles that we are used to.  Then there are things like quandongs, really delicious if made into a sauce or jam and bush tomatoes which are from the same family as normal tomatoes but are quite different in flavour and make fabulous pickles or relishes.  There are also things like nardoo, a well know (to aboriginal people) aquatic plant that has tasty bulbs to eat and the inner part of stems of cumbungi (a type of native reed) which can be used to make a kind of flour.  These and many more are slowly becoming known here.  Eventually I suspect that we may be able to develop thriving markets and a source of jobs for indigenous Australians.  Maybe it will eventually lead to an export market as well, but there's a long way to go over here first.

Food around the planet isn't really all that different when reduced to basics. Yes, one has escargot or balut as outliers. But before I retired, we had a grill that the cafeteria offered. One week it was Korean, the other weeks it was Italian. I joked with the guy running it that the only difference I saw was which kind of starch was offered with it (rice Vs pasta). He just laughed and agreed. Well, they did use sesame seed oil during the Korean weeks.  ;D

Tsk, that's like saying a curry is a curry is a curry - when there are so many subtle (and not so subtle) differences.

But what can one expect from a nation that pours ketchup over everything?

Tonight I plan on Shrimp Fra Diavlo, maybe Shrimp Scampi, that part is still up in the air. A fresh Mozzarella and tomato salad with a red pepper vinaigrette, with a balsamic reduction.
