Ads, it is like different parts of the US, people have different accents

Steve Irwin was from the outback so his accent was a very "ocker" country type accent

A lot of us Aussies (including myself) sound quite different to that accent, more refined I guess you could say

For a quick soup, I boil a can of chicken broth (plus a little extra water and a dab of chicken base to boost the flavor) and add some pasta. When the pasta is cooked I use the hot soup to temper a whisked egg and lemon juice. Done.

SO likes it without the lemon.
How can one eat it w/o lemon? This is my "go to" soup when I'm sick. I also don't add meat to it. I probably go a little heavy on the lemon...and, if I'm in a rush, I use orzo instead of rice.

i love aussie accents, especially with women. it's a little sing song-y, up and down, almost like asking a question.

getting back to lunch, i had eggdrop soup to which i added strips of roasted laver (seaweed) to make it a little heartier, and a bag of fritos on the side.

and a can o' diet coke.

Thank you Kylie. I knew it had to be regional or he was from some other Commonwealth country. We have a section also that is really difficult to understand. Deep in the hills of West Virginia some of the folks there sound like they almost come from another country. It is a combination of a Scottish/Irish and southern accent. I love the sound of it though. My second husband came from that part of the country. You really had to listen hard sometimes to understand him.

When my kids were small and would get sick, I would take some chicken broth, add the juice of one lemon and some pastina. Sometimes I would add a beaten egg so it would cook shirred. A favorite and a quick lunch on a busy or lazy day. No meat. Easy to swallow with a sore throat.

A big salad with mixed lettuce, frozen peas, cottage cheese, apple pieces, sunflower seeds and ham. I am now sick of ham after having it 4 days in a row. I truly did not think that would be possible.
