A to Z Challenge: P

P is for Pavlova, Platypus and Pie

Pavlova is a summer dessert and a fave to have after a BBQ. Made from whipped egg white and sugar and baked, it is then laden with cream and fresh summer fruits. Yum.

The platypus (an Aussie native) is a monotreme - a mammal that lays eggs. Semi-aquatic it has a duck-like bill and webbed feet. While both males and females are born with ankle spurs, the male spur has venom (strong enough to kill a small dog but not fatal to humans).

In Australia we have two types of pie - savoury pies and sweet pies. Savoury pies are pastry filled with meat and gravy - sometimes with vegetables. Eaten with tomato sauce (ketchup to those in the USA) they are a common meal in Australia.
