I suppose anywhere you go there are phrases and idioms to learn, but I'm finding some of the ones here especially interesting. For instance, after greeting someone, they'll ask "How're ya going?" (not "How're ya doin'? or How's it going?). And, a woman doesn't "get" pregnant - she falls pregnant (i.e. She decided to fall pregnant. -or- She fell pregnant.) Also, if someone invites you to supper, don't expect a meal. Supper here means dessert. An announcement was made that we'd have a pot luck supper after a Church meeting the other day - and it was all cookies (actually - here, cookies are called biscuits) And, yesterday I went swimming with a friend and when I changed into my suit, she said, "I like your costume." They call it a "swimming costume" here.
Below is an interesting recipe from the "supper" the other night:
Mars Bar Slice
4 Mars Bars
4 oz. butter (at least this measurement isn't in grams, like usual)
4 cups rice bubbles (a.k.a. Crispy Rice Cereal)
Choco bits to melt for the top
Melt Mars bars and butter together. Combine with rice bubbles. Press into slice tin. Drizzle melted chocolate over top. Refrigerate, slice and serve.
