Hi Karen, your post is cracking me up:-). For speaking the “same” language we certainly do have a lot of different words for things!! Tailgating is when you go a sporting event extremely early and groups of friends park together and “party” before the game or event. We drink and eat/grill and just have a grand old time before the game!! Say a football (American football is probably the most know for tailgating prior to) game starts at 4pm…people get to the stadium or some near by parking lot at 11am and drink and eat with their friends then go to the game at 4.
Yes, parchment paper is our grease proof paper…we also have wax paper which is also grease proof. And icing sugar for us would definitely be powdered sugar/confectioners sugar:-)
