Well as previously mentioned I did get my mitts on the book that is Nigella's Christmas, and boy was I gonna use it!! I had spent a small fortune for the previous 2 supermarket visits on seasonal ingredients, and with my heart brimming at the idea of giving homebaked gifts to our lovely neighbours and friends, I began!! Two days and 6 dishwasher loads later the idea had worn a tad tarnished...........but! It all tasted fab - I made 'chocolate biscuits with icing sprinkles', 'cranberry christmas morning muffins', 'cranberry mincemeat tarts' and 'christmas puddini truffles'.
At the end I wrapped and decorated these homemade goodies and added some labels and delivered them with love!! They were all well received and only one neighbour eluded me and disappeared before I could deliver..........so no choice really when they hadn't returned by Boxing Day we ate them ourselves - um yummy!!!
I think I need a break from being a 'Domestic Goddess' until perhaps..........next Christmas!!
My blog entries are a little like buses none for an age then they all come at once!
