Greetings chums, here’s a quick round up of what we managed to cook, bake and eat in December. It was the time of Christmas cheer and food so it was quite a lot obviously! Here’s hoping January doesn’t look quite this bad!
Baked – fyi, most of these are mentioned in the Christmas baking post.
Mince pie fudge
Gingerbread star tree
Baby shower cupcakes – with homemade chocolate buttons
Bill’s Christmas lunch
60th Birthday Cake
Honey glazed gammon
Chicken, Ham and Leek Pie
I also need to tell you about a rum liqueur we discovered over Christmas. Some of our Australian family gifted us this Bundaberg rum liqueur that is chocolate and coffee flavour – they live in Bundaberg so it was an inspired gift idea. Now first impressions; rum? yuck. Smell? Yuck, but taste wise this is absolutely delicious with coke (or diet coke if your us). I highly recommend it, my sisters and I managed to get through most of the bottle over the Christmas period and we even got other family members trying it too.
Phew, that’s an awfully long list! Mostly sweet stuff and eating out it seems, but hey it was December which is always a busy month full of eating out. The fact of the matter is that when we weren’t out and about we were basically just exhausted and not fancying cooking. That and soup this time of year, is just one of my favourite things! What delights has everyone else been cooking, baking and eating?
p.s. sorry about the lack of photos, we both took loads over the holiday break, but none seem to be of food!
