THE CHRISTMAS SHOPPING IS COMPLETE – HOORAY!
Okay, maybe I am being a little optimistic when I say that all the shopping is done, but at least all the present shopping is finished – just the food to think about now. I got my recipe books out yesterday and I’ve been looking through them trying to decide what to make for pudding on Christmas Day. We are not fans of Christmas pudding, so that will not be featuring, but I always like to make something special. Pavlova is a tradition in our family now, so I will definitely be making that, but I want to make something else too. At the moment I am torn between:
- Girdlebuster Pie (which is worth making for the name alone!) – A crushed digestive/chocolate biscuit base, coffee ice cream filling and a butterscotch caramel topping.
- Ice Cream Cake – vanilla ice cream with chocolate chips and crushed honeycomb mixed through it.
- or Strawberry Ginger Pudding – crushed ginger biscuits, mascarpone cheese, natural yoghurt and strawberries
What would your choice be?
The answer to yesterday’s question is ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas (also known as A Visit from St Nicholas) and is generally attributed to Clement Clarke Moore, although it was first published anonymously in 1823 .
