For those of you following along with the advent calendar opening (Jude, are you there? 🙂 ) here’s another couple of the pictures which were opened over the weekend. After today there are only five more windows to open – doesn’t time fly?
In other Christmas news – I have baked a lot of mince pies and more than half of them are in the freezer ready for their journey up to Scotland for the festive season. I had to freeze them really quickly, or they would all have disappeared! Tomorrow I am going to pick up the ingredients I forgot to get last week and then I can make some cranberry, pecan and white chocolate cookies. I have made them every year for the last few years and it wouldn’t be Christmas without them. I may have to freeze them quickly too, or I will have eaten them all before anyone else gets a chance. I can resist mince pies very easily, but not these biscuits. I posted about them here three years ago (how time flies!) with the recipe.
Here’s a silly Christmas joke – I thought I had heard them all, but this was a new one to me (or maybe it’s a while since I heard it and so had forgotten it!).
Who beats his chest and swings from Christmas cake to Christmas cake?
I hope your preparations are going well.
