Hope you all had a fantastic christmas - we had a lovely day, just the three of us in the morning and then TheInLaws and UncleN came round for dinner. I love Christmas dinner and all the trimmings - my brussel sprouts were steamed perfectly if I do say so myself!
I usually make a trifle and buy a Christmas Pudding but this year I made both - I made Gino D'Acampo's cheats christmas pudding. This isn't as solid as normal christmas pudding which has to be steamed for hours. It has also lasted well - as Hubby and I have been eating the leftovers over the past few days! I also did a chocolate fondant for MBBG, as this can be made up in advance and kept in the fridge until you need to bake it.
So it's New Years Eve - 2012 went very quickly. We are going to SisterInLaws today, it will be nice to spend time with everyone - BrotherInLaw, Nephews 1-4 and TheInLaws will all be there.
Time for more food - party food - here is one of my super easy favourites which I make quite often:
Nigellas Cocktail Sausages
Happy New Year to all my blog readers - thanks for visiting - whether you are regular readers or have just stopped by looking for something in particular. I have thoroughly enjoyed doing my blog since April, my crafty Thursday posts haven't happened as often as I would like but hope to remedy that in the new year. I also find it fascinating the countries that my blog audience come from. I was hoping for UK and Ireland readers but I also have had pageviews in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Israel, New Zealand and Russia to name a few!
Here's to a great 2013 and lots more baking.
