surprise...surprise....no rush hour traffic this morning
and the cook-fest has begun....home made soup heading for the freezer....
Christmas Cake made but not yet marzipaned or iced.....what's the rush...tomorrow is another day and believe me folks I have iced my Christmas Cake on Christmas Eve on one or two occasions in the past and it was fine...well let's put it this way there were no complaints
Christmas Dinner would be an absolute doodle if that was the only meal we had to think about....oh no they expect a meal every night in the run up to the day of mega feasting...how inconsiderate....the shopping list reads like War and Peace and then it's a logistical nightmare to fit everything into the fridge but the bonus of the sub zero weather is that the garage is colder than the fridge and doubles up as extra storage.
It looks like another chilly snowfall today so it's time to get the oven on and cook the ham....mix up the ingredients for the meat loaves and getting chopping veggies for even more soup.....yes we are stocking up the larders...I have the feeling it's going to be a long winter.
