Hi folks...Ho Ho Ho...I'm on the final leg of the Christmas Cookathon Marathon...the Turkey Crown has been cooked, sliced, bathed in gravy and is off to the freezer until Christmas Eve and will be popped in the oven on Christmas Day to days of being stuck in the kitchen slaving over a hot stove and carving the bird on the day are long gone...
Boxing Day's Roast Beef is ready to be sliced and get the same treatment as the turkey, the yummy ham needs the rind removed and will be popped back in the oven with a delicious sticky brown sugar, orange juice and honey glaze...
 and the Christmas Cakes just need a little festive decoration...
It's amazing how organised and motivated you can be to finish off the Christmas food prep when a very special parcel of  secret "making samples for CHA" delicious red rubber and stencilling goodies arrives in the cubbyhole...
a huge thank you to Tim, Mario, Paula and Mr Stampers Anonymous and a big shout out to Mr UPS for the 2 days ahead of schedule extra speedy delivery. Now that the Christmas prep is sorted...I'm looking forward to a couple of chill out days in my happy place before I head to my local M&S for the last minute bits and pieces so without futher ado...let the "happy bunny/kid in a sweet shop" inky fun begin.
Toodle oo for now
