CHRISTMAS FOOD - YUMMY


This past weekend I was sooooo busy preparing for Christmas, I started on Friday night and it continued for 48 hours, my feet were very sore on Sunday night, I did the usual house -
work on the weekend and wrapped Christmas presents and also did my Christmas cooking ready for the in-laws to arrive yesterday for their 2 weeks holiday. We are also taking 2
weeks annual leave from Christmas Eve, I am so looking forward to morning sleepins instead
of rising at 4.50am Mon-Fri to go to work.

Here are some photos of the goodies I baked on the weekend.

Weight Watchers Christmas cake recipe, it's soooo easy and Yummy, soak 1kg of Mixed Fruit
in 2 cups of strong black coffee overnight (I also add some Bundy Rum to mine), next day add 150g of chopped fruit and nut chocolate and 2 cups of self raising flour, bake in 160 deg
oven for 2 hours, you may need to cover with alfoil for some of the time as it starts to burn
the fruit a little.


These are individual Christmas puddings, also a WW recipe.

Rocky Road, this was just from my head - 1 pkt of chopped up Allen's snakes, 1 pkt of small
marshmallows, 1 chopped cherry ripe bar, 2 chopped turkish delight bars, a small packet of
unsalted nuts, I melted some dark and milk chocolate button melts together and poured
over the top, popped into the fridge overnight and cut into slices voila.


My favourite Rum Balls


White Christmas, I used a new recipe this year. I have never liked White Christmas however
my husband loves it so I make it for him and then end up throwing a lot away each year, I
hate the taste of the copha in it - this year I found a recipe using white choc button melts
instead of the copha and it is actually quite nice. This year I decided I will make some little packets of my goodies and take into my work friends instead of throwing away. Instead of
mixed fruit in the White Christmas I have used sultanas, chopped cherries and some chopped nuts.

Christmas Star and Christmas tree biscuits, this is the first time I have made these, the recipe was in the Dec 2008 WW magazine, they are yummy also.

I think I have enough Christmas goodies to put out for everyone to enjoy.

APRONS and SECRET SEWING

Oh gosh this heat we've been having on the East Coast has been terrible.  We put the aircon on in the bedroom at night as it's too ...
