Not much sewing (actually none) has happened in the last couple of days as I have been chained to my kitchen
We are hosting the family on Christmas night ( Christmas lunch is at my DD # 3's house - Nicole), but I have all of the rest of the family for tea, something we have done now for about 12 years.
Tea is a simple affair of nibbles and bring a plate to share fare, I am sharing lots of plates,
The menu is ...
Home made sausage rolls
There is also a turkey roll that I will precook and serve cold on a bed of crisp lettuce with mixed greens and cranberry salad. I also have a large ham on the bone to slice.
The sweets are..
For the littlies.
Ginger bread men - of course
and Chocolate dipped shortbread
Chocolate licorice slice and hazelnut slice (with shortbread base and white choc topping - yum)
As well as chocolate drizzled shortbread trees. Sheree also made some Apricot balls, but I forgot to photograph them.
I also have some lovely Christmas cherries, and juicy fresh watermelon.
It was 41 degrees Celsius in Adelaide today - to hot to even step out side for a minute, and with the oven on all day its lucky for us that we have air conditioning. I should have just popped the shortbread outside and baked it there lol.
