Before you give me any credit for the following food I must tell you, NONE of it is mine!
I love to cook, but even with my lovely new oven, I am still not a fan of baking.
My Mum however, does wonderful cooking AND baking. Frequently when she visits she brings along some yummy goodies, and I especially love it when she does her forentines, mocha chocolate balls, and shortbread.
As we are having our church group here tonight, to share some thoughts on Advent, chances are there won’t be any left to photograph, so I made sure I photographed them BEFORE our guests arrive!
So here is what you would be served in our house, along with tea, coffee or Marks and Spencers non-alcholic mulled punch. It is delicious served warm, and fills the house with wonderful aromas.
mocha fudge balls (dipped in chocolate with a walnut on top)
and my Mum’s florentines – which are legendery among my friends!
I have a growing collection of festive plates to serve food on at Christmas time – nothing expensive, just the odd plate or bowl I have picked up over the past few years. So here is the plate without the goodies to eat …. I know which way I prefer the plate to be!!!
So do you have any special recipes
you bake have baked for you at Christmas time? (Thanks Mum)
And do you have any special plates/dishes you keep for Christmas?
As always, I want to know 🙂
If you think my blog is looking a bit minimalist and sparse, I have been having a few blogging issues, and in an effort to resolve them have removed some of the “clutter”. If you have any trouble with reading or commenting on my blog, I really appreciate being told so I can
panic do something about it!
Come back tomorrow for more blogging about Christmas.
