Christmas is well and truly over ... I have just eaten the last mince pie!!
Until this year I have never really liked mince pies, but all the ones I have bought or had given to me this year have been delicious. I wonder if it's because this years helpings were all vegan, but I can't see it making that much difference to be honest. But anyway it seems that now I am a mince pie convert. 😀
I do have a jar of mincemeat in the cupboard and a roll of pastry in the fridge so who knows I might make some for myself, or maybe they would be more special if I wait until this years Christmas season after all the jar has a September date on it and it has brandy added so that would preserve it even more. With my jar of Christmas Chutney in the cupboard as well it seems that I have the start of my Christmas shopping ... which might be very helpful if I've run out of housekeeping money by then.
There how many times did I just type the word Christmas in January!!
Lunch yesterday was the last portion of the homemade soup from last week. The little garlic bread that I had with it was a huge disappointment. It was a yellow sticker special offer from Booths sometime last year, a box with two in it and I'd already had one and really not enjoyed it, but by then I had already frozen this other one. I had been debating throwing it away but in the mindset of waste nothing I thought it would be passible dunked in soup ... wrong!!
