The cooking! Today was the first day of the cooking of the Christmas fare. The girls always love to help, which baffles me a bit as, although I love it, I am usually only a shade or two below ‘super cranky’, due to tiredness, the heat etc etc and I’m sure I’m not too pleasant to be around most years. Ah, it’s good to have forgiving kids 🙂
So we whack on the Christmas music, and get stuck into it. Today, we made what I call, ‘cheese and bacon roll up savoury thingies’. I can’t remember where the recipe came from or what they are supposed to be called but I first made them years ago and they have been a firm Christmas favourite ever since, to the point where apparently, “it’s just not Christmas without them”.
While I like the taste, they are a bit of a rigmarole to make, so now that the girls are a bit older (never, ever could coax that boy of mine into helping with the cooking!) we have a real production line going.
Oh and if you want the recipe, sure, you can ask me. I just can’t guarantee that I won’t ‘forget’ to tell you an ingredient or two 😉
What special food do you make – or like to eat! – at Christmas?
