The Geese are getting Fat
I found, ordered and received boxes of Xmas crackers from here in Greece. Last year they came from England. Too expensive now that Britain is no longer in the EU.
Presents have been ordered online and some have arrived
Pickled onions, beetroot chutney, chicken liver pate and something new, balsamic figs are on the list . I should get most made this week.
Here's hoping those figs are worth the effort . Quince paste, membrillo is in the freezer, made with this season's quince.
The first Xmas mince pies are out of the oven. They're delicious, made with mincemeat I had in the freezer.
I've made another bowl of mincemeat and extra pastry for a few more trays of spiced Xmas pies.
I might make a Xmas cake or just a last minute boozy fruit cake.
6 bottles of sauv blanc received from Northern Greece.
For those who enjoy fine wine and not that stuff from the plastic barrels.
Tis the festive season.
I think I've got it. By jove, I think I've got it.
