The Geese are getting Fat

 Xmas cards are written. The tree and boxes of decorations have come down from the store room. 

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. 


  1. By golly. You are are ahead of me in the preparations.
    We were discussing this evening what to have for our Christmas lunch. May be duck possibly. Port and brandy is definitely on the menu though, whatever else!

  2. K has been discussing food for a month or more. He does the Greek I do the foreign. Good booze is essential.

    Only finished the cards tonight. I've been putting them off. I had better get them in the post tomorrow..or else

  3. It all sounds pretty good to me.

  4. Our Mince Pies are from M & S this year. Lady M usually makes her own, but she needs our other kitchen and kit.

  5. The count down has begun
    I’ll leave the booze buying until later
    I’m not stressing about the food as yet.
    Most of what I will cook will be made a day or two before

  6. Oh I wish i could find my usual enthusiasm for such preparations. There are so many exciting dishes to choose from for a Christmas feast - food we wouldn't dare eat the rest of the year. Somehow the extended uncerysinty had made things feel a bit glum this year.

  7. Sauvignon Blanc, my favourite. It all looks wonderful. I have the crackers and wine but there ends my preparation :)

  8. I have given up trying to make mince pies they seem to boil over the edge and become a sticky mess that I cant get out the tin

  9. Oh, the holiday season is definitely upon us! I started out great, getting the tree up, but I have yet to finish, haha. Perhaps I’m done, and just kidding myself. Kudos to you, in doing all these preparations! Enjoy!
