Those of you who know us know just how busy Christmas week is for us what with a wedding anniversary and 2 family birthdays all squeezed in between Christmas day and New Year’s Day.
This year wasn’t much different.
Christmas Day saw a lazy day, full of surprises and a little cooking. I know cook a pavlova instead of a Christmas cake which I made that morning. I thought it had failed so turned the oven off and left it to itself. But it had other ideas and when I came to clear the oven out for Stuart to cook our meal (evening meal when it was cooler), I pulled a piece from it to nibble. It was lovely, soft and chewy just how we like it. And so it was back on the menu and all I had to do was remember how to make vegan whipped cream from 2 tins of frozen coconut cream.
The table and the Christmas table cloth, freshly made eggnog is mandatory (after all I need to use the egg yolks somehow.)
