From the absence of posts on the blog, you can tell it's been a tad crazy in our world since we arrived home from France. The good news is that the craziness is coming to an end - for a few weeks over Christmas I plan to slow down and actually get some time to get some recipes blogged and up here for you all.
In the meantime though, we've been doing a countdown of Christmas inspiration on Facebook. For those of you who are standing strong against the pull of social media, here's the list so far:-
Day 1 - Spiced Pecan Pie & Egg Nog Ice Cream
Day 2 - Calendula Salve
Day 3 - Gingerbread (best recipe ever!)
Day 4 - Boules de Neige
Day 5 - Sal's Smoked Salmon Dip
Day 6 - Guilt Free Chocolate Balls
Day 7 - Mangomisu
Day 8 - Fruity Pear Mince Tarts
Day 9 - Spiked Lemon Chicken Salad
Day 10 - Brie with Basil & Pesto Dressing
Day 11 - Irish Creme Liqueur
Day 12 - Jo's Tikka Salmon
Day 13 - Mulled Wine Sorbet
Day 14 - Lime, Elderflower & Mint Mojito Sorbet
Day 15 - Beetroot, Pomegranate & Pistachio Salad
Day 16 - Steamed Chocolate & Raspberry (or Cherry) Mudcakes
So, there's a nice mix in there of recipes that will hopefully help you planning your Christmas menu.
