I will be in danger of Christmas passing me by! Normally by this time of the month, Christmas cards will have been sent, presents almost bought and eating things prepared and in the freezer or cupboards.
Have I done any of that yet, NO!
Truth be told, I have started to soak the dried fruit for a Dundee cake, that will have to be made Tuesday as it is our first free day this week. Today we shall do the cards and a few presents have now been bought. I'm waiting until our walk day to pick up some sausages from a new butcher whose fare I tried the other day and enjoyed. He lives nowhere near us hence waiting until then.
Ah well, everything come to he who waits or some such thing.
A couple of days ago, I cooked 6 jacket potatoes. 2 were eaten on the night, 2 frozen and the other 2 sliced thinly for the dish below.
I fancied some cauliflower cheese but only found broccoli in the indoor freezer. DB doesn't eat either so a tray of vegetables (plus my broccoli) were roasted. Whilst that was doing I made the cheese sauce. Once the vegetables were ready, they were put into a dish, covered with the sauce, then the sliced jacket potatoes and extra cheese put on top. A grand total of 4oz of cheese was used so not too bad.
Herewith before baking:
We are trialling cooking some brisket in the slow cooker. Not done it before so hope all goes well.
