I made mince pies this morning. This, (along with some very sherry doused, and tipsy trifle), will be my only British contribution to Christmas mainly because I loathe Christmas pudding and traditional Christmas cake. I do however have very happy memories as a child of helping my Mum to make both of these months in advance of Christmas which is the right way to do it!
I was never a huge fan if mincemeat until recently and now I love it, although I will probably be the only one to eat these mince pies in our house.
I am not cooking this year. I am working and so we have been invited to friends for dinner which is very kind of them. It will be a little strange not to have all those leftovers with which to concoct many suspect looking meals, but I am sure we will survive, somehow.
Whatever you all do, and wherever you all are this year, I wish you a wonderful and happy Christmas!
