Christmas tree shaped Tortillas (Tesco) with salsa today, and…
Bendicks mints with Morrison’s Gianduiotti.
Festive recipe: Cranberry Orange Ginger Sauce
Chocolate Truffles (rawish): Blend or food process up two handfuls of mixed nuts and 2 handfuls of raisins with a heaped teaspoon of cocoa. Roll the mix into little balls. We then put them in the freezer for ten minutes while we melted the white and dark chocolate in bain Maries. This meant the chocolate set really quickly when spooned onto the cold puddings rather than running everywhere.
So: spoon the melted chocolate over the top and decorate with pumpkin seeds and chopped dried cranberry. Yum!
They are now nestled happily in the Christmas Dish 🙂
Recipe for today: mini pizza bites
We’ve reached that pre-Christmas time when, regardless of how simple your planned festivities are, everything becomes really hectic. So: crisps on a plate. It is a festive plate though. And people are happily gobbling up their Tesco salt and vinegar twists as happily as they gobbled down the fancier snacks 🙂 Moral of the crisps on a plate? Don’t try too hard, don’t tire yourself out: enjoy Christmas.
Take a little walk on the beach. Breathe. Eat some crisps.
Today’s recipe: Gluten Free Mini Chocolate Yule Logs
Jameson’s Raspberry and Peppermint Ruffles from Home Bargains, as is the squirrel nut bowl, as is the amazing bargain of a vegan selection box for 99p below.
Eat Real Quinoa Corn Puffs, white Cheddar flavour, and possibly the cheesiest tasting food we’ve ever had! We had to check the bag again to make sure a terrible mistake hadn’t been made but there was the Vegan Society Logo nestled securely in the corner 🙂 There’s some Violife Cheese cubes in there as well.
Festive recipe: White Hot Chocolate from Cat
Oh, and our order came from Green Bay. There’s a lot of cheese in there too!
Except on the dress of a Faery Queen… So (one version) of the saying goes. How completely incorrect! Look how they demonstrate the perfect balance of pre-Christmas treats right there on the Christmas dish 😉
Chocolate truffles dressed up as Brussels sprouts from Asda alongside Fox’s Glacier Mints.
These Christmas Dish posts are evolving. Something homemade may even appear at some point, but for just now we’re adding one of our festive recipes each day. Today: Vegan Bread Sauce (goes well with the sprouts).
