Christmas Baking


I have had a very slow month and have accomplished not much at all, but the last week I have realised that it's nearly Christmas and I need to get off my butt and doing some making! I have presents started, nearly finished and already given. Today the boy and I did some the baking. The start of our baking I hope. Christmas isn't Christmas if I don't make gingerbread and there are a few other things I have been thinking about making. The above pic is fruit mince pies (because my hubby loves them) and Christmas biscuits - with orange rind in them (because the little man loves cutters). They are both pretty yummy and will be eaten by us and given as gifts.

And just a note of how amazing I am (lol) I did baking AND have managed to make dinner. I feel pretty clever!

Carrots


Pickings from our garden. We planted baby carrots and they are reaching a good size now. The boy picked a tiny one while I wasn't looking, but they were all delicious!
