Today (Monday) I set aside to do the Christmas food preparations, unfortunately I only managed to do the pasties and one lot of mince pies, still that is a start.
The reason so little was done is that the pasties take so long to make. All the meat has to be chopped very finely, as does the onion and potatoes, the potatoes have to be par boiled as I wasn't cooking the pasties yet. Then the pastry made and cut out, cooled in the fridge for about an hour, even the actual making of them takes a while. Pleased that job is done now.
I had lunch while the pastry was cooling. Then finished the pasties and started the mince pies.
The remaining potato and onion I made into soup.
The weekly challenge on UKScrappers this week was to scrap a preparation so my Christmas Fare was perfect.
My As seen for today just had to be the sifted flour making a pointed hat in my food mixer.
Today I am thankful for getting another thing crossed of my Christmas preparation list.
