The Christmas Recipe Roundup

That's it, I'm done cooking for you lot for the year - it's time for me to take a break and put my feet up while mainlining Baileys Biscotti and mince pies.  Real work has also finished so I am going to spend the next week sleeping, reading, watching the tellybox and possible eating and drinking a few choice morsels.  I shall not be getting up at stupid o'clock and spending both hours in the car and the GDP of a small African nation on diesel.  Sadly, the Hubs is working for almost all of the holidays but he is off on Christmas Day for which I am thankful and because I am a nice wife, I am cooking his favourite dinner on Christmas Eve... Chicken and Pea Risotto.  He's a man of simple yet refined tastes!

So, in case you missed any of the recipes, here's a roundup of this and last year's festive food

Boozy Glazed Baked Ham
Cheesy Star Biscuits
Hasselback Potatoes
Spectacular Sprouts
Three Ways with Stuffing

Boozy Yule Log
Christmas Snowflake Cake
Chocolate Meringues (I did a Mocha version this year which are gorgeous)
Festive Star Bar
Lemon Bars
Luscious Lemon Cake
Pear Gingerbread
Santa Butter Cookies

Remember, it's perfectly acceptable to have a selection box for breakfast once you eat all your vegetables at dinner...  have a lovely Christmas and New Year
