A Christmas Baking Slideshow

Long sentences alert!
In what is rapidly becoming a tradition Blathnaid and I bake a mountain of mince pies from scratch (including making our very own mince meat). This year we threw in some gingerbread men (and women, not to mention children), sugar cookies, macaroons, pecan fingers and in spite of my bad handling of the cooking of them, some rather fabulous florentines.

This year also took some nice pictures! Hope you enjoy them.

Full of festive spirit,

Back in the new year with thoughts on e-books, kindle, the Irish trade and Black Swans!

Mince Pies, Baking & Christmas

Eoin Purcell

Christmas & the living is easy!
The office wind down is done and we had a meal last night in an absolutely wonderful restaurant called Tante Zoe’s, where we had their Christmas Dinner Menu. Definitely worth going if you have time and the inclination.

Making mince pies
I generally don’t post about things like this but I thought that seen as others have done a good deal of cooking recently, a little image of the mince pies I have been helping to cook most of the day (Blathnaid does most of the hard work) wouldn’t hurt.

I am sure I will post before Monday but just in case:

Seasons Greetings to everyone.

Still cooking,
