No. 40 - December 2005

This will be the last newsletter for 2005. As usual I'll be taking a break, so the next newsletter won't be sent out until  the 1st week in February.  This year has seen a substantial increase in visitors to the site, despite the technical difficulties we experienced earlier in the year and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you  for your support during 2005 and hopefully, your continued support for 2006.  Seasons Greetings and very best wishes for a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year.


Happy Cooking !

It's Party Time!

For many of us, December sees the beginning of the party season when friends and family get together in intimate and large gatherings. If you can afford to spend a few hours the day before for shopping and preparation, you can throw a party to rival any.

Same old Story?

Fancy a change this year? There are so many wonderful alternatives. How about a traditional roast goose or venison? And what if you're catering for vegetarians? We've got lots of recipes  for starters, main courses, side dishes and desserts as well as other seasonal ideas for drinks and home made edible gifts.

Cheers Mi'dears

With all that food in mind, let's not forget about the drink. Champagne is always nice at festivities,  but why not try some other traditional drinks such as Christmas Wassail or buttered rum. And there's always cocktails!
