It has been quite a year and I'm thoroughly looking forward to 2009. I can't believe it's here already. We have quite a few plans in the pipeline, starting with this...
We're sorely tempted to get machinery in - and by sorely I mean, OUCH me back!!
But it's a steep bit of wall which we intend to cut a footpath into. Not even a bobcat would be safe up on the ledge. Thank goodness we only have to do it once!
Christmas was a quiet occasion, but we did have some wonderful meals with family. Nothing like a bit of salad and cold meat to pass the afternoon away. It's amazing what you can knock together if you have a few staples in the pantry.
The only thing I changed on the recipe, was to beef up the butter to 125 grams. They turned out great! I also used raisins for the buttons.
Despite the fact I'm thoroughly looking forward to 2009, I'm also looking forward to seeing what you're all getting up to this year too. Have a safe and happy holiday.
