Homemade Lamb Dhansak curry tonight    

It's a change to have something that is not Christmas related (although the leftover veg soup continues to be a hit)

The 'kids' pretty much cleared us out of sweets, chocolates, crisps, cake etc this year whereas other years I have had to send them away with piles of the stuff - did I get the amounts right this year or were they greedier than usual?

I must admit to missing having snacks and sweet stuff around though  
At least it will help to get rid of the extra pounds that have crept back on.

There's a recurring theme here   I'm using up the last of the veggies in the salad drawers and making veggie curry tonight.

I don't have much of a sweet tooth, but we were awash with home baking. I baked, Fiona baked the most glorious gluten free (uses ground almonds) mandarin cake with Green and Black's chocolate, Jamie made a huge dumpling, and that was before the chocolates and biscuit tins appeared.

I want simple, plain food, again    I want oatcakes and baked spuds and soup and bread.

We really are spoiled, aren't we ?
