Merry Christmas, to all of you who celebrate it. Us, not so much. We did tag-team in the kitchen to prepare an awesome dinner last night. The highlight was Seared Beef with Sweet Chilli Caramel Sauce from this month’s Delicious magazine. (That sauce is AMAZING. The recipe also makes about 50 times more than you need for the amount of meat, so we’re trying to figure out what else to do with it.) We also had sauteed Savoy cabbage and roast vegetables. For tipple, I made us a jug of Jamie Oliver’s “Raspberry & Ginger Fizz” (also from Delicious). Basically, you muddle a handful of mint, two handfuls of raspberries, a tablespoon of sugar, and a big piece of ginger in a jug, then top with ice, 8 shots of vodka, and ginger beer. Delicious!

Anyway, after a lovely lie-in this morning we’re both in full-on hermit mode. The Snook is off raiding in Azeroth, while I plan on making some serious progress on St. Brigid. I’ve got Skype on if any of the family feel like saying hello…
