Well, previously our bird was smaller than that and a lot more!!  But this is just a frozen one from Tesco this year.    And thanks for all your lovely comments regarding the cake and cookies!!  Can't believe it's almost a week already!
Christmas turkey for lunch this year?  I think it's a small ostrich!!!!   Just getting a frozen one from Tesco this year (previously, a friend has been down to Wales to buy a free-range one direct from the farmer...  but the farmer is winding down his business, apparently).  Anyway, so I phoned Steve from the shop to say shall I get the ones that are between 5kg and 6.9kg in weight and are £21?  It says they serve between 11 and 14 people.  There will be 9 of us (7...
Coooeeeeee!!!   So, here we are, post-Bar Mitzvah!  WHAT A WEEKEND!!   My feet are still killing me!  LOL!!     So, I promised pics as soon as possible....   Here are some of the 140 name place cookies.  Vanilla butter cookies and royal icing decoration.     And The Cake!     I actually don't have any pics of me yet!  But as soon as I get some, I promise I'll find a decent one to show you!!
Hi guys!   Cookies took almost as long to bag and tie as they did to decorate.  Can't thank my mum and aunt enough - they were here for HOURS doing them whilst hubby and I cleaned and tidied house.  Still so much more to do - and I have to get it all done by midday as my manicurist had to change my appt (I said it would be OK as I thought I'd be more organised than I actually am!!!)  Won't be able to do much housework once my fingers and toes have been prettified!...
Just popping in to say hi!   No time to read the 100+ messages I've missed, I'm afraid.  But thought I'd give you a quick update.   The name place cookies are all done.  It took SO, SO, SOOOOO much longer than I thought (these things usually do) and then the final straw was that the cello bags I bought don't fit.  They're such a snug fit and as they don't have a gusset I simply can't get the cookies in the bag! AGGHHHHH!  Fortunately I have a friend who sells...
I'm sooo lucky with my MIL.  She really does treat me like a daughter.  We do get on so well and I really love her.     So, this evening I've been baking the cookies which I'm going to decorate & personalise to use instead of name place cards at my son's Bar Mitzvah next weekend.  I made 2 batches of cookie dough and used a half batch I had in the freezer.  I got 133 cookies.  I need 139!  Typical!!!!  LOL!!!   I'm going to make a small batch now (a third of a...
Oooh - that's fabulous!!! Yeah - mainly in my mouth!  I love it sooo much and find it hard to resist! Pretty cake, Jo.  And gorgeous tree!!!
