  1. Merry Christmas to you too, Lisa! ;-)


    • Greetings to you too, Kim! I hope you noticed my Don Quixote from Salamanca there amongst the tinsel – happy travels:)


  2. It’s not Christmas here until tomorrow, but happy Christmas to you.


    • Thanks Richard – I love your reminder that we are connected through our love of books and reading despite huge time differences around the globe. The magic of the internet again!


  3. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, Lisa!
    Mmmmm… those pies look delicious!
    We are having a truly white Christmas here… although I could go with the red as well, of course!! :))


    • Hi Irene,
      From the media, we know that Europe is in the icy grip of an especially cold winter and parts of Australia are devastated by severe floods. My Christmas wish is for everyone to get home safely and enjoy the day with loved ones.


  4. Good grief, that first picture makes me want a pavlova.


    • Merry Xmas Deane, I hope you enjoy it in your new home!
      That Xmas trifle’s very red, isn’t it! A new recipe, but I have the traditional Christmas pudding as well, made to Meredith’s Mother’s recipe back on Cup Day in November. (I never met Meredith’s mother, but I’ve been making her pud for thirty years.) I have just now put it into the crock-pot to steam itself ready for lunch…
      The shortbreads are made to Margaret Fulton’s recipe. Merry Xmas to Australia’s Queen of Cuisine wherever she may be – I wonder how many other families are sitting down to turkey cooked to her methods today?


      • Red, yes, and white; it was the strawberries against the cream that made me think, dang, I want a pav. Christmas day hasn’t arrived here yet, but I already know what we’re having in place of pudding: a pumpkin pie and an apple pie. The apple pie is cooling outside in the workshed among the saws and nails.


  5. Looks good and Merry Christmas to all.



    • Merry Christmas, Meg! I hope all is well in your part of Australia!
