Christmas Menu

It's that time of the year again, where I rack my brain for a Christmas menu.

This is what I've settled on

Christmas Kisses, with a twist, they cannot be the traditional red and gold, I'll have to swap out the Cranberry Juice for some purple grape juice to fit in with the theme this year.

Cajun prawns on a bed of lettuce, and avo

Turkey stuffed with cranberry stuffing
Traditional roast lamb
Assorted veggies and roast potatoes

I'm stuck here. I was thinking a traditional Christmas cake but without the white icing. I wanted to rather soak it in van der Hum and smother it in a Bar One Chocolate Icing, decorated with glitter and icing sugar...

I'll post all the recipes on the Good Food blog, but in the meantime what do you think of the desert.

J's Time For a Rant

So Jahni did a post on stupid things people ask, pop over to her blog to see her top three,

Here are mine;

1) See what happens when you're 'naughty', babies are born: Well no, actually we weren't 'naughty', our son was planned, and took months of horrid tablets, dildo cams, being a human pin cushion, catheters being stuck into my uterus and loads of tears. But while we're on the topic, why don't you tell me what position you used to conceive, where it happened, if you enjoyed it...

2) Oh so he was early, and tiny, why do you think that is?: I planned it! Just for kicks I thought I'd wake up 4 weeks before my due date, at 1:30am and will my water to break. He was so small because I ate a special diet of dog food and lettuce leaves throughout my whole pregnancy just so that I could have a small baby. I mean really people, anybody with some common sense and even poor eyesight can see I am a petite woman. 2 + 2 really does = 4 here, there is no way my body could've possible carried a baby heavier than 3kgs, even my Dr said so!

3) So when can we expect number 2? When I'm right and ready! When are you going to develop some tact?

And a bonus...

4) Natural birth? Wasn't it sore? No, it was like prancing through a field of daisies on a warm summers afternoon. I especially like the part where his head came out.
