I hope everyone had a wonderful thingymas!?? Mine was pretty quiet but lovely and I made every muscle in my body ache from hours on my brother's Wii. I rock at bowling - if only I was that good in real life. Anyway it's all over for another year and I'm enjoying my week off work and looking forward to going out and getting rat arsed tomorrow night!! YAY.
Now onto the important stuff - the food pics. Strap yourselves in people - I got lots'o'pics for ya.
My mum does the best roasties ever. Ever.
Onto boxing day - Me & mum did a buffet for boxing day and my bro and his girlfriend arrived. One important component was a chocolate yule log. You cannot have christmas without a yule log (or poo log as me & my bro still call it) and this year was the first year I had to make it. It was aweseome!! I used the basic chocolate recipe from VCTOtW, and the same frosting I used for my dad's birthday cake. It was a bit of a mess when I rolled it but luckily, frosting covers a multitude of sins.
With soya cream.....
Me & mum made some mince pies, that we got the recipe for out the paper. they had vegan custard in underneath the mincemeat. Unfortunately they were a bit of a fail and bubbled all over the place. Whatta mess! However, they still tasted pretty good.
This is the boxing day spread - I scrubbed out the omni food - hehe.
One of my pressies - some vegan white choccy - YAY! I feel like I need to put it to good use in some muffins or something! I'll keep you posted.
Last night I had my girlies over for dinner and we had chilli (I made it so that I could get my notes right as I'm putting the recipe in my zine) ....
