Happy Christmas Eve.

A little bit of home.  The smell of baking mince pies today transported me back to the Yuletides of my childhood.  Classic, home-cooked Christmas goodness, helped along by James Robertson's mincemeat - the last jar in my local supermarket.  I could have been in my mother's kitchen.
Wishing the simple joys of Christmas to you all.

We are huge fans of mince pies here in New Zealand and last night Mum made the Christmas pud drowned in brandy sauce. Love it!

Isn't that mincemeat beautiful just in the jar there? (some credit must be given to the photographer, I think!)

ALW: I put Cognac in Vinomaker's mince pies.

Phlegmmy: It is rather attractive, isn't it? Very rich looking.
