1 I’ve spent much of today making a delicious new dessert for the upcoming all-together-family day just after Christmas. I would have made the great family favourite, Chocolate Amaretti Torte but cannot use alcohol in anything this holiday. Then I read a similar recipe that uses coffee in place of the brandy and makes the whole thing as a loaf to slice so I have done a mix-and-match on both recipes to make my own (I’ll post it soon) and it now joins the other treats in the freezer. Let’s hope it works. I’ll let you know at the end of the month.
2 While I’ve been busy with that and trying to practise The Entertainer on the piano ( My target is to play that by Christmas!) the lovely Mr S has been putting the paintings back on the walls in the newly decorated sitting room.
3 Driving home from the shops this evening, I snatched a moving photo of a Christmas tree all lit up in a window.
