Merry Christmas

I’m a day late! But we had an awesome Christmas Day, very relaxed and laid back and the first ever year I didn’t have turkey or ham! (I did cook turkey for the kids though)..

Although I didn’t intend to cook a 1940s Christmas Dinner it unintentionally became one….pretty much everything on my plate was fresh veggies!

I’m not sure whether folk cooked mince pies BUT I couldn’t resist making up the mixture so I’ll be making a ration shortcrust pastry tomorrow- can’t wait for that 🙂

Hope everyone had a super day and wishing you much joy and happiness in 2012

Not sure why it was such fun stabbing parsnips!

  1. I’m so delighted! My family is exploring living on rationing for a year as our New Year resolution (UK circa 1945 rationing) and I stumbled on your site while planning the week’s menus. I look forward to following your blog!

  3. You look lovely Carolyn and also very happy 🙂 I’ve started on my own weight loss quest (using menus from a 1940s nutritionist); we’ll see how we go. Take care and Happy New Year to you and your family. I’m sure 212 wil be a great one 🙂
