It’s nearly Christmas, which means it’s time to start indulging. I mean, I started a few months back, but that’s just the way I roll. So for those who haven’t already begun, then this pavlova is a good place to start. And whilst it may look like it requires quite a lot of effort, in actual fact, it’s a pretty easy festive dessert to make!
As a lone boiled vegetable I’d be lying if I said I loved brussel sprouts. I find them pretty tasteless and bland, however when mixed with a few extra ingredients they somehow transform into a real favourite of mine. You may see this as masking the flavour, however I see it more as enhancing these little green balls into a festive dish that everyone will love and enjoy.
Brussel Sprouts… the vegetable that so many hate, yet they still appear on most tables over the festive period. Now I can’t say I’m a massive fan of the plain boiled sprout. I mean I would eat boiled sprouts out of sheer politeness, but I’d be lying if I said I enjoy them. I’m sorry to all the sprout lovers that I am bound to offend, but I’m afraid to say that plain boiled sprouts are just well, plain boring!
December is finally here, and with that is the perfect excuse to drink crazy amounts of mulled wine without being judged. Well that’s what I like to tell myself when I’m half way through my fifth glass and seriously contemplating a sixth. Maybe even a seventh. Well they don’t say tis the season to be jolly for nothing do they?
