Favorite Christmas Things

We have been having a lot of fun this week. My kids have been learning how to make some of their favorite recipes. Coming from England a lot of our holiday food we took for granted now has to be homemade - from scratch. My cooking skills have seriously improved in the last 13 years. So this week we have been making Quiche, Sausage Roll, and Jam is still begging for Pork pies and scotch eggs. My husband still has to make a stop at a grocery store he passes on his drive home that luckily sells the few things we just HAVE to have that I can't make ...Branston Pickle etc...  We even have to buy Pickled Beets this year as we lost all our beets with the crazy heat this summer. (I know you can buy them stateside but I don't like sugar etc in mine).
SO today we had great fun decorating Gingerbread houses. Well the easy cheat way - with Graham Crackers.




Little J had fun too!



especially eating the icing.


Such a fun afternoon.
