The Christmas Rhythm
I have just finished watching a 'Nigella's Christmas Kitchen'. Only Nigella can get you feeling sexy while you bake. Her ingredients, her passion for every little inch of what she creates. So, the kitchen is abuzz with bread baking, orange covered cacao treats and another Christmas cake. Brogan made two last week for Gran and Grandpa. This time it's Nigella's chocolate fruit Christmas cake. At least that one I can put raw Cacao powder into it.
Our Christmas tree is full with decorations the children and I made. We have put our fairy lights onto the veranda and once those go up, the whole house feels wrapped up for Christmas. We picked bay leaf and rosemary sprigs to hang up around the home. Cinnamon and orange rings are hanging in garlands on the fire places. Berries are ripe for the picking... Its truly impossible to tame my traditional heart at this time of year. I too hope for some peaceful and reflective moments as I go about this Season.
Now how nice would it be if I could have you all for tea~!
Love to you
