Oh joy. After several years of comments, reminders, suggestions and telekinetic mind control, I got the Christmas present I always wanted. Santa (sorry I mean the Mrs, for those of you cynics who no longer believe a big hairy man with large red balls tries to get down your chimney every year) delivered. A Magimix.

2013 Odds and Ends
First off, joke of the year:
Why did the baker have smelly hands?
Butternut Squash and Caramelized Pecan Nut Wellington
The continuing adventures of trying to find my festive mojo…
After making a Pork Wellington last week I thought I would produce a vegetarian version. Either the pork or this one are good alternatives to the usual Christmas fayre.
Just spent a day Christmas shopping. Whilst lying in bed reading the news on the (crappy) Samsung tablet (why didn’t I get an i-Pad) it suddenly dawned on me that if I didn’t get off my arse and go shopping today then I wasn’t going to get another chance. And that wouldn’t do. A lot of disappointed sproglets, and don’t even get me started on the wife’s reaction.
So I went right on in to town. Battled the hoards. The squealing brats with their uncouth parents smoking fags and swearing at each other. Sulky youths trudging around. But I did it. I purchased things for about 10 people. It is done. No more! And to celebrate I created this sumptious creation – courtesy of my favourite Hairy Bikers!
The easiest thing you will make this year. And, in this blogger’s opinion, the tastiest. Sometimes the simple stuff is the best.
