mince-pie

The enemy has broken through my defences. My husband is making mince pies IN OUR HOUSE.

Even now he’s cutting out treacherous little pastry circles and putting them in a tin.

The mince meat is mixed and ready to be scooped into it’s new buttery home.

The stench of candied peel is hanging in the air.

Soon they’ll go in the oven and the WHOLE HOUSE will reek of mince-pies-of-doom!

Help!  Anyone!  SAVE ME!

    HA! I just got my partner some mince pies from a rather fancy shop..he’s like “tests” all kinds of different ones. The supermarket ones (different supermarkets), the high end ones…so far, not really feeling it.

    That photo of the dog is hilarious though. I might have to steal that;)

    At least he’s not making Christmas Pudding / Fruit Cake! Then you’d REALLY be in trouble. What I really want to know is why ASDA and Tescos don’t stock red and white candy canes. It’s a Christmas travesty! And I REALLY want store-bought eggnog, peppermint schnapps and hot buttered rum!!!! It’s bad enough having Christmas away from all my family… It’s just torture not to have my Christmas favourites! (And, yes, I did just spell that with an “ou”… Every once in awhile I actually like something English!).

      Eggnog doesn’t appear aplenty in the grocery stores there? That is terrible and warrants a trip back to the US!
