The new year

A huge apology for not being around as much of late. So many things have kept me away from blogging. My old oven dying and having to learn the new one. The pressure cooker also died, but now have a you beaut electric one, which I am also learning about.

Christmas was at our house this year and I did the full formal Christmas dinner, made special by using Ron's fabulous Apricot glaze on the turkey. Thank you The Merlin's Menu blog.

Now it is full steam ahead, getting ready for my 60th birthday party, which is themed 60's. Did a test run on the marque yesterday, and it will fit where we want it to go. Guest invites have been sent, food organised, tablecloths, plates, cutlery all got. I will be making my own cake, but keeping the design and flavour secret.
Photo of Chocolate and blackberry Torte made yesterday. Chocolate mouse at the bottom, blackberry compote and mascapone in the middle and fresh cream and a crumbled Flake on the top.
Wishing you all a properous NEW YEAR.
