Right~! ! ! ! ! Turkey Bon-Bons Cooked turkey breast, stuffing (bread, fruit, cointreau! ). Place filling in pre dampened filo pastry, bind with butter, twist ends, spray with olice oil. Bake at 180 deg C for 20 mins. Serve on whole cranberry. Tie ends of bon-bons with chives when finished. This looks amazing yet is so simple. Tastes great too!

"Bomb" ... first things first: soak sultanas or berry of your choice in brandy, run (your choice) for 2 or 3 hours. Then: crush up 1 packet of chocolate biscuits , add 25g melted butter, mix well then press into pregreased round bowl. Chill in freezer. Meanwhile soften good quality vanila icecream and white 2 T golden syrup into it. Add soaked fruit to softened icecream and pour into biscuit base. Frzze for a few ors or until truely set. Tip upside down onto platter for serving then slice with sharp knife - easy, yet divine

I'm thinking about getting cuttings getting them to take root and them growing them in old bakedbean tins which I'll cover etc and giving them as gifts. Last year I bought small white dishes at Farmers (end of lines) for about $1. 50 each and made my wicked boozey pate recipe and gave that to my friends.

I'm already getting organised for Christmas Each week I've put $10 onto a PaknSave christmas card so I've already for $250 for food/grog at Christmas. I've also bought my two toddlers mickeymouse/winnie the pooh sleeping bags off here on TM. Am getting a dolls house, will paint it up etc so am slowly building up a collection of presents. My teenagers will toiletries that I buy here and there during the year when on special and get money (their favourite! )The trick to a stress free Christmas is being organised don't you think?
