A Retro Xmas Pud : )

Hey I found a fun Christmas recipe recently on the fabulous rosalilium blog (www.rosalilium.com) written by one of her guest bloggers ,the lovely Kathryn,writer of the equally awesome blog Kat got the cream( katgotthecream.blogspot.com). You really have to check out both their blogs if like me you love retro and vintage and pretty things. 🙂
Anyway I thought I would have a go at Kathryns Easy Peasy Retro Xmas Pud.
All you need for this 70s inspired pudding is:

1 packet of choc chip cookies
Sweet Sherry ( I used amaretto as couldn’t locate any sherry!)
small carton thick cream
small carton creme fraiche
Sprinkles to decorate ( I also used choc chips)
a retro christmas ornament( optional)

Mmmm spinkles
Mmmm spinkles

The general idea is to dip each cookie in the sherry,fix together with the cream and creme fraiche mixture,cover entirely with the rest of the cream and creme fraiche mixture,put in the fridge for a couple of hours, decorate with sprinkles and serve.

A December Wknd.

On saturday i went to lunch with the girls.One of my friends is getting married in May so we had a good gossip about that.

We had lunch in the Emorium.Love these glittery disco ball stylie lights.

We had a good look round the shops and enjoyed the festive displays.
