Blog Every Day In May Challenge!

caldbeck 019
One of my favourite bloggers , the lovely Elizabeth at the lifestyle blog Rosaliliumhas set herself( and anyone else who would like to take part) the challenge of blogging a post a day every day in May.You can write about anything you wish and as a guideline Elizabeth has included a calendar with a different topic on every day of the month. Her idea’s include waxing lyrical about your dream holiday,your fantasy dinner party guests,your favourite blogs,your 13 year old self and even the contents of your fridge. So anyway I thought I might have a go. πŸ™‚ I think it will certainly be a challenge for me as even jotting down this piddly paragraph has taken me about 30 minutes! Or maybe it will get the creative juices flowing and there will be no stopping me……

Anyway if you fancy having a go too pop over to Rosalilium and have a gander.
See you in May πŸ˜‰

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. πŸ™‚
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.
