My apologies, but I'm not a recipe type cook. Recipes for me are more like jumping off points or outlines. ;)

Ahh..mucho gracias....:-D

Q, the recipe has been sent as a Word doc. Hope it makes sense!!

Its good isn't it. My mum is a great cook. Aren't all mum's? I stopped being vegetarian myself when I was about 19. I love meat and fish, but when I went to India last year I realised being vegetarian made me feel healthier, and I am hooked on chick peas, lentils, nuts, all vegetables, etc. I'm gradually eating less and less meat, although still like occasionally and I love fish.

Visitors are welcome but there might not be enough to go round!

I'll eat pretty much anything.

We're having Christmas at my sister's this year, which suits me fine as she has a swimming pool. Not sure what's for lunch, but I'm sure it will be very nice, there'll be lots of it, I'll eat too much of it, and we'll all have a good time.

I don't know - did you think of me??

I'm glad it makes sense. Just go by taste and you can't go wrong! (Famous last words...) All of mine are done and cooling down.

Phil and Kris are now attempting to make some cookies that Phil made as a child. This should prove interesting as the recipe was in metric and my kitchen is not. (Ah, conversion tables are a wonderful thing!) And, I am taking pics of the event!

Hahahahaha.....Tis the season for typos......

Well that sounds like an interesting experiment. Rumour has it that when we switched over the metric, we almost crashed an airliner full of passengers. Good luck with that !

Well tonight is the piss up for a friend's retirement. So tomorrow I will try the lasagna....

Icelandic traditions are a bit different than everyone else's. We celebrate the day before Christmas Day and have the main Christmas dinner at 6 (pm) and then after that we open our presents. Some Icelanders go to church at 6 and then have their dinner.

This year we're having smoked pork, Ptarmigan (had to look that up..) caramelized potatoes, Waldorf salad and a whole lot more that I can't remember right now. We also have a traditional bread with dinner, laufabrauĂ° (leaf bread). It's really thin and we cut out patterns in it and deep fry it.
