The trouble with simple living is that, though it can be joyful, rich, and creative, it isn't simple. ~Doris Janzen Longacre

Good Morning to all my blog friends,

Thank you for all the lovely Christmas Wishes left on the blog, very much appreciated thank you. Lovely to have such wonderful Friends and Followers. And May I wish you all a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. Lots of presents under your tree. Even if it is a little less this year than previous years, we need to remember it's about being with our families, and friends.

The Christmas count down is nearly there, not many days and hours left. Sure the kids have it all worked out too. The menu is all done, now just to take the chooks out the freezer, get the berry trifle made. I like keeping it simple! This year we will be roasting 2 huge homegrown chickens with stuffing, roast potatoes and sweet potato, veggies. A nice salad and a platter of fresh fruit. I baked a double batch of condensed milk biscuits with a red cherry on top (under recipes) and today I am going to bake a batch of chocolate biscuits with a small block of chocolate in the centre. First time I am going to try this one. Will post the recipe and pics later.

Done a little late night shopping last night for the last few presents, now it's just the wrapping I will leave up to Aunty Tanya, she's good at that:))) It's been rather hard this year even just finding out what was on Santa's list cause it seems to change daily. But I think we got it right without breaking the bank.

Well I'll be back later with the chocolate biscuit recipe and a pic or two
see ya later
