Well my pre-Christmas preparations have certainly been getting the best of my schedule. This morning I’ve been shopping, simmering stock, baking panettone and assembling a rather complex gingerbread interpretation of our house (a special request from elves 1 and 2). So it’s been a rather busy morning. I hope for better this afternoon. If not the final panettone post will go up tomorrow. Best of luck to all of you out there in holiday mode!
