Christmas baking was somewhat curtailed today as not a can of condensed milk was available in the supermarket yesterday. But hey, we've probably already consumed enough sugar in the lead up to Christmas - last weekend I went to a Christmas dinner with friends toting along a cheesecake, a trifle and Christmas themed chocolates.
So today we did some low key cookie baking - most especially because Santa will need some sustenance on his way through our corner of the world tonight.
Last night I also whipped up a batch of these felt cookies for the food play set. Absolutely perfect if you are watching your waistline - look and play, but don't eat - maybe I should leave these out for Santa instead?
And of course, we will be leaving a few of these out for the reindeer (on the finest English china)...
...so in reality you know what I am going to be munching my way through before I head off to bed this evening...not one my favourite vegetables, but I'd better do it with a smile on my face, hadn't I, in the spirit of the season and all that.
Happy Christmas to you all!
