Pictures from a domestic goddess.... and her son!

Last day of work for nearly a week! Yipee!
This afternoon I've emptied the basket of ironing although it really won't stay empty for long but at least I should be able to leave it for a couple of days!
Then Clark and I did some cooking,
Mince pies and with the left over pastry we made a couple of tarts. Clark did all the rolling and I did all the milking and spooning in of mincemeat.
We did cheat and use ready to roll puff pastry mainly because puff pastry is so time consuming to make from scratch and I really couldn't do with faffing about.

I'm planning to use this big tart next Saturday when my friend with eleven children are coming to tea

A smaller one for us

A picture of Clark at the end of the baking session!
Why are boys so messy? 


  1. Have just put the oven on here and come to the computer to look for a couple of recipes - then got distracted mooching around blogs! Glad to see Clark is enjoying the fun in the kitchen... Have a great Christmas xx

    1. Thanks Morgan x browsing blogs can be distracting!

  2. Wow, lots of yummy treats. Emma always looks like that after baking :) x

  3. That's how I look after baking, I always forget my apron. Your pies look great.

  4. Wishing you and your lovely family a wonderful Christmas, Bridget.
