christmas puddings 2012

 fruit soaking in brandy, ready to be pudding-ed

Flashback to 2010 when my mother-in-law was here from the UK and helped me make her mother's Christmas puddings...

Flash forward to my 2012 helper (above!)...

And my husband helped stir because once you put in the breadcrumbs, suet, eggs, sugar, candied citrus peel, currants, golden raisins, raisins, spices, and brandy, it is stiff stuff!

Well, the puddings are made and brewing in the basement till Christmas and we already have two sets of plans for those puppies.

And now I'm being summoned for a game of pirate chutes and ladders, so me pretties, I must depart.
