Yes Suzanne. I've started to fatten up the guinea pigs and have been furiously scouting out for suitable roadkill.

Instead of Christmas puddings (it's too hot over here) I'llbe preparing wombat waffles....great with brandy sauce

:-D :-D

Hope you enjoy Christmas.

Apparently said mincemeat is VERY short dated. Will add it to my jar that I found in the cupboard when I had a clear out last week, along with last years Christmad pudd.

A good shot of brandy will sort them all out. So I am told.

May have to test the brandy ..... just to make sure ;-) :-D
