Countdown to Christmas: 10

It's beginning to taste a lot like Christmas.

First fruit cake out of the oven

Ripening nectarine


  1. I *love* Christmas cooking - have just spent 4 days with Mum, and came back with 3 dozen mince pies and a gingerbread house :)

    Have just worked out that lovely netting in the last photo is on your fruit tree - I've been gazing admiringly at it for far too long!

  2. mmm delish!!!
    I STILL haven't baked much yet....
    Gorgeous fruit there - such a bright red!!!

  3. I haven't even started Christmas cooking yet - gulp!

    Mine is some delicious spice biscuits which fill the house with cinnamon and cloves and definitely smell like christmas - and the recipe makes about 90 biscuits - so it's a great bake!
    and my security word says 'allike' - how true!

  4. mmmm fruit cake. that would be a positive wouldnt it!

  5. We always used to have a huge supply of rumballs and apricot balls in the fridge at Christmas!

    I see your mum also added mixed fruit to the rumballs. I only ever liked that as a child, if I hit the jackpot and found a cherry!
