Today even though its not nearly Christmas, we had Rudolph Nutella Toast. We have builders in just now redoing the underfloor heating in the kitchen. It is hell. I know people have to put up with A LOT worse, and I need perspective! But it has been quite painful…..and seems to have gone on for months…..and months….and months. Should be fully up and running for summer!
The kids have not complained too much – mainly because:
1) They aren’t paying the equivalent of the African national debt to replace something as boring as pipes under the floor.
2) They care not a jot about 3 inches of dust on everything 5 minutes after IT HAS JUST BEEN CLEANED.
3) The usual annual quota of junk food in our house has been consumed in the space of a couple of weeks.
As well as lots of take-aways, we have eaten a lot of toast this month. So here is a little festive toast and nutella treat to start getting you in the christmas spirit….
A slice of toast
1/2 a curly wurly
2 slices of banana
1 strawberry or raspberry
Spread generous amounts of nutella over the toast. Take a skewer and stab the top to make holes for the antlers.
Snip the curly wurly into 4 pieces, with a few trimmings to make them look antlerish.
Stick them in the skewered holes. Add banana eyes. Blueberry pupils. And Rudolphs red strawberry nose.
And now in the spirit of cheesy christmas crackers……..What do you call a reindeer with no eyes ?….As demonstrated by Abbi…..
Sorry. No excuse for that. Hope everyones christmas preparations are going better than mine!
