    Following on from Maireads thread about starting making her christmas cards.
    I think today is the day that all us "serious" cooks put our sprouts on for Christmas.
    Always best to do before the end of July.

    My plants don't have sprouts on yet. Should I buy some as a back up just in case?

    Better to be safe than eating hard sprouts this christmas. Or i could put some extra on for you now and post them , a little bit of rough handling by the postie will make no difference.

    but, but, but... I thought this is when you started your Christmas cakes!

    Speaking of cakes in the UK manner... the wedding that we had to attend...the parents of the bride are British. The mother made a traditional fruitcake for a nephew's birthday (that coincided with the wedding time...).

    Ya'll really make little kids eat that stuff on their birthdays?
