Just the One?

I know I don’t need to say this, especially to the UK readers, but you can tell it’s now the 6th November as all the Christmas Adverts have started in earnest!  I have to say, so far my favourite is the Marks & Spencers Advert, and no, sadly this is not a paid for post! (But M&S if you are reading this, I am open to offers 🙂 )

As regular readers of the blog will know, the cake has been made, and been fed, the marzipan and mincemeat are done, and I am holding with tradition and waiting for stir up Sunday before making the Christmas Pudding.

I have a little bit of an obsession with Limoncello at the moment.  I found a bottle of it in the freezer recently and have been using it in recipes that call for alcohol to be added.  As the bottle is running low, and we have a spare bottle of Vodka in the Pantry, (I know a spare bottle of Vodka, how decadent!) I have decided to make my own.  I can’t imagine it will be too dissimilar to sloe gin in the making, and I have a feeling it’s is going to be cheaper than buying another bottle from the supermarket!

I got the instructions from the BBC Good Food site, who do suggest that it would make a great gift to give at Christmas.  Rather than give as a gift, we are going to share it over the festive season with home made mince pies and other delicious homemade Christmas treats that will be emerging from the Muddy Kitchen Floor kitchen!

Bottoms Up!!
