Home made Christmas.
Hi Team TOMM'ers
Each Christmas for my family i make a home made food hamper for them, full of goodies the whole family can share. All home made. Jam pickled onions, red onion marmalade, Christmas pudding, christmas cake. (a mini one) mince pies, and maybe some pickled eggs for those who like them. We keep our own chickens so sometimes end up with a mound of eggs. The chickens (my girls) are all ex bat hens that come to retire with me and life their life out here in freedom. I dress up the jars and puddings etc by wrapping them in gingham and pretty ribbons, and put them all in a lovely crate. It may work out a little more expensive, but i know the family appreciate it. And i make and extra one to raffle off for charity! What home made goodies to you make for your family? 😉
So I am not reallys sure its homemade but we dont really buy gifts except for the only daughter/grandchild. We all get together and play games(we get a few new ones every year) and we cook and hang out all day. We just really try to enjoy each other. We are not religious but we lived far away from each other for over 25 years, plus its a great time for me to sneak some of those homemade recipes away from my Father in Law!
