living the dream with Charlie and Thandi and chirping all the way back to the nest.

Christmas Cookie and Craft Beer Swop

…isn’t that alliteration impressive, my English teacher would be impressed!

Ok, so last night Charlie and I hosted a (soon-to-be-annual) Swop. The book club girls all brought 6 packets of biscuits, and then each of us went home with 6 assorted packets; and the boys each brought a 6 pack of craft beer, and again, each went home with 6 different beers to taste and enjoy!

It was great! Everybody went to so much trouble! The biscuits were beautiful! I made ginger bread hoses, filled with sweeties, and with a roof encrusted with chocolate coated popping candy, and candy floss smoke rising out a chimney. Check it out!

So we sat around the table, sharing some good food, memories and some wine. A great start to the Christmas season!
