My First Ever Yorkshire Puddings, NYD 2011

My lovely mother-in-law, pictured here serving up dinner, taught me how to make Yorkshire puddings this year when we were up north for New Year's.  She is a very good teacher, and also has an amazing gas cooker with 8 burners on the stove.  I am very jealous of her stove.  Apparently the key to good Yorkshire puddings is having a northern mother-in-law.

A Very Pagan Christmas

Here are some photos from our Christmas dinner, and a few from Boxing Day. We spent the holiday at our friend's house in east London and it was absolutely magical.

Me and Mr. Bare Necessities have been hibernating since my last post, but I assure you there is a camera full of pictures and there will be new posts very soon.  Don't give up hope, Spring is here and we are shaking the cookie crumbs from our skirts and emerging into the daylight.
