    Originally they wouldd have been minced meat with a little bit of dried fruit added. Now it is dried fruit and spices but probably contain suet. That stuff you hate too...lol

    Thanks Fuzz

    I hope you have a wonderful Christmas

    I don't care for minced meat pie either - my Dad loved them & my Mom would make many.

    You can still buy mince meat for pies in a can same as many other pie fillers.

    Enjoy and Merry Christmas to all.

    I mentioned to my Mother today that if it came to it I could always do cheats roast potatoes in the deep fat fryer instead, her face told me that it would not be acceptable

    Looking forward to chips on boxing day with all the left overs and just me and the three children doing what we want when we want

    Christmas Eve day time, we are spending at the homeless shelter In Bath and then on to Midnight Mass. I'm not overly religious but the Vicar Is one of those young, trendy, groovy type men of the cloth and It'll be a lot of fun also.
    Christmas day, holed up Indoors with Peter eating, watching TV and doing what we feel like.... Same Boxing Day... rest of week down to Brighton and various relatives for visits.
    I like midnight mass but babysitters are scarce on Christmas eve sadly.

    We will have a flying visit from my sis on Christmas Day too, normally we'd all be together as one much bigger family but her and her boys are off to New York on Boxing day so they leave Cornwall on Christmas Day afternoon to get to Heathrow on time.

    Tradition In our family for Bubble and Squeek with Mash and cold meat and pickles on Boxing Day. Everything gets thrown In the Bubble Including left over Yorkshire puds... have to say this Is my most favourite meals of Christmas.

    I'm headed in a southern direction and may drift a little eastward to reach the low desert. The high desert (Mojave) is a little cold this time of year. No real plans - just wandrin. If I miss the lights, I could end up in Las Vegas, or it could be San Diego. Who knows, at this point.
