With the side view theme being ‘Twas The Week Before Christmas, this stirring tale comes to you as my first venture into Foodie blogging. Do you think I should switch to those?
mas, and all through
the house Not a creature
was stirring, except for my
spouse; She had Christmas
cake-mix put into a bowl,
In stirring it up she applied heart
and soul; From Delia Smith was the
recipe tried, With some variations on
what went inside: In absence of brandy,
thought sherry would do;
Replacing molasses with syrup tried, too;
And then, in the oven, a four-hour cook
Was better in three, in her own cooking-book;
A needle-test proved that her judgment was right –
An absence of goo was a most pleasing sight!
She reasoned that not to have checked would be wronger–
It would have got burnt if left in for much longer
So now just
has still got
to come –
season that icing with rum!
