The 5th Day and All Is Well~

On the 5th day of Christmas my true love gave to me...5 gold rings...

Ahhh...1 pair of earrings and 3 gold bangles...that counts, yes?

Our holiday season is progressing beautifully...as I trust yours is also.

Cold, rain, and some frosty mornings...so far, no snow :) But, I'm not giving up hope !

The Christmas pumpkin is holding up very well--these are the most amazing pumpkins for keeping long term, beautiful and sturdy.

This recipe I will be using on the New Years menu....

Dill and Potato Cakes~

makes about 10 to 12 cakes

2 cups self rising flour ( unbleached if possible )
3 Tbsp real butter ( organic ) softened
pinch of Sea salt
1 Tbsp finely chopped fresh dill ( or 1 teaspoon dried )
1 cup mashed potatoes-freshly made
2-3 Tbsp milk-(organic)

Preheat the oven to 450*

Stir the flour into a bowl, and add the butter, salt, and dill.
Mix in the mashed potatoes and enough milk to make a soft, pliable dough.

Roll out the dough on a well-floured surface until it is fairly thin.
Cut into neat rounds with a 3" cutter.

Grease a baking sheet, place cakes on it and bake for 20-25 minutes until risen and golden brown.

These are delicious served with most any meal, especially breakfast or brunch.

Enjoy and celebrate each day of Christmas through the 4th of January.
