For my son's tenth birthday outing to see The Force Awakens tomorrow. Took a lot of work, but I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out! :-)

Okay, it's getting on towards Christmas and I spent a happy hour or so yesterday going through recipes for mincemeat, Christmas cake and Christmas pudding and adding the ingredients to my shopping list for my online Tesco order today.

Only to find that Tesco apparently do not have *any* currants. Not sold out or waiting for stock. They just don't have them.

And this at six weeks to Christmas!

Well, I guess I'll be getting my 750g of currants elsewhere then!

ETA: No candied peel either! This is ridiculous!

I just have to share how incredibly yummy peach and plum crumble is when made from Marks and Spencers' 'perfectly ripe' fruit (on offer at the moment 'cos it's in season) and a basic crumble topping combined with crumbs from homemade cereal bars that got a little overcooked and had to be scraped out of the baking tray in bits. I've been enjoying the bits of those cereal bars anyway, but there were some bits that were just too small, so I've been saving those to make a crumble, and golly, this was gorgeous!

Which is fantastic, because there are now three more two-person crumbles in the freezer! :-)

Also? Butternut squash soup from the freezer served with bacon butties? To die for.

I really, really enjoyed my dinner tonight, and even more so because I wasn't really looking forward to it that much! :-)

P.S. Talking about butternut squashes, we finally have two fruits growing in the garden! One is kind of round, so like half a squash, and the other is bent into an L-shape, but I've raised them on a couple of old cooling racks (I have loads) so they don't rot and they seem to be ripening nicely!!! :-)
