The festive celebrations are happening everywhere and Friday night we had one on our own. 

Pre-dinner nibbles. Ham & pineapple on toothpicks and a cheese log with crackers. Both were very nice. 

After dinner antics. Hubby watching on as D2 takes photos for Nan. Pop wasn't overly keen.

This novel idea for a gift Christmas tree was made for our Quilters Christmas breakup. Everyone went home with 3 fat quarters for a future project. 

Cheese Fruit Log
¼ cup pistachio nuts
250g cream cheese
¼ cup finely chopped dried apricots
3 spring onion, finely chopped
¼ cup sun-dried tomatoes finely chopped
¼ cup finely chopped parsley
Pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 200 deg C and roast
nuts for 5 minutes. Cool and finely chop.
Beat the cream cheese until smooth. Fold
in apricots, onions, tomatoes and pepper.
Form mixture into a log and roll in combined
nuts and parsley. Wrap in plastic wrap and
refrigerate until firm.
Serve with cracker biscuits.

This will be my last blog for a few weeks. Hubby and I are off on holiday tomorrow. I trust you all have a wonderful Christmas and we will catch up here in the New Year...Dot
