One Christmas Eve Eve, I cooked as Mum was cooking on Christmas Day. I made Tomato Tart Tartin with Goats Cheese (above).
Above are my 3 cheese and onion muffins, delicious!!!
Above is Ina Garten's warm Artichoke Salad it was to die for
And above is Jamie Olivers Winter Root Coleslaw, they didnt have a mandolin or food processor so I had to grate everything ......... gggrrrrr!!!!
In the summer we went to Spain and picked up some cured iberico ham and pork loin which I froze and kept for Christmas and served up with some North Yorshire Roasted Belly Pork.
For dessert we had oranges in Marsala and I made a mincemeat and marsala ice cream which I forgot to photograph!!
There are some great Cafe's in Masham and above is a Masham Brekky that my hubby had, all the ingredients and locally grown, the sausage and bacon were lovely ..... so he said, I had mushrooms on toast which were delicious.
On the Thursday after Christmas we went to Harrogate and had brunch in Betty's Tearooms Mum and I had eggs benedict on toasted English muffins and the most wonderful tea. Dad and Bob of course had the full English and it was all very delicious; though I have to say that I thought the Masham brekky was better value for money - but you have to do Betty's once in a while. Next time we will just have afternoon tea.
On Boxing Day it is tradition for the Hunt to meet in the market square with all the hounds and horses.
Below is one of our favourite shops in Masham, though we didnt go in this time!!
Today is New Years Day and we are waiting for my daughter and her boyfriend Amir to arrive. I have been busy in the kitchen!!
3 Cheese and Onion Muffins - becoming a firm family favourite!!
