Few!!! what an ordeal to post.
Can you smell the PUDDING
it smell deeeelicccccous The whole has smells puddingy... get the drift.
Granny had her 3 precious girls over on Saturday to make the pudding.
Last year on Christmas day, she was told by her grandson that she needs to teach Abbey, her grand
daughter how to make the the pudding in case Granny dies.... ha ha... They love that pudding so much Granny thought they needed a teaching day.
It was such fun,
Granny soaked all the fruit for 2 weeks pouring in brandy every day. It took 3/4 bottle. No wonder it smells good.
Then we added the chopped almonds. and gave it a big stir. Lots of stirring in this pud.
Then the girls were having so much fun cracking the 9 eggs and putting the threepence's and bone button in. Plus all the wishing while it was stirred that Granny forgot to take the photos.
Here it is on the stove. It had to boil for 7 hours. Wow It was a huge pot....
It was all wrapped up in calico and tied up with string. Then it looked like a cauldron filled with pudding.
After 7 hours we lifted it out, and it was very heavy. Just as well I was there to help Granny.
We had to hang it up to dry on a rack,then in 2 days time we hang it up on a hook in the laundry until Christmas. You won't believe this, but Granny has had a pudding hanging for 3 years and it was the best pudding ever.
I just wish you could smell it.
Now I think I need Toast, peanut butter and honey in large amounts!!!! It has been a frustrating day getting Granny's pictures posted. I hid under the desk while she was venting... Scary. Any way she has such wonderful friends who helped her, Like Joyce from "The Bears Blog" and lots of others. That is what is so nice about the family of friends that is world wide, every one helps.
She eventually found out if you belong to Google Plus you don't need to buy storage.
Can you feel the tension melt away.
I can And I am eating my toast and honey.
This is a tree outside my house and I wanted to share it with my new follower, and all my regular followers.

My thought for the week:
"To err is human,
To really foul things up requires a computer"
