More snow

I may be re-thinking this whole White Christmas thing....

This morning the snow here is so thick that no one can get their cars off the street. Mark, Kev and Rob had to get the bus to Asda this morning instead of going in Rob's car, and I have no idea if I'll be able to pick them up at the end of the day!

More snow is forecast for the rest of the day, with sub-zero temps tonight. I've suggested that if the roads are clear at the end of tomorrow that we head straight to my mums tomorrow night instead of waiting till the morning. Mark'll have to do his last minute shopping in Burnley. At least that way we'll be a bit closer to the In-Laws and wont have as far to drive in one go.

It's crossed my mind that maybe we wont get out of Lancaster! Which is a bit of a worry as we don't have anything that would pass as a Christmas Dinner here - apart from the pud and other sweets we bought to take to Jenny's. Christmas day here - just the 3 of us - wouldn't feel like Christmas. It'd just be another day, with presents. Don't fancy that! Mark suggested he buy a roast, just in case. It can always go in the freezer for another day....

I do still want a White Christmas, but I want the roads to be clear enough to get to where we're going too!

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on
