A Very Savings Christmas

Posted September 6th, 2010 by Mimi

For we Simple Savings members, Christmas is almost here. Well, Christmas planning is here.

I used to be the girl racing around David Jones at 4:30 on Christmas Eve. I found it exhilarating. The bill in January was not so much!

Now I sew scrunchies, headbands, pyjama pants and library bags. I make Bulk Pancake Mix, Tomato Relish and Christmas Compote. Some of my friends wait all year for my Chicken Liver Pate` because I only make it at Christmas.

My latest effort was, once again, inspired by my friends at Fig & Pannacotta, when we challenged ourselves to use coffee as an ingredient.

My idea was for Orange Espresso Candied Walnuts. They were super easy, once I got the proportions of ingredients right, but the recipe is a secret until the next newsletter...shhhhhh.
