FFfAW Challenge – 197th

Christmas Edition! Yummy food, what more can I say?

This week’s picture is from Yarnspinnerr: Merry Christmas Yarnspinnerr!

Times were hard in the village, so it was decided to celebrate Christmas Day at the community hall and each household to bring something for the table.
Geoff at number 4 had the build to play Santa with no padding, and his neighbours dressed as elves to keep the kids entertained.  Old Mrs Cross played the piano for musical chairs and other party games and everyone was in good spirits.
Gaily wrapped gifts valued at no more than five pounds were deposited into Santa’s sack on arrival and the ladies from the local WI took charge of laying out paper plates, napkins and disposable cutlery for their feast.
Eileen’s contribution was homemade rather than shop bought and she thought everyone would make fun of her. Simply a dish of puff pastry cut into triangles dipped in honey and dusted with icing sugar, by the end of the afternoon, she had fourteen requests for the recipe.
The kids were content and sleepy, and everyone said it had been one of the best Christmases ever.

Merry Christmas everyone.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Santa listened to Eileen. No one laughed at her. She was admired and her recipe well sought after. That is called wish coming true.

  3. Those sound really delicious! I hope you had a great Christmas! Great story!

    What a delightful story, Di. And the idea of celebrating Christmas Day at the local community hall was a really good one. Hope you had a good Christmas yourself 🙂

    • It was lovely, thank you. We had no running around to do for anyone or planning visits, so could just relax and enjoy the day. Saw the sunrise on Christmas Day which was awesome.
