We finished work for Christmas on Friday so it is nice and relaxed around here. I have a big pile of shirts to alter for someone, a dress to make and a shirt for me.
Earlier I made these gf vegan mince pies from the Naturally Sassy blog they are really nice and the home made fruit mince smells lovely while cooking I have a lot left so will be making more to freeze tomorrow.
I didn't have a cutter I don't know where they have got to, so I used a wine glass as recommended by Saskia, and I have seen such pretty mince pies where the tops have been cut with a fancy cutter. I don't do much pastry since becoming gluten free as it is so hit and miss and very difficult to handle. These were tricky while rolling but now they are cooked they hold up well.
I read Gone Girl this last few weeks as it was recommended by a couple of friends, quite a twist in that one so worth a look if you haven't already. I have a few to read over the next few weeks a box set of non fiction by C. S Lewis and a few others which I will share later. I have started a little journal for myself with what I read each month in it and a short review, as I often forget over time and it can come in handy when you are thinking about whether to revisit a certain author.
On the television I have recently finished watching the Swedish drama 30° in February on Sky Arts, this has been a fabulous series if you want to watch it you will have to go back and watch from series 1 to get the whole story. I am a little sad it's finished, however I have started watching another Swedish drama called Modus and that one is good too. A lot of people I know won't watch any TV with subtitles but they are missing so many good dramas.
