for speedy Christmas journaling, which is that it leaves time for baking, which is never a bad thing. Well, unless you should happen to drop a batch of Devil's food cupcakes, accidentally turn up the oven while bending over to retrieve them and as a result leave the second batch resembling charcoal balls (eh Lou?? ;)).
Here's my speedy journal page for today's prompt, which was about a perfect present. My page is slighty away from the original prompt and tells the tale of this year's frantic search for a Peppa Pig Campervan, which has been top of Gracie's Christmas list since about July - and was out of stock EVERYWHERE! When we did eventually find one, Jaqs called about 2 hours later to say she'd managed to get one online. Thus illustrating that campervan's are a bit like buses - you wait all month and then two come along at once. Not unlike cookie blog posts then, really :P
and so, onto the baking. While I was true to my promise and stuck with a quick and simple journal page for today, I had time to bake these:
The recipe is from Nigella Lawson's website. I haven't had the taste test yet - they're still a little too hot for eating, but they smell YUMMY :)
