Christmas is coming!

I've seen a number of Facebook posts telling me Christmas is just weeks away!  Some of the shops already have Christmas Trees up.

So I guess it's time to think about:
  • gifts
  • food
  • holiday?
  • family
  • friends
  • what the Christmas season is really about.

So to get started:

Don't forget to look at "The Christmas Story" video as well...

The Christmas Story

Lamb Shank Soup - slow cooker

Oh yum!  Lamb shank soup - so easy in the slow cooker!  Again, as I have stated in previous blog - you can use your own homemade stock.

When you've had a rough day or it's freezing cold outside - the slow cooker (crockpot) really comes into its own with a delicious meal - prep, set and forget!  Just don't forget to enjoy...

Paprika Chicken (in the slow cooker)

If you have a slow cooker, or crockpot, check out the following link for Paprika Chicken.  There is nothing quite like the smell of a beautiful cooked meal waiting for you when you open the door after a long day at work!

Please note in this recipe, I would use my own homemade stock (either made on stove or in Thermomix)

Living in Far North Queensland in Australia is one of the most beautiful places in the world!  I'm happily married with children and enjoy living life everyday.  Life isn't always fun or easy, but it is character building and changing and this makes it exciting.  I don't want to live a boring life - I want to live a life that makes a difference!  How about you?
