Note to self

Cheesy biscuits and Cointreau butter do indigestion make.

awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwws! *pats belly*

Yuk! What on earth possessed you? Try some peppermnint tea, or mints of any sort.

I got the download, BtW, but haven't dared try it on the Ipod. I'm discovering more missing tracks :(.

They were yummy! Almost as nice as chocolate yoghurt and chips (suprisingly nice). I'll try some Tic Tacs.

If you need more songs like me know.

I need to bounce some WIP ideas off you. I've been thinking again.

Well, yeah. Kind of an unmixy combination. Siding with the lovely hesadevil and suggesting the peppermint tea.

Unfortunately all I have is Mandarin and Lychee tea.

What else can I put Cointreau Butter on though?

Mincepies, Christmas cake, Christmas pudding, digestive biscuits, pancakes - possibly with a spoonful of marmalade. Dashes away to look for the Cointreau cream from the fridge...

>>Mincepies, Christmas cake, Christmas pudding,

I don't like any of those. Digestives are banned because I'll scoff them all. But pancakes sound very promising...

I have Irish Cream Cream (and nothing to go with it either).

When we had brandy butter last Christmas we kept some that had come packed in a jar until Kat's birthday in April, then she had it with pancakes and stewed apple - and it was wonderful - definitely go for the pancake option.

You could just float the Irish Cream cream on coffee, or I know (jumps up and down!) I know - on ice-cream - probably just good vanilla, but otherwise on chocolate ice-cream - yes!

Diet in January, definitely.

Thank you! Funnily enough my birthday cake looks just like the Christmas cake, but with less cake around the penguins....!!

I still prefer Tiramisu.

With Cointreau butter? Or with Irish Cream cream?

See the trouble is I can almost always find a way of adding even more calories to things.

S2C believes it is the calories that give food it's taste - the more calories it has the better it tastes, and the more calories they take out the worse it tastes.

A pretty sound theory that proves the existence of celery.

Celery obviously has invisible and tasteless calories - have you ever seen a thin gorilla? But they apparently live on the stuff!

My daughter likes celery - this proves that she is not totally perfect. Mind you she also likes Parma Violets! Possibly the only person in the whole world who likes Parma Violets. Maybe she is a changeling!

I have no idea what Parma Violets are.

Even a whiff of Celery gives me headaches.

Was it worth it, though?

Loving your 12 days story, btw. Sorry I haven't given feedback yet.

They were lovely. I propably just ate too many. Unless the Turkey I had with it was dodgy...

Glad you're enjoying 12 days, this are a little quieter this time round.

Where does one get Cointreau butter, and how do I get it???

I got it in Sainsburys.

Though that's not much use to you.

Can such things be made? Like Brandy butter?

I assume you make them much the same way you make brandy butter. (My daughter made that this year. Not enough brandy, though.)

Just whisk up butter and icing sugar (or caster sugar) till it's gone all white and fluffy, then add booze. Keep whisking and adding booze till it tastes about right.
Finish what's left in the bottle because it would be a shame to let it go to waste.

Apple pie would be nice with Cointreau butter.

Hmm. It would. Very filling though.

It's giving me indigestion from here!

I'm thinking maybe the cheese straws might have been too much.

Ummm... well...

*struggles to resist the urge to say "duh" in Dawnvoice*

*gives in*

Well, duh...

*adds eye roll for good measure*

Hope the mints helped!

Not really, felt better after the onion bahji though.

Damn party food.

I've got indigestion just reading about it -- so I want some. If I have to suffer, I should at least enjoy eating them. I'll have to make do with Carr's Whole Wheat Crackers and Whipped Cream Cheese with Strawberry swirls.




That sounds alright. I was only eating the butter because I ran out of the pineapple cheese.
