Hot mince pies on a grey day

I've just run up a batch of unseasonable mince pies - and here they are, hot from the oven and dusted with icing sugar. The kitchen is imbued with the homely smell of baking; sugar and spice and all things nice. I'm almost inclined to eat one....




This is one unimaginably dreary day, devoid of colour; the grey flannel landscape is as weary as a worn pair of old school trousers.

It's a day for staying indoors and well, eating mince pies.

They look good I have to say and I'm very tempted to reach into my computer and pinch one!!

Yum! I don't actually like mince pies, but I do love the smell of cooking and baking in the kitchen :D

Yum! I love mince pies - any season will do! I have already started on Hot Cross Buns too.

I see you have a Tom who is a Graphic Designer too - I liked his graphics anyway.

I'm trying not to eat mince pies after the Christmas surfeit. I fear this picture may be the straw that breaks the camel's back! I hope you feel guilty!

It seems to be a week for staying inside and eating mince pies, alas.
