Well, thank you SO much for taking the time out to enter my competition to win the clearly much-coveted Ninja Foodie Max! I’m sorry I’ve not responded personally to the 500 or so comments below, but I thoroughly enjoyed learning about your special recipes for cakes, stews and family favourites and you’ve definitely given me inspiration to try something new myself!
As there was only one of these 15-in-1 cookers to give away, sadly there can only be one winner, but I’m delighted to tell you that Joanna Terry is now the proud owner of this fantastic and versatile product – well she will be once I’ve parceled it up and sorted the courier! I believe the first thing she plans to cook in it is a Real Ale beef stew, with buttered crusty bread which she’s going to serve to her entire family as they were all poorly over Christmas! CONGRATULATIONS Joanna.
As you’ll know from my previous blog, both Colin and I were also poorly over Christmas and had to cancel everything we had planned. On top of that in the last three weeks almost all the children have had Covid so we’ve not managed a separate get-together up until now.
But last Sunday we transformed the building site that used to be our sitting room, cleared away all the tools, strung up some fairy lights, lit the log burner and plugged in several fans so it was cosy before setting the table and bringing the remainder of the furniture in from the container.
We served a traditional roast turkey – the one I’d put in the freezer on Christmas Eve, and gammon, with all the trimmings, and successfully fed all 15 of us! It was an absolute joy to have everyone together and to see the little ones too, and we played daft games, listened to Christmas music, caught up with the family’s news and even exchanged the last of the presents – it was great fun.
I do hope if you had to postpone your celebrations, you’ll soon have the chance to get together, and that if you like so many others are feeling poorly that you’ll be better soon. It does seem that finally the numbers of people with Covid are dropping and the spread is slowing down so fingers crossed we may be through the worst of it now. Onwards and upwards!
With my love,
