It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas........and in this house, it's beginning to smell a lot like Christmas.  That's because today I'm finally cooking our Xmas pudding.  Yes, I do it the traditional way in a cloth bag and a massive pot.  I use my Nana's recipe and I'm too scared to cook it any other way in case it doesn't taste as good as her's.  She also passed on one of her old pots as she told me my pot needed to be bigger.  And I must say, what a quality pot - much sturdier than any of my newer ones.  Anyway here's some photos for you to look at, I just wish you could smell the aroma coming from my kitchen.  And as you can see I had a little helper, and her suggestion was rather than use the old sixpence and shilling coins, we should be putting in chocolate coins!  Hmmmmm..........
