This week I have had family visit me . The home always feels a bit empty when they have gone home , miles and miles away .
I decided to use the lemons from the fridge to make lemon curd, It thickened well .
I then decided to make some mincemeat . I bought 2 packs of dried fruit last week by mistake . It will be better used as mincemeat than getting dry in the packet . I gave it a slosh of Jack Daniels to perk it up . It smells good . I shall add butter instead of suet as Mary Berry suggested , probably some flaked almonds too .
