Christmas dinner this year will consist of: Home made pasta (using my brand new pasta maker) with a cream sauce, crab and 3 types of cheese baked in ramekins, as well as HUGE AAA Rib eye steaks BBQ'd of course, complete with onions and mushrooms, 5-6oz lobster tails, and a full pickle tray. For desert: choc walnut fudge, home made turtles and deluxe fruit & nut clusters.

I will take pictures if I remember

I took pictures before I would let anyone sit down and eat... all but "Grampa" surrendered about halfway through.. "Grampa" cleaned his plate

Now if anyone can tell me how to make pictures appear on here, I would be grateful.

So I made my first batch of yogurt with my new yogurt maker, and I have to say, its not as sweet at store bought, and is a bit thicker, but quite good. I was scared at the calorie content at first, but then realized the 229 calories is for an 8 ounce container, where most store bought single serves are 3-4ounces. That was for Strawberry. Even with fresh Strawberries its basically compote before its added. The plain yogurt was 149 calories for 8 ounces... so as soon as I can get over the not sweet factor, I will be loving the healthy side of it!

Also I have an ice cream maker, and the frozen yogurt is 1/3 of the calories as regular ice cream, and cheaper to make

I am making a plain yogurt as we speak that will be for frozen yogurt, and a cream cheese style cheese, as well as enough starter for 2 more batches.

Anyone else have a yogurt maker, with recipes you like? I have found a few, but they are fairly basic. I am loving the fact I can make yogurt for my friend (with soy milk) and her mom (with Stevia sweetener). I was thinking of Clodfobble when I found the soy milk recipe... Can your kids have Soy milk, or rice milk?

Well, right now they can have neither, because they're on a medical formula diet. But hopefully in another month or two they can start having real foods back, including our milk substitutes of choice, almond milk and coconut milk, both of which you can make yogurt out of. I'm also curious about hemp milk, but we haven't tried it. A yogurt maker is almost certainly in our future, but I don't really like yogurt myself, so I keep putting it off for now.

Printed off the details of our New Year meal just now because we'd forgotten what was in it!
I paid for it months ago as a present for the 'rents.
Dad picks it up tomorrow and we have to decide whether we're having it New Year's Eve or New Year's Day.

We don't know what the rest of the family are doing yet - which is driving my organised Mum mad! Things are still tense at my sister's. Previously the 'rents had a standing invitation there over New Year. In fact I bought the meal so Mum, Dad and I could have some special time together at some point, as I expected to be excluded from the invite. I did tell them we could have it whenever they wanted, but they were NOT taking it over to Laura's if I wasn't invited!

Shellfish Platter
Serves: 4 (7.50/g)

A feast for shellfish fans that's just perfect for sharing. Includes:
• Two halves of fresh Canadian lobster
• King prawns
• Madagascan tiger prawns
• Orkney crab meat served in a shell
All with a creamy lemon mayonnaise and lemon slices

Nom nom nom.
