Okay, so I know this is another Christmas-related post in November, but please bare with me! When I was growing up, one of the traditions I can remember in the run-up to Christmas, along with making the Christmas cake, was to make mince pies with my Mum, and bung them in the freezer, so by the time December came, we had a nice little stockpile.
I tried making some with Freddie and Sasha earlier this week, and it was fab this year, as both could actively help out. When I say ‘help out’, I mean squish, lick and generally mangle the pastry into some sort of mince pie, despite me telling them not to lick said mince pies! I have labelled this batch ‘immediate family only’, as I don’t reckon many people would be too keen to be served these up at our boxing day party if they knew the process of how they came about! They were definitely made with love though, and I really hope that this is a tradition that we can continue with F & S, just like I did as a small child. It’s so lovely to pass something on, and you definitely get the joy second time round as a parent.
Do you have any traditions that you want to pass on to your little ones?
