We always have a large rib of beef (bone in) a real treat

I am jealous. I managed to achieve a beef roast 2 years ago but it's impossible this year where I live.

God I love rib roast - no other cut comes anywhere near it.

I know. And you just can't get a decent beef roast here anymore unless you hock your house. And even then, in S. Spain it just might be inedible.

And with current Spanish house prices, I think it would be a very small joint!

Indeed! At Christmas, as I say, prices go through the roof. I saw at Lidl entrecote on offer for 15 Euros. That's a special deal. When you go to a nice restaurant, if they have beef steaks or joints on the menu, it will say "price according to market." Which means "We are going to soak you and then hang you out to dry. Enjoy your meal because you won't be able to buy food for the rest of the month."

I have decided that I am going to buy some of these this Christmas to perk up some fizz...has anyone tried?

Wild Hibiscus Flowers In Syrup 250G I have found a website that does 40 for £20 ish.....
It's a little expensive but will turn a nice Cava into something special I think.

Lorraine had them on her Christmas show and they looked very festive..and you can eat them and they are good for you!

We had them one year pixie, they do look lovely but pretty expensive. Last year we took a tip from nigella and made gingerbread champagne cocktails using monin syrup. Delicious. Poorly and hot choc with creme de menthe. Just ordered a ton of monin stuff from acicha, including blueberry syrup and caramel sauce! My postie will be getting a decent tip this year me thinks

They are delicious Charlie..there are some lovely 50ml gift boxes too...saw them at the cash and carry.....fancied something fruity. Love Kir but thought the edible flowers looked lovely. Found a website with good price.

That does sound slightly more like it. My cousin in law bought the ones we had, sure they were over a pound each! That's half a book!!!

Ha, yep, comfort all the way I reckon :)

Awww, I don't know?.....comfort may warm the body? - but romance nourishes the soul.....x

Romance is what warms the heart, which may vary from person to person. The most romantic thing I remember in 30 yrs of marriage was one day when I'd been working as a simultaneous translator at some weekend-long meetings. I was exhausted by Monday, which fortunately was a holiday...and DH brought me a cuppa to the bed. He never does that, and has never done it again. Now THAT was romantic!
Letting me sit around in my jimjams with a glass of something would be romantic anytime, since he is pretty gogogo. Today for example we have declared "Orinoco day" (or rather, anna day, since that's my name) and I got up at 10. Cuppa tea, Internet, jammies...blisss...
