Gingerbread cookies

Just getting around to uploading some old photos. I made a LOT of gingerbread cookies for parties and as presents for friends and family in December 2011 - January 2012. I made them in Christmas trees, hearts, and Miffy shapes. I became quite good at them, if I say so myself. :)

Miffy for the young and young at heart.

Classic rounds for the grown ups.

Stars for Christmas.

I even made mince pie tarts. 

Sunday roast lamb with rosemary and garlic

Actually I cooked this several months ago, but only just got around to uploading the pictures to my laptop. It's a rosemary and garlic New Zealand lamb shoulder, with gravy, roast potatoes and veggies. A traditional British-style Sunday roast. It was a large joint of meat and we had a lot of leftover meat for pasta, sandwiches, etc.
