Marissa's Chicken Nuggets with Salad
I took home some of these chicken nuggets that Marissa made for our feast yesterday. I rummaged around in the fridge for whatever nibbles I could find to throw together this plate of leftovers for lunch.
In the evening I busied myself making cupcakes to take to work tomorrow for everyone. I used the prepackaged White Wings chocolate cake mixture but instead of using milk, I used buttermilk.
By adding drops of green food colouring, I transformed some of the frosting to green and piped little 'christmas trees' on some of the cupcakes.
I didn't have time to find a cutter to make holly leaves, so I had another idea. Here's how to make holly leaves from green musk sticks:
As you can see, one side gets flattened against the chopping board when you slice it. Using a blunt utensil, make an indentation into the flattened side and this should reshape the musk stick slice to look like a holly leaf!
Prawn Salad with a Tangy Dressing
I made the dressing with mayonnaise, tomato sauce and fresh squeezed lemon juice.
At a recent party I went to, they had this gorgeous new drink that I instantly fell in love with.
