Only one more sleep until Christmas and all through the land last minute preparations are being made for the big day at hand. For UK fans this includes the annual Downton Abbey Christmas episode on ITV. US fans may debate the reasons why PBS broadcasts new episodes months behind ITV, but in the spirit of the season why not focus on the long standing fruitcake debate.
CBC Radio (Canadian Broadcast Corporation) ran a fun story about the love/hate relationship with fruitcake today. I did my best to stick up for our favorite holiday treat, but more about that below. Today’s Downton Dish recipe which will come in handy in a few days. It is what I call the Remains of the Day Turkey Soup which is a great way to use up leftovers, or what I like to call “made overs”. It is one of the recipes from my cookbook, Abbey Cooks Entertain. My holiday gift to you all.
