Well thank you for all those recip-e's dear people. Some of them we've tried, and others we surely will.
A special thank you goes to Serephino, a veritable whirlwind of delicious looking recip-e's
Always contributing and keeping the tasty treats coming

To everyone please stay tuned for our special holiday edition of recip-E's with Despickable and Xandi. Which will feature not only our and hopefully your favorite thanksgiving and Christmas delights, but also Banter bout the batter, Illing bout the filling, Trash bout the mash and boasting bout the basting. Or rather, tips and tricks to make those special holiday recipes in quick and easy ways.

Des Here

Thanks Katataban  I look forward to seeing what you can add to the holiday treats.
 I'm thinking Double Dutch pancakes and Holland Daze Sauces on the turkey
For those not aware Katataban is from the Netherlands and will be getting into cold icy winter weather, where as I in sunny Australia, where it's currently Day Light Savings, and we are getting an extra hour of rain.

But summer is coming up and so soon the festive season. It's a good time for holiday eating, so diet now.

For those who celebrate Halloween I will be getting some pics from Xandi, hopefully of cakes she is baking for the occasion, but if readers out there have suggestions for spooky food for the Halloween night that will be great to have them posted here to share with others.

HOLIDAY HUNGER BUSTERS

The traditional Christmas dinner in Australia is much the same as elsewhere, we have the roast meats of chicken and turkey, and good old Aussie lamb. We usually have cold meats as well which can be prepare done for a good mix of hot and cold
The Aussie BBQ is traditional the male domain and in the evenings, though Boxing Day is the time for the BBQ. It's where sometimes the only time men cook at all. The ladies prepare salads and sweets, including the Christmas Pud and other desserts that have been previously displayed on this site.

Going Dutch
[/b]

Being a country that has gotten most of it's cutlure from being occupied or occupying others, the Dutch menu has become very diverse. None more so than Christmas dinner. Now traditionally Christmas is a less lavish feast in the Netherlands than most other countries, both because of our calvinist nature and the fact that three weeks before Christmas we celebrate the feast of st Nicholas.

Now as for food, most Dutch households tend to eat a lot of smaller meals. Although we do Christmas dinner, it is not the big heavy meal most traditions have. Instead we have treats and snacks and pastries all through the day, and dinner is just a part of it.

Now the most well known Dutch Christmas dinner is Cooked Rabbit. Often served with mash and green beans. Many families have a tradition of buying baby rabbits in spring and keep them as a pet until slaughtered before Christmas, usually leaving behind a few dismayed children missing their pet. Venison and beef are also major hits come Christmas day, as is chicken.

Now as I said, the Dutch tradition is filled with other cultures' influence. Most notably from Indonesia and Dutch Guyana (Surinam) So spices and foreign vegetables have been part of the traditions for ages, as some of my recipes will show.


Some recep-E's will be added in future posts as we lead into the holiday season. I invite readers to tell us their food fare  that is eaten during this time and recp-E's as many as you like because this year I want to contribute to the family table and looking for something different to try on the family.

Thanksgiving is not something celebrated in the land of OZ but then again, Boxing Day is more traditional for us and the fine folks of the UK, but please send in ideas to share on the Thanksgiving feats and and lets us celebrate with you here

Any way more to come over the coming weeks so as Bug Bunny says  for now That's all Folks

Please keep sending us those wonderful recip-E's

Once again thanks Serephino for your contribution again always a pleasure and have wonderful array of great meals to check out.

I also believe our American friends are about to hit the Thanksgiving Day Festivals and gorging on juicy morsels. Please readers from the States send any of your Thanksgiving recipes along we would love to see them. Being in Australia we don't celebrate it but of course we have Boxing Day along with the poms (slang for British people) for our extra pig out time, and of course barbies

Anyway a treat I borrowed (copied) from a website www.bestrecepes.com.au and as a real chocoholic I have tried. Sticky gooey and messy I'm just a big kid

Deep Fried Mars Bars

Serves: 2
Preparation time: 15 minutes or less
Ingredients
2 Mars Bars
cup flour
10 tablespoons water
Pinch of salt
Vegetable oil for shallow frying

Method
1. Mix together a batter mixture with the flour, water and salt.
2. Mixture should be runny with no bubbles or lumps.
3. Place a small saucepan on the stove and pour in enough oil to just cover the Mars Bar.
4. Heat at a low temperature. Drop in a little pinch of batter, if the batter rises, bubbles and
browns it is ready.
5. Using tongs dip the Mars Bar into the batter mix, covering the entire bar.
6. Place it in the saucepan and shallow fry for 1 minute or until crunchy and golden.
7. Remove and place on a plate with paper towel so excess oil can be soaked up.

These are so yummy but can be rich on their own

Hope to see Kat back soon and we will have a big feature coming up for Christmas. I really want to find out if he has a recipe for those fabulous short breads that I can't pronounce
And find out more about how they celebrate Christmas in the Netherlands

See ya soon

Can't wait to taste them. It is the classic Greek baklava. I love it.
