Christmas gift suggestions:
To your enemy, forgiveness.
To an opponent, tolerance.
To a friend, your heart.
To a customer, service.
To all, charity.
To every child, a good example.
To yourself, respect.
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself.
Norman W. Brooks
(this is one of our favorite short Xmas poems it contains wisdom in its verses)
He is almost what he should be when the Christmas season's here;
Then he's thinking more of others than he's thought the months before,
And the laughter of his children is a joy worth toiling for.
He is less a selfish creature than at any other time;
When the Christmas spirit rules him he comes close to the sublime.
The spirit of Christmas which is peace;
The heart of Christmas which is love.
Ada V. Hendricks

1 French loaf (one day-old bread is best)
5ml grated lemon rind
oil for frying
1 stick cinnamon
50ml Port wine
Cut the bread into slices about 2 cm thick. Beat the eggs and place in a soup plate. Mix the milk amd lemon rind and pour into a seperate soup plate. Dip the bread slices into the milk and then the beaten egg. Fry in hot oil. Drain well.
To make the syrup, boil the sugar and water for 3 minutes. Dip each fried bread into the hot syrup and then place in a deep serving bowl. Add the cinnamon stick and Port wine to the remaining syrup, bring to the boil and pour over the slices of bread.
Sprinkle the bread with cinnamon and sugar after frying.
These tipsy slices can also be dipped in red wine. Recipe in my other blog
