It seems but a distant memory now, but I thought that the group’s excellent effort at cooking Christmas dinner should get a mention on the blog:
On a cold, horribly rainy night before Christmas the group congregated at Wandsworth Mind Resource Centre to cook up a Christmas dinner and celebrate the festive season. One of our members expertly prepped the chicken (we decided trying to cook a whole turkey would be excessive!) as the rest of us scoffed mince pies and prepared the veg, potatoes, stuffing and other assorted trimmings.
One of our volunteers cooked up a delicious sticky toffee pudding which was very, very moreish. We all enjoyed our meal, complete with crackers (and appalling cracker jokes!). It put everyone in the mood for the week ahead.
We also took the opportunity to decide that the group will be better placed on a Tuesday evening from now on. This will allow several of our current members, and one of our volunteers, to continue attending (they had clashing activities on a Wednesday). We are also now officially running twice monthly! More details of that to follow!
I hope that everyone had a lovely break over the last couple of weeks.
