The Pita Bread Christmas Trees below are adorable.  And,  will be featuring in my Christmas menus.

Retro Christmas Appetizers

As will the Party Loaf.   I did find the recipe for Susan’s Party Loaf as mentioned in the article, however I preferred this one from Betty Crocker purely for the completely unnecessary use of food colouring…you know you’re taking a ride on the way-back machine when that happens.

Plus it’s got carrots made into flowers and i just bought a flower shaped cutter from Daiso that I’m itching to use.  Stay tuned…

And the Madras Cocktail ?  Take a look at this piece of awesomeness…

Don’t drink them all they say?  Who are they kidding?   The recipe which is here

put me in mind of the old Dorothy Parker quote:

“I like to have a martini,
Two at the very most.
After three I’m under the table,
after four I’m under the  host.”

This thing might not just knock your socks off, it could take your ankles with it.

I  can’t wait to try it!

So what retro treats are you all planning for Christmas?
