This will probably be my last post till after Christmas, so it's long. You might like to read it in installments, hahaha.
"A traveller without knowledge is a bird without wings," so said Sa'di, Gulistan (1258).

THE BRIOCHE DES ROIS
- A large handful of activated almonds (or ordinary almonds)
- A small handful of dates
- A few dried figs (optional--I love figs)
- A dessertspoon of raw cacoa dried chocolate (I use the proper stuff from the health food store). You can substitute ordinary cocoa.
- About 3 large tablespoons of nut spread/butter (hazelnut, macadamia, whatever). If you're a fan of peanut butter (I'm not) you could use that.
- I hope you enjoyed reading a little about Christmas traditions in Provence and here in Oz.
- What are your traditions for the holiday season?

And thanks to those who've participated in WEP challenges this year. Hopefully we will find a way to resume in the New Year.
