Christmas Pressie from Work

OH works for Hotpoint Indesit and for the past couple of years he has come home at Christmas with a present from the Company and it arrives in a plain brown string handled box just like this.

Inside that box (which is quite heavy) there is a Panettone (lovely for bread and butter pudding this one has the peel in it) and there is nothing quite like bread and butter pudding in the cold winter months.  Interestingly enough bread and butter pudding was off my eat list as a child but now it is one of my favourites along with steamed Treacle Sponge.

A bag of Cantucci sweet almond biscuits which we eat as they are or in a trifle soaked with a little sherry or Amaretto or Tiramisu or Lemoncello pudding and two bars of proper Italian Touronne nougat which is to die for one chocolate and one plain.  It is a hard nougat but once you start eating it, it goes all soft and chewy.

Its a super pressie and every member of staff gets one. Next year may be different but for now it is very gratefully received to add to the Christmas stockpile.

And the box will join two other boxes which I have turned into hat boxes.  So far I have left them plain but the intention is to decoupage them in due course or paint them not quite decided yet.
