March of the Penguins
Like the wannabe posh woman, Susan Carter, on BBC Radio 4's long running soap, the Archers canapes are on our Christmas Day menu replacing the need for a sit down starter and I searched my cookbooks and the Internet to provide inspiration of what could be prepared ahead of time.
After an extensive search for two different sized types of black olives for heads and bodies, these cute beasties were assembled. Instructions can be found here, along with a picture of a far more professional looking end product. But then, again these were probably created by a food stylist who had less fun making them than the seven year old Louis and his clumsy mother! I've decided to present them on a snowy landscape of cheese topped biscuits with a Christmas tree garnish, a venerable meeting of North versus South indeed. A photo of the finished products will be added later if they're not wolfed down by the family before I can get my shot!
PS: They got eaten too quickly!!!!
