    Thrift-ing

    I bought this dog cushion for a toy for my boy . I was reduced to half price & he made a great fuss of it when it arrived in the post. As the sale ended within 2 days I ordered 2 more for his xmas gifts... then he decided the game was over with the one he has. So.. they will become christmas gifts for other dogs... or I might find it difficult to part with both as theyre sooo soft.

    Glad you found a bargain Rad. I thought I had when buying shoes at just $99 reduced from $168 but sadly the heels are too high for me now. It seems Ive been wearing sneakers for so long that I no longer feel nor walk right in really high heels. Oh well.. they will make a nice christmas gift for a friend.

    Christmas Fare

    Another misinterpretation, at no time have I expressed a dislike of you. IYRC you will recall the empathy & support I endowed upon you when your husband was ill & passed. It was soon after that you became nasty, which I have tried to tolerate by making allowances for your grief. It is flattering that you follow my posts yet is bordering on pathetic when your replies are mostly negative. I have no idea why you chose to try & turn a christmas fare thread in the recipes into a craft fair . It was not made from a cheese ball but into a ball & from there to a cone shape. The thread was deliberately formed to encourage others to post their special festive recipes. Please feel free to add a recipe but I ask you to stay on topic ..............it is a recipe forum.

    What drives you bananas?

    No manufacturer would write bad reviews. I never read company or manufacturer reviews. I won't be dealing with the company or the manufacturer but a dealer or store and they must have a good reputation. I'd never buy from a dealer or store who doesn't print the bad reviews with the good. A bad review doesn't turn me off as long as there are more good than bad. A bad review could be from someone who doesn't read instructions of use common sense. The trick is to weigh the good against the bad

    Christmas Fare

    Lee--The Name of that recipe is "Antipasto CHEESE BALL Christmas tree" It was not my interpretation but the actual fact. I'm sorry you don't like my posts but these forums are open to anyone and I'll continue to post when I want to!!! Somehow you have taken a dislike to me--That's too bad but you'll just have to get used to me being around. I'm not going anywhere

    Christmas Fare

    You still didnt read the link DG. No...Its not a cheese ball. Its spiced cream cheese shaped into a cone shape to mimic a xmas tree. As the instructions suggested...occasionally to be kept chilled during the making if its becoming too soft & again during the presentation. Its OK DG, you dont have to edit all of my posts to place your interpretations.

    I see! They used a used a cheese ball instead of a cone--Good idea.That would make it easier to form the antipasto tree. It would have to be kept cool though so you couldn't put it out until the festivities were under way

    What drives you bananas?

    In a way that makes good sense to smaller struggling companies. But the likes of giant Superstores like Walmart & Target, discounting and running promotions is one of the most popular and arguably the most effective on the high streets today, one way to drive sales up, nothing but a pricing strategy for retailers across all sectors, I always see it as yet another capitalist ploy to enhance profits.

    What drives you bananas?

    So pleased for you that the Wizz spreader worked out alright for you. Some years ago had the same problem at my front garden next to my drive-in where absolutely nothing grew in this particular spot for years, including your idea, so many others were given to me. So in the end, I got so fed-up with this non-fertile soil, where it couldn’t even produce grass. I thought enough is enough. I dug this complete patch up, went to my local garden centre and bought enough lawn grass turf to cover that offending area, and that solved the problem. From then onwards grass grew every year. A step back to the topic: To the manufactures, selling their products is business, at the other end of the stick, we are the consumers who get the worst part of the deal in the end. Yes! So it doesn’t harm, to be cautious when buying any product. But what’s so annoying, when manufacturers use customer’s reviews as a further ploy to enhance their prophets/business. And you’re so right, “the manufacturer could have written those reviews” themselves. And then the obvious springs to mind, (are we being taken for a ride).

    Christmas Fare

    no styrofoam cone was used. Theres a link in the original post explaining what was used & how it was formed.

    Christmas Fare

    Most likely that tree was formed over a Styrofoam cone bought in a craft store. It seems like it would be easy to replicate with olives, peppers preserved in oil and stuck into the cone with toothpicks. Rosemary is used for the sprigs showing. The star is cut out of a yellow pepper

    This method would also make a great standard round cake. I'd be happy to have a birthday cheesecake in this style. serve with forks & small plates
