If there’s one thing worse for a food blogger than having a dodgy stomach, then it’s having a dodgy stomach 3 days before Christmas.

Instead of indulging in bucketloads of hot port and mince pies, as would be customary at this time of year, yesterday I was confined to tea and toast. Today, feeling better but still a bit cautious, I made some plain-ish crackers, just with flour, a little butter and milk, and sprinkled, some with salt and some with poppy seeds. Now, my experience with crackers is mixed and today was no different, but these, at least, had the twin virtues of looking festive and being easy on the innards. Meanwhile, I am sincerely hoping that my digestive capacities will be back to full strength in time for the feasting to come!
