Figs are a Christmas essential in our household, the sweet jewels are great for savoury or sweet dishes making everything really festive. A simple cream cheese toast with orange marmalade and figs on top is a luxurious morning or evening treat that takes seconds to make. I also add a fresh herb on top and this time, we had thyme in the house. The key is to be generous with the cream cheese and jam that marries so wonderfully with the figs. Right, now its time to start arranging hyacinths into little pots and bathe our little one afterwards. Hubby started his Christmas holidays so we are going to have a cosy evening in the house.
