Shop bought Mulled Wine

Standard

Shopping in ASDA last weekend, no I am not sponsored, as I try to avoid the shops as we get nearer to Christmas, as I can’t stand the chaos, I saw that ASDA were doing Mulled Wine for £2.75.

It was delicious, definitely a bargain and worth the price.

The Turkey Breast Joint and Gammon Joint we purchased from Iceland’s was nice too, not dry just lovely and tender.

We haven’t tried our mini Christmas puddings or cakes yet but we will try those in a couple of days.

I did like Tesco Cranberry Sauce was nice with the Turkey, worth a pound, and the vegetables and the potatoes in goose fat were lovely, and all done in the oven, not one item was cooked on the hob.

It was a lovely tasty meal.

I was so stuffed afterwards I couldn’t eat another thing, so waited a bit later to have a mince pie with a cup of tea.

Christmas Day went really well and looking forward to today, as we are off to my mums to see Henry’s cousins and to celebrate Christmas some more.

Many thanks for reading,

Meal Planning at Christmas

Standard

This year my husband will be cooking dinner, I do cook too, but when it comes to roast dinners my husband is the chef in our house.

We already have our Turkey in the freezer, we have gone for a frozen turkey breast from Iceland’s, the grocery store.

When it comes to planning our meals we buy it ahead of time, to miss the Christmas rush and then it just the case of cooking it all and serving.

I don’t like to rush around and so getting Christmas food already is the key to stop any overwhelming problems.

Then it is gift wrapping, I like to do it altogether and I am planning on doing my wrapping these next two day’s, it will be fun as I got to look after my son at the same time and he probably want to play catch or some other activity but we see how we go.

I have even found some mini Christmas cakes from Tesco’s yesterday and some mini Christmas puddings aswell. The Christmas cakes were £2 and the little Christmas Puddings were a pound.

I came across this video about meal planning for Christmas. Check it out below:

So I wish you all have fabulous Christmas and don’t panic it is only one day a year.

Many thanks for reading,
