Wishing you a very veggie Christmas!

I'm beginning to regret singing 'Let it Snow' quite so loudly in the car the other day, as it really is deep and crisp and even outside! Brrr. Never mind though, we're snug and warm at home and our Christmas preparations are almost over. Presents have been bought, the tree is looking pretty with our 'vintage' fairy in pride of place, and the cards have been sent out and are now at the mercy of the Royal Mail. Let's hope they arrive by next Christmas!!!

Food-wise, our vegetarian Christmas dinner is well on its way to being prepared. The nut roast and goat's cheese tarts have been made and frozen, the pudding is ready to be steamed and the hamper gifts have been labelled and wrapped. We'll prepare the vegetables on Christmas eve and then everything will be well and truly ready for the big day.

Miss Ony and Miss Kahonie have elfed themselves (and us), have planned their Christmas day outfits and have been busy making some yummy chocolate truffles as presents for the Grandparents.

Meanwhile, I've had a little time to look into the cost of Christmas for the average UK family. According to the What price website, people spend around £67 to feed and water a family of 4 on Christmas day. Now that sounds a lot to me, but without having to worry about the cost of a turkey and other such stuff, I reckon, we'll spend less than half that on our Christmas fayre and that's including a bottle of Champagne (ok, it was on special offer)!

Merry Yuletide Everyone! Pin It

  1. You are so well organised...I still haven't decided on my menu yet!! I'm thinking of doing a chestnut and mushroom pie possibly! I'd better get organised!
