Step 1 put up the Xmas tree and decorate the house – Check

Step 2 plan the Xmas lunch menu -Check

Step 3 Xmas gift shopping – well I’ve started but still have a long way to go so no check there, but in my defence there are still 19 sleeps till Xmas so plenty of time left. Plus it just wouldn’t feel right If I was too organised, that’s just not me. 😜😜😜

Another Christmas over

Christmas is finally over what a relief!! Christmas Eve at mums was just lovely – I know I have probably already mentioned this before but I prefer Christmas Eve to Christmas Day and even though this year my gorgeous nephew was missing , we still had a wonderful night.

Christmas Day was wonderful too though, we got perfect weather and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. The food was plentiful – in fact we had so much left over that I won’t need to cook for the rest of the week. The turducken I am happy to report was surprisingly nice and moist and even though I couldn’t really taste the duck, the turkey and chicken was nice so was the stuffing. My brother in law took photos of the Turducken he was really impressed with it. Christmas Day finally came to an end at 9:30pm. I was exhausted but very happy.

I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas too.

Turducken!!!

We are on the home stretch now, only two sleeps till Christmas!! Dare I say it I am almost ready. The house is clean, the presents all wrapped, the food has been brought. All that remains is some final tweaking and of course the cooking, but I am lucky to have my mummy and my sister helping me with all of that. We are having the traditional roast pork and roast lamb and just for something different I am also going to be roasting a turducken, which for those of you that don’t know, is a chicken wrapped in duck wrapped in Turkey! What I want to know is who on earth comes up with this stuff? Hopefully it will taste nice, who knows it may even become part of the Christmas tradition.
