Week TEN of #organisedchristmas ?
My favourite part of Christmas is the food ? So it won’t come as a surprise that I find planning the Christmas menu a true pleasure! I know that some of you might have rolled your eyes at that ? but I am such a foodie that if someone took the pressies away at Christmas and it was a just a celebration of good food then I would be as happy as a pig in muck!

So this week I want you to think about your Christmas meal plan ?
⭐️ How you approach this depends on your own individual preferences. I personally mark Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day as special eating days ? So this means that we get extra treats and posher grub than normal. By marking your special food days it will stop you over ordering and for me it also means it stops me from overeating into the New Year! Sit down and plan your food and make sure you keep to budget. Really important to keep it all in perspective and not let the costs spiral out of control.

⭐️ TOP TIP if you are ordering a turkey please make sure it fits in your oven ? and if you are buying a frozen one work out how long it will take to defrost and mark this on your calendar. Who remembers that episode of the Royle Family where Dave is in the bath with the turkey whilst it defrosts?! ?

⭐️ Oh and a little heads up I know some supermarkets have already released their xmas delivery dates and some of you have booked it already. But Tesco release theirs on 26th November (this is the priority slots for people who are signed up to the delivery saver) ⭐️ If you want to reserve a slot but don’t know your menu yet …. just whack a load of cava into the trolley and amend it at a later date.

Until next week everybody ?
