  1. I, like yourself am spoilt with a very scrumptious lunch and at 37 years of age have also NEVER cooked christmas lunch. However, last year I said that if I was in my new house, which Im not yet, I would have Christmas day at my house. I said it sort of jokingly, thinking my mum would say "No, Never Christmas lunch is my thing!" but she didnt!
    Now I feel guilty for all those years I should have offered. One day Im sure I will do it but for this year she is doing lunch again.
    I also buy her a christmas pinny every year as a little thankyou because Im sure she loves too do it for her babies! Im sure?

  2. Oh, it's me! But I always fail to remember the apron until afterward! And thanks for the ebook link at the side. I always enjoy what you recommend. 🙂

  3. Love the apron. Well I guess I am in charge of this Christmas meal….We haven't done anything formal in awhile as I normally have to work on Christmas. But this year it is on a Saturday soooo I will see what I will be cooking up!

  4. I guess it will be me, amongst the strangeness of a newly inherited kitchen (strange oven – eek), bare plaster and brickwork, stripped floors, unpacked boxes etc! Still, it will be what it will be! We're not traditional turkey and trimmings lovers anyway (last year we had an Italian themed Xmas dinner, anti pasta, lasagne, salad etc!) so who knows what we'll have this year???? With a new house festooned with as many trees, paper chains and decs as I can fill it with to disguise the lack of decor, I have relinquished the idea of this years festivities being perfect – it will be quite ad hoc, and maybe all the better for it?! Who knows!

  6. I am the one in charge, so to say. And I do love the pinny!
    We have a grand breakfast instead of lunch or supper! As we always attend the midnight service plus party afterword, we get in so late, or early, we open gifts and go to bed. Then we get up, have a go at the stockings, then our salmon breakfast with mimosas around 11am.
    We play with our toys and make our phonecalls to reletives then we eat a turkey sandwich supper! We started doing this a few years ago and the kids are gangbusters for it now. So is the husband! He is glad we are not spending all day in the kitchen, to eat in ten minutes and then have a huge mess to clean. Cooking the turkey earlier in the week is helpful too!
