It seems as if Halloween came and went in a flash! We hope you enjoyed our spooky snack suggestions. With pumpkin-based-everything now out the way, it’s got us thinking about the imminent Christmas Day food preparations. We caught up with some of our favourite bloggers, who shared with us their Christmas Day cooking traditions.
Rachel, Mummy in Training: My husband’s family are polish so we celebrate Wigilia on Christmas eve, with a big fish-based meal and other polish treats!
Lucy, Little Luxury Foods: My family Christmas tradition is having all our favourite foods. We don’t do traditional Turkey dinner! For me, it’s steak, homemade chips and creamy spinach.
Jane, Hedge Combers: Our best family tradition? The blokes do all the cooking and I take my Mum out for a walk on Christmas morning.
Laura, Waffle Mama: Every Christmas Eve we have a tea with lots of different meats and cheeses with olives, pate and all that jazz. On Christmas Day we always start the day with Cadbury’s chocolate of some kind and presents, then usually a bacon sandwich for breakfast. Christmas lunch must be traditional turkey with all the trimmings and the choice of about five puddings, then a buffet tea that nobody needs but eats anyway!
Francesca, The Parent Social: I do everything for Christmas except cooking! It kicks off with smoked salmon sandwiches and Prosecco for breakfast. For Christmas dinner, it’s my dad’s job to do a lobster starter, followed by beef wellington a la my husband! We finish with Italian Christmas cake and have different wines with each course.
Kate, Family Fever: We always toast marshmallows on Christmas Eve! The kids love it. We toast the marshmallows and then sprinkle the reindeer food and get a snack ready for Santa.
Thanks to all for sharing with us! Now to delegate cooking tasks ahead of the big day…
