Christmas eve is my favourite day of the year, full of excitement with our little boy, in previous years, weve got our ds into bed then hubby has popped out to collect a takeaway, but seeing as everyone has the same idea the takeaways are normally rammed and you end up with a pile of slop when the chefs can't cope with the rush! So this yearIim thinking of preparing a little spread... but no idea what? Our give ds whatever I know he will eat as I know he'll be too excited to worry about eating food... whats on your xmas eve menu?
Chilli or something in the slow cooker then everyone takes it when they want. I can't plan times as people are calling in and DH usually has to make little visits locking himself in e garage for some assembly work I cook my ham on Christmas Eve so we usually have some of that with bread and nice cheese and chutneys
I just typed a huge reply and the iPad ate it ! I cook and freeze chicken curry and beef stew with dumplings in November. Then they are reheated etc xmas eve and served with crusty and naan breads. Extended family pile over. Cheesy xmas music goes on. Bottles are opened. And xmas starts there for us.
