I love looking over other people's shopping lists but I think we may be the most boring people ever. I look at all the gorgeous Christmas food and drink and then walk on by. Neither dh or I drink very much so if I buy any nice alcohol it just gets left in the cupboard until the following year. Dh does not snack AT ALL so if I bought nibbles it would be just me (try to encourage DC not to snack too) which is no fun and I also don't want to be the size of a house. We are complete creatures of habit so I will buy nice cheeses and then completely forget about them until i find them again festering at the back of the fridge.
My shopping list just looks like that of a roast dinner:
Potatoes
Carrots
Sprouts
Red cabbage
White cabbage
Bacon
Onions
Chicken thighs (to pre make gravy)
Goose fat
Cream
Sausages
Bacon

It must only be me who hates left overs, I buy just enough for the meal/occasion as I don't like eating the same thing 5 days in a row. I'm waiting for my sil to give me a list of things to buy for as I offered to bring part of the meal. Not sure if I'm doing starters or puds yet but I imagine some snacks, drinks and nibbles will make it to the trolley.

Star2015 here's the gingerbread trifle recipe I'm using, however it's the first time I've used it so fingers crossed. I'm not making the custard from scratch as suggested by the recipe, I'm using good old birds from a tin. The custard has to be quite thick and I find I make my home made custard too thin and then it gets too watery.
