Two Days 'til Christmas

It’s Christmas Eve Eve – only two days ‘til the big day! How’s the food prep going? I think I'll make my Cranberry and Apricot Puds later, they’ll keep perfectly well in an airtight tin until needed but, other than that, it’s all nice and easy and relaxed here at the moment. I don’t think I’ve ever been quite so organised, but I bet things won’t feel quite so laidback on Christmas morning!
True to my word, I did decorate my cake last Sunday but I’ve just realised that I haven’t put a pic of it on here. To be fair it doesn’t look much different from last year’s but, if you have a winning formula, stick with it; there’s no point in trying to re-invent the wheel. We've already cut into the cake and it's going down very nicely - I hate eating Christmas cake halfway through January so we always start early. (That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!)

Every year I think about doing something different for some of the festive meals, but I seem to always fall back on the old favourites. Maybe that’s the essence of annual celebrations, though; it’s nice to see the dishes which prompt memories and evoke good feelings and it’s also not a great idea to try something new for Christmas lunch when all eyes are on you!

The butter has been out of the fridge to soften for a couple of hours, so I’d better get on with those puds…
