Bring us some figgy pudding
I like food. This is not news to anyone. I especially like food at Christmas. I love cooking up the big Christmas Day lunch – roast turkey, pigs in blankets, roast potatoes, mashed potatoes, vegetables… all the trimmings.
But my favourite Christmas foods have to be the desserts. I am a sucker for a warm mince pie with cream or custard. Or some Christmas pudding with brandy butter or cream. A nice slice of Christmas Cake or Yule Log or Dundee Cake.
Then there’s all the boxes of biscuits and chocolates that we invariably end up with every year. We buy ourselves maybe one or two then we end up getting gifted some. And every year we say ‘right, we’re not buying anything this year’ and yet we still do… and we end up with a ridiculous amount of Roses, Quality Street, Celebrations and so on.
Not to mention chocolates on the Christmas tree. Candy canes on the Christmas tree.
This is by no means a complaint because I LOVE it, just an observation of one of the many things I love about Christmas!
