    • Tonight an easy meal, corned beef hash (with poached eggs on top).

      • Steak and mushrooms in a creamy sauce served in a baguette. Served with a glass of fizz. Mince pies and cream for pud.

        I’ve done this for over 30 years as it’s so simple but feels rather special - mainly because we always worked Xmas Eve and there was so much else waiting to be prepared once we got home.
        Ah the luxury of being ‘retired’

        • Veggie burgers with salad and garlic herb potatoes.
          Location....East Midlands.

          • Roast duck with the usual trimmings, Christmas pud with cream. I've not picked any sprouts so far this season, so Mr Snoop will be properly pleased. There are loads of them, big and fat and a lovely green.

            Bon appétit, everyone.
            Location: north-east Spain, where the sun is too hot, the rain too torrential, the hail too big, the wind too windy and the snow too deep. Last frost: usually mid-April, sometimes first week in May. First frost: mid-October.

              • Turkey breast stuffed with duck and Guinea fowl breast, fois gras and apricots and prunes.
                Roast spuds ( ours) , carrots ( ours) and parsnips ( ours) , stuffing with our own sage , apples ( ours)and shallots( ours) plus Calvados. Bread sauce made with brioche and cream. Sprouts and chestnuts.

                Thank goodness I was on a diet!

                Xmas pud, thick birds custard and thick cream followed by cheese and biscuits much later if there is still any space left.

                • Prawn cocktail.

                  Roast duck, parsnips, potatoes, carrots, french beans, broccoli, beetroot and gravy.

                  Christmas pudding and brandy cream.

                  I haven't even room for a cup of coffee yet.

                  • Tonight will be curry with most of yesterday's leftovers thrown in and either rice or naan.

                    Leftover Christmas pudding and brandy cream.

                    • Left overs!
                      No space for the pudding yesterday so we’ll be having that too. Maybe freeze the rest of it. ( …or maybe not!)

                        • Today Mr GF's favourite, prawn, mushroom, sweetcorn, pea and whatever else is lurking in the bottom of the fridge risotto.

                          We had no room yesterday for the last of the Christmas pudding so maybe today..... with brandy cream.

                          • Left overs on butties with dribbled gravy, pickles etc.
                            The rest has gone in the freezer.

                            Xmas pud and custard for pud.
                            I made a deconstructed trifle yesterday and that was lovely and refreshing.
