Ultimate Christmas Dinner Guide With HelloFresh...

It is starting to look a bit like Christmas, everywhere you go!

Happy Tuesday Friends. Are you starting to plan Christmas?

If you are a regular reader, you will know I am!! 

It takes me ages to decide what I will be making for Christmas Dinner, even though every year we have a similar meal.

What kind of Turkey are we having this year? Fresh or frozen? Stuffing on the side or in the Roast?  Maybe try a 3 bird roast? It will probably be Turkey and stuffing balls. Or not!!

What kind of sides will I be making? Honey roasted parsnips? Honey roasted carrots? Pigs in blankets? Yorkshire pudding? Sprouts. 

Shall we have mashed potatoes or roast potatoes or both? 

What kind of veg will we all be wanting this year? Mushy peas? Sweetcorn? Peas?  Broccoli? Cauliflower? More sprouts? 

Will I make too much? Probably...

It can be a big worry this Christmas Dinner malarky. Don't you agree?!

If you're getting into a panic about Christmas too, never fear as HelloFresh has come up with this Ultimate Christmas Dinner Guide. ( HelloFresh is a weekly meal plan food subscription box and you can read my review here: HelloFresh Recipe Box Review. )

The Christmas Dinner Guide gives you everything you need to know about preparing for your Christmas feast, including all-important timings and fail-safe recipes, some of which can be made in advance.

How cool!?

I have my hands on a copy as I type!

Slow Cooker for the Cabbage:

Did you know you could slow cook your red cabbage? I love this idea! Frees up space on the hob for other things.

Get ahead:

By getting your root vegetables ready the night before you can save lots of time on Christmas day. Prior preparation prevents panic!!

3 Steps To Perfection:

Did you Know There are 3 steps to the perfect potatoes? Parboiling, hot oil and lots of salt. Delicious.

I better not give any more tips away as you can visit the site and download the Cheatsheet and use it for yourself on Christmas Day: Here is the Ultimate Christmas Dinner Guide.
