I’m already thinking of planning the next few weeks menu and putting away its and bits. Our shopping day falls on Christmas day that week… and there’s no way I’m going to be caught in the last minute madness… so I’m going to shop for two weeks the week before.
I’m starting to get nervous now… there seems to be more things to do than there are days now… and everything costs money. Are you prepared for the ho ho ho holidays?
Tuesday 4th – Tortillas + Gypsy creams (and some for the biscuit tin)
Wednesday 5th – Roasted vegetable stew + Dark sticky gingerbread men (I have a new mould weeeeeeeee!)
Thursday 6th – Pork and beans + No egg brownies
Friday 7th – Fish and chips + a quick fruitcake…with left over dried fruit after we made the Christmas cake
Saturday 8th – Vegetable and bacon pie + Gingerbread biscuits… practice for edible tree decorations
Sunday 9th – Shepard’s pie + Sponge with mock cream and jam filling
Monday 10th – Mix and Match Monday + may make some mini blancmanges in the new mould 😀 because its cute 😀
What we’re getting on our weeks 20 points: Golden syrup (4 points), tin of baked beans (4 points), Weetabix (4 points) and a tin of SPAM (8 points) <<< we don’t really need the spam this week as such, but its a nice bunch of sandwiches on a cold lunchtime or some spam fritters if we’ve been out in the ice…. failing that I’ll snaffle it away for another week. Always useful.
