The Ultimate Christmas Dinner Guide with HelloFresh & Giveaway

The Ultimate Christmas Dinner Guide with HelloFresh & Giveaway

Are you the one hosting Christmas Dinner this year? Are you the organised type or “last minute panic” kind of person? Whatever your pre Christmas Dinner worries are, lovely people from HelloFresh got you covered this year with their Ultimate Christmas Dinner Guide.

I think I’m pretty organised when it comes to hosting big or small family gatherings. Whether there are just 4 of us or other family members as well, I got it.  I put it down to years of practice and learning from my own mistakes (and there were a few) πŸ™‚ .

I’m quite a traditional person when it comes to Christmas Dinner and love the classic roast with all the trimmings. We tend to jazz it up from year to year and go from turkey to beef to goose. The festive roast is an absolute must though!

Last couple of years we settled for turkey as children prefer it over other meats. I also love getting all inventive in the kitchen when it comes to leftovers and turkey yields a lot!

    We are being extremely controversial and having Christmas curries. We did it last year and it took all the pressure off on Christmas day as we did all the cooking the day before. We’ll have turkey tikka masala and two veggie curries. And then I’ll make a roast just for our little family on another day!
