Deck The Halls - Christmas 2012 Meal Plan

Tuesday, 20 November 2012

It's that time of year again, a year ago I posted my Christmas 2011 Meal Plan and detailed all the delicious goodies we were going to eat to celebrate the festive season. I've done a similar plan for this year as we like to keep to our traditions. We are really looking forward to marking the first day of Advent by 'decking the halls' on December 1st, decorating the house and setting up the Christmas tree together before watching a nice festive film and enjoying a delicious mug of "snowman soup"!

I've been storing away goodies to decorate our home-made Gingerbread houses with, this year I have decided that I'm going to have one for the children to decorate and then keep one for myself to decorate on my own. I have a fab simple and delicious Gingerbread man recipe that I use every year. On Christmas Eve I will once again set up the dining table with bowls of sweets and icing and let the kids decorate their house however they want, and then we'll all share it over Christmas and break off bits as and when we fancy some!

While we're on the subject, if anyone in the BA15 and surrounding area is looking for a high quality home-made and large Gingerbread House kit to take home and build with their family, you can purchase one from Eva's Kitchen in Bradford on Avon. They are priced at £12 without sweets, and £15 with sweets. They are also available as Chocolate Houses, in either milk or white and can be ordered now ready for pick up or delivery closer to Christmas. There is a special Christmas offer on at the moment of one Gingerbread House kit, one Chocolate House kit and six hand decorated Christmas cupcakes for only £30, you can email her at to order yours.

Now I've planned our meals I can write our grocery list, so as soon as the Christmas delivery slots are available I can order my shopping and have it delivered to my door. This will also mean less waste, which of course can only be a good thing.

Right, now on with our Christmas 2012 Meal Plan -

Monday 24th December {Christmas Eve}
Breakfast - Pancakes & waffles with various toppings (syrups, sauces, chocolate chips, fruit & cream etc)
Lunch - Sandwiches with various fillings, crisps (potato chips) and fruit.
Dinner - A yummy Mexican inspired buffet with chicken fajitas, quesadillas and cheesy nachos.
Dessert will be home-made mince pies or sticky toffee pudding and custard, and after decorating our Gingerbread houses, before bedtime we will all enjoy Candy Cane Cookies (freshly baked that day by me and the children) with our hot chocolate stirrers and marshmallows.

Tuesday 25th December {Christmas Day}
Breakfast - Pain au chocolat, crepes, and croissants with jam.
Lunch - Roast Turkey crown served with sprouts, leek, cabbage, broccoli, carrots, swede, two potato mash, cauliflower and accompanied by pigs in blankets, onion rings, sausage meat & stuffing and cranberry sauce, topped off with thick turkey gravy. Dessert will be chocolate fudge cake and cream.
Dinner - Leftovers (meaning, everything we had for lunch, in the form of a sandwich) and probably lots of chocolates and treats.

Wednesday 26th December {Boxing Day}
Breakfast - Eggs & bacon, with sausages, hash browns, baked beans, fried onions, tomatoes and toast. Possibly a little bubble & squeak too depending on what is leftover from Christmas Day.
Lunch - Sandwiches with various fillings, crisps and fruit.
Dinner - Ploughman's - mashed potatoes, cold meats and salad.
