Each year1 I impress myself with pulling together so many meal components all at the same time for Christmas. I find this to be surprising as I work without recipes, a schedule or using a timer.

  1. Turkey
  2. Stuffing
  3. Red cabbage
  4. Gravy
  5. Roast potatoes
  6. Glazed carrots
  7. Yorkshire pudding
  8. Chestnut and bacon sprouts
  9. Stuffing balls
  10. Pigs in blankets.

And there’s Christmas pudding and homemade custard to plan in there too.

  1. The one exception that I am not allowed to forget was 2020 when I poured the lovingly curated’ gravy down the sink drain by mistake.↩︎
