Seasons Greetings, Snack Army!
I am not sure how its happened but its the 1st of December tomorrow which means only one thing.. Its Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas.
I, like many others, are mad on all festivities - The food, the tree, the food, the songs, the food, the lights, the food.. Did I mention, THE FOOD? I don't know about you but I think its one of, if not the best part of Christmas - Although I am now sick of the sight of dried fruit.. I've got 8 Brandy laden Xmas Cakes maturing, 2 Puddings and more jars of Mincemeat than you can Ho Ho Ho at. My kitchen is overrun.. And yet I still can't wait until its time to make my annual Gingerbread House, Yule Log and a whole host of other goodies! We don't do Christmas by halves in my house!
With all that, surely there is no need to buy anything from the Supermarkets? Well.. This year there is every excuse as I, your resident Snack Warrior will be bringing you The 24 Days of Snackmas - A festive food review every day up until the big day itself! There will be Drinks, there will be Desserts, Party Food to Panettone, Sandwiches to Stollen, and then some.. With the obligatory overload of Turkey, Stuffing and Cranberry thrown in along the way - If you're not repulsed by the thought of anything remotely Christmassy, come the 25th, I will be mightily disappointed!
So hang on to your Baubles, Folks - Go locate the Xmas boxes in the loft, deck your halls, trim a tree and mentally prepare yourself for the yearly nervous breakdown when trying to untangle the Fairy Lights as Santa is on his way.. As is Snackmas! See you tomorrow, with Jingle Bells on!
