My Christmas Lists Part 1 - Christmas Day Shopping List : Food & Drink


Now then, the festive season is almost upon us, so I am beginning to compile my lists of what we need for each occasion. I thought with that in mind that it might be useful to blog my shopping lists, present ideas and all such stuff for the festivities as a kind of ticklist for everyone to use.

We've all been there - Christmas morning and no goose fat for the roast potatoes, or come to that, no turkey!! Yes, that has happened to us - everyone thought someone else was doing the turkey. Oh dear. To avoid such disaster and to help everything go smoothly, I am kicking things off with the Christmas Day shopping list.
