Don’t we all have our Christmas food faves? There are certain items you just love and it wouldn’t be Christmas without them.
Every household is different and every family. Some people have bread sauce, some cranberry for us it’s two (or even) three different types of gravy. Yes, two-three different gravies. Interesting I know…
1. Maraschino Cherries
It just isn’t Christmas without every drink in our house having a maraschino cherry in it. It reminds me of going to my Nan’s house and to join in with the adults at Christmas we’d be allowed one with our pop.
I know it’s not the most sophisticated of beverages but I just love a little glass of Babycham at Christmas. The fawn is a vintage fans fave and with a cherry in (as above), it might as well be 1953 (the year it launched). Pass me the 50s gown and pearls and I’ll be off entertaining with a Babycham in hand.
3. Quality Street
Launched in 1936, Quality Streets are your staple five-a-day over the festive season. I love it when you run out of the good ones so have to make the decisions of which second tier chocs to go for.
I hope I’m not the only one who loves a Snowball at Christmas? It’s a mixture of Advocaat and Lemonade and is only good at Christmas. I think you’d be mad to drink it any other time of year!
5. Party Food
Small, fat filled, pastry perfect bites. Anything on a stick and anything to share. Every Christmas Eve my Mum cooks a little party food buffet for all of us and also the visitors we may get. I love it, picking and choosing, laughing and drinking. The perfect way to be merry. My fave always has and always will be mini sausage rolls….
