Today it’s the last Monday before Christmas. Can you believe that this time next week we will all be sitting around in a mess of paper and presents? How?! And I wonder what those presents will be…not even I know! Yes, I still have quite a bit of shopping to get done. Shit. When will I ever learn to get prepared?!

If you are organised and all have the presents sorted, but are still looking for some ideas for food I am here to help! I have ALL of the food, all the ideas for ALL OF THE THINGS. Here we go!

And happy cooking to you all…may your pavs rise, your pork crackle, your prawns peel well and you enjoy every little morsel.
