Monday meal ideas: Christmas prep for the weeks ahead

You guys, it’s the 2nd December. It’s hurtling towards the end of the year and there’s nothing much ANY of us can do about it! Daisy finishes school this coming Thursday and for the other girls there is lots of presentations, info nights, rehearsals of this and that to go to…we’re here, in the end of year madness, somehow?!

Perhaps you like to give teachers or friends some home made presents? If so you might have a spare 34 minutes this week (not likely I know) to get stuck into some cooking. Here are some of my fave things that can be made and gifted, or just enjoyed and given to people (or yourself) this festive season. Don’t stress about not having made your Christmas cake weeks ago, just do it!

Lemon Curd
Pickled cucumbers
Mini quiches
Christmas fruitcake

How is your week ahead looking? I must say, I am a little nervous looking at ours! Rob is away for work in Tasmania all week, I have a LOT of end off year stuff, a busy shop and other works deadlines to meet. It’s going to make me feel ALIVE that’s for sure! Hope you all have a good one too friends, stay cool, calm and collected. And we will here this morning…it’s bloody 1 degree outside!

Have a good one friends…we’re getting there!
