Christmas is about so many things. Family, giving, loving but there's no doubt that what we eat on the day is also very important. (Some would say it ranks as one of the most important things - but each to their own.)
The clothes we wear on Christmas Day also play a big role too. Stretchy, comfy, movable clothing is what we need. Because nothing will be worse on December 25th than waking up and not eating enough because your clothes are too tight and you fear being uncomfortable. Nothing. (Ok, ok, a slight exaggeration...)
Anyway, if you are hosting your own Christmas luncheon, breakfast, dinner, or snack time with your family and friends, you might already have your menu sorted. Heck you might have even been taste testing it for weeks! (In your comfy clothes).
On the other hand though, there might be a whole bunch of you who are not prepared this year, you've been asked to bring a dish and you totally can't cook. And you might only now be realising that there are EIGHT sleeps until Christmas, #Anxietycentral.
However, this is where we've come to help! Below are some Christmas recipes we've stalked and are currently obsessed with. Naturally we hope they cater to people of all cooking levels and help ease the burden of looking for inspiration yourself.
Because tis' the season to make room in our bellies for all of the Christmas feasting!
And whether you're hosting or merely arriving as a guest there's no doubt that in just over a week we'll all be doing a lot of eating...and maybe nursing a food hangover the morning after.
Ps. if you are still stressed that Christmas is on the horizon and you are not as prepared as you might like to be, we highly recommend reading our helpful tips to help you stress less this festive season...also; it might be best to shop for all of your presents online.
