I'm writing a list, checking it twice.

It was a busy busy day yesterday, with 2 weeks worth of food shopping delivered I wanted to prepare a few things to make the following weeks a little bit easier so yesterdays main jobs involved....
  • Getting the turkey out to begin defrosting
  • Cleaning the oven
  • Put the shopping away
  • De-boning 2 chickens & dividing up into tubs of white meat & red
  • 2 meals worth of meat balls made up
  • Made pigs in blankets, put them in a baking tray & put them in the freezer, ready to defrost on Xmas eve.
  • Started making a batch of mincemeat - it is currently sitting, absorbing the flavors ready to cook & Jar tomorrow.
Jobs yet to be done before Christmas....
  • Wrapping the last few presents
  • Writing my Christmas Dinner timetable
  • Writing a couple of cards for the Christmas eve visitors
  • Christmas day food preperation on christmas eve.
  • Bake mince pies
  • Give the house a last thorough clean through, no more housework to be done (except for the dishwasher) until the 27th.
 Woohoo, we're almost ready!!!!
