|A lot of bread sauce for the two of us on our honeymoon!|
First off, Christmas just isn't Christmas for me if I can't have Bread Sauce with my Christmas Dinner, and enough of it to have leftovers to add to Boxing Day sandwiches, or just eat out of the bowl with a spoon. And it has to be proper bread sauce; none of this packet nonsense. I usually find that people who say they don't like bread sauce have never tried the real, homemade stuff. If that's you, then now's your year, folks. I use Delia's Traditional Bread Sauce recipe. It's simple and delicious, and I pretty much know it off by heart now.
I wouldn't be without my meat thermometer either. I suspect that getting food poisoning over Christmas would be a sure fire way of ruining the holiday, so it's a great way of checking that the meat is cooked. Mine came in a box with the right temperatures on the side, which saves me from having to check every time.
Moving away from food now, another big part of the Christmas period is the telly, so I like to have a Radio Times Christmas Issue. Even though we don't have an aerial, so don't often watch live tv, and would probably miss the start of any programme anyway, I like looking through the magazine to see what's going to be on, and what we can catch on iPlayer later on. I used to love that moment, as a child, when Dad would come into the house with the Christmas Radio Times. It was time to grab a pen and start circling all the things we wanted to watch, and then to start working out what we would have to record to watch later when things began to clash. And that was with only 4 channels!
And finally, that vital piece of Christmas kit, is glitter glue! It's a marvel. No glitter floating around, getting into every crevice, every nook, into eyes and hair and nappies. Just sparkly designs, easily applied to every Christmas craft. Perfect!
