Cook up a Storm:
One thing everyone looks forward to at Christmas time is the food. Sitting around the table, with your loved ones, eating as much as you can until you’re full – then probably a little bit more. So, to ensure your food goes off without a hitch there are a few things you can do:
– Purchase your food in advance to avoid the last minute rushes in stores. More popular items, such as Turkey, will be harder to come by the closer you get to Christmas, so plan ahead and you’ll be fine!
– Practice makes perfect – especially when it comes to cooking. If you plan to cook your own food, why not do a practice run or two to make sure you know what you’re doing? This is a sure fire way to take the stress out of the big day.
– If someone else or a service is taking care of this for you, make sure you get everything organised as soon as possible.
Don’t overlook the Admin:
Most importantly, get yourself orgainsed! Make sure all your guests are invited and you know how many people are coming. This will inform how much food you get, how many chairs you need etc. Having everything organised will make your life so much easier!
