One of the most common questions i’m asked at this time of year is what I cook for Christmas Dinner and how I organise it all.
We’re a pretty traditional bunch when it comes to the festive feast, but we need to include a vegetarian option for Matthew, plus I like to exercise a bit of creativity by trying a few new side dishes to mix things up a little.
In terms of staying calm my main advice is to do as much cooking and prep in advance as possible. Having a stash of sides, gravy and desserts ready to go really takes the pressure off and means you’ll actually have time to spend with your family.
Writing out a time plan is also essential, especially if you’re getting stuck into the tipples early doors! Stick the plan to the fridge door, set little alarms to go off to remind you to put things in the oven and it’ll keep everything on track. It’s just a glorified Sunday Roast after all….
You can find my Christmas Dinner planner over on Parentdish in case you wanted to get yourself sorted before the big day next week.

Good luck with getting it all sorted and I hope you have a fabulous Christmas holiday!
