 So whilst I have being organising my own Christmas lunch which isn’t for a lot of people I was wondering what could be done to save money but not let on to your friends and family members that you have.

My Traditional Christmas Dinner – Part 1

To kick off my traditional Christmas dinner it has to start with a traditional starter to get every body ready for the turkey main course. To make life easier and to enjoy your christmas menu even more I have opted for a traditonal prawn cocktail. This is a fantastic starter to do and has been a popular favourite since the 1970’s and is one of my wife’s all time favourites.

 

So this week I will be talking you through all the Christmas dinner food that you need to prepare.
