We love a summer Christmas, but it can easily get out of hand!
Especially as you begin to shop for all the things you need on the day. If you don’t have a clear menu and plan about what you are going to cook, you can very easily blow the budget by adding a little bit here and a little bit there. All those incidental purchases add up! Not to mention waste, it’s a huge bug-bear of mine! Not just wasted food, but wasted money and time traipsing all over the place getting bits and bobs!
As always, we are here to help. With our friends at Recipes+ we’ve created some super luscious Christmas meal plans to suit many styles of celebrations you can enjoy with your loved ones this season.
You can enjoy the delights of a light and easy Outdoor style menu, cooking the Stuffed Turkey on the barbecue, adding sides and all accompaniments, including Red Velvet Ice Cream Cake for dessert from as little as $9.95 per person for a family of 10!
If a smorgasbord of heavy foods isn’t up your alley then try a Festive Brunch menu of punch, Christmas tree wraps, tomato baubles and a sausage wreath. This finger food spread will serve 8 people for $9.10 per person.
Despite temperatures in the 30’s I can’t resist a full on roast with all the trimmings. Mouth watering citrus-salt crusted pork roast, a cranberry trifle loaf and a bruscetta gazpacho will serve 8 people for $9.10 per person.
