Christmas food

This year was a Delia Christmas - although I did cheat on her briefly with Nigella.

It all started with the cake, pudding & mincemeat back in November and culminated in the Boxing Day leftover feast.

Mince pies and cake.

I bought Delia's Christmas book and I can see it's going to become a firm favourite - and not just for Christmas. As well as the mince pies, pudding and cake I used her book for the bread sauce, cranberry sauce, turkey, sausage rolls, stuffing and for all the timings on the day.

Mince pies and sausage rolls.

That cheating I mentioned? I made Nigella's Fully Festive Ham (from Feast) on Boxing Day and it was gorgeous.

Ham nearly done apart from the final glazing and stint in the hot oven.

No wonder I needed a glass of champers after that lot.

It all looks lovely! I used the good old Dairy cookbook. The old version not the new one. Hubby even made a yule log from it!
