Food, Glorious, Food!

Help me Lord, I am making my own Christmas dinner this year...

Just take a while & let that soak in.

Before I left home I could just about manage to cook a microwave meal & beans on toast. Granted, my cooking skills have improved slightly since living away from home for nearly 4 years, but I'm not exactly Master Chef, so this is going to be challenging. To say the least.

Above is my mum's version of a Christmas table - I don't think I'll ever underestimate the power of a Mum on Christmas Day again. It's only the 18th and still I'm getting cold sweats about cooking a roast on the 25th.

So I've been looking around for some nice ways of prettifying our table & some recipes to make it (hopefully) an extra special & tasty meal.

*already drooling at the thought of honey roasted parsnips, mash potatoes & stuffing*

Looking around it seems that M&S, Next and the BBC Good Food guide will be the only way I'll get through the festive season alive, and without giving myself food poisoning.

M&S and Next have lots of cute bowls/napkins/glasses/placemats - which I'll definitely be looking into! And, I've tried a couple of 'Good Food' recipes and can confirm that they are tasty! So hopefully, that will help me cook my turkey to perfection :)

In the mean time, does anyone have an tips on how to achieve tasty veggies, perfect spuds or yummy gravy? 

'Cause I would love to know!
