  1. We have our main meal on chrimbly eve with leftovers on chrimbly day. Last night I was so lazy!!! I just left the leftovers out and the family grazed until it was mostly eaten up!

    1. Christmas food leftovers are the best! I don't blame you for just leaving everything out for everyone to pick at, sounds ideal.

  2. What do you make your haggis with, TD?

    1. I actually buy a ready made one, it's made with oats, kidney beans, lentils, mixed vegetables and seeds. It took me a little while to get used to it, but Dan loves them so I stuck with it.

  3. Can you tell me what's in a shepherdess pie? Thank you

    1. Hi, thanks for dropping by. I've put the recipe into a new post today. Hope you like it!

  4. Aww thank you I am currently veggie going more and more vegan so all recipes help tremendously.

    1. Hope you like it. I do try to post up "everyday" type meals rather than those gorgeous looking things that are nice to look at but I really would never make!
