The best way to spread Christmas cheer…

…is singing loud for all to hear, according to Buddy the Elf (our toddler watched that movie everyday last December, but devastatingly we haven’t had one single viewing this December, so I’m desperate to watch it. Will save it for Christmas eve). If you’re not as interested in singing as you are in eating (me!), then perhaps the best way to spread love and warmth this season is to share a meal with people you love. That’s sort of the essence of it, isn’t it? When you strip away all the presents and the consumerist anxiety, that’s what it’s about. That’s the greatest pleasure of it for me – Dad’s turkey roll and Christmas trifle are worth waiting a whole year for – so I hope you’re all looking forward to that too. This week the order cut off for delivery is still Wednesday, but we will be delivering on Saturday the 23rd, and in the AM of Sunday the 24th, to bring you some delicious meals to have in the fridge if all the Christmas food gets a bit much. There is still time for making gingerbread and nursing a box of Quality Street on your lap whilst taking in the special sight of twinkle lights sparkling on the tree. Now that’s Christmas cheer.

  1. Thanks so much for the beautiful Christmas cookies in our box this week, Dish and Spoon family! I, like many Americans, associate Christmas not with puddings, but with Christmas cookies, which are typically frosted and decorated. I haven’t had a chance to do any Christmas baking yet, but gingerbread Aussie animals are coming soon for the lollipop lady and office staff at my children’s school. Annabelle wants to do frosting! I’m baking Thursday night so they are fresh for the last day of school Friday, so frosting might be pushing the envelope.

    P.S. We love Elf at our house too, watched it two weeks ago but may well watch it again on Christmas Eve. My personal Christmas viewing is original 1965 How the Grinch Stole Christmas cartoon (look it up!) and A Charlie Brown Christmas, also from the 60s.

    1. So glad you enjoyed them, Lauren! I’m so jealous of the American Christmas ‘cookie exchange’. Do you think we could get it to take off here?! PS can’t wait for Christmas eve screening of Elf, even if the small girl won’t watch it with me 🙂 Have a lovely Christmas! XXX
