  • Have 18 mince pies in the freezer and a box with 2 in it in the kitchen press. So I'll be grand for a bit on that score.

  • Very little remaining here. Last few bits finished this week. I’m suffering withdrawal symptoms! Theres remnants of several tubs of quality street and roses that aren’t our households favourites tucked in one box. Nothing else except booze but we’d keep a running cabinet anyways and it’s nothing that wouldn’t get drunk over the next few months anyways




  • oh just found a slab of O'Conaill's milk choc.. twas part of a hamper.. will defo tuck into that tonight

    its really just the mince pies I miss.. got sprouts in Tesco yesterday - yipee.. (v sad times when that's a highlight - but I love them)




  • NB I was not expecting that huge hamper or any of the wondrous gifts so not all me.... in fact only the Celebrations and one Christmas pudding

    6 mince pies

    2 Christmas puddings.

    One 800 gm tin of Heroes.

    Large box Milk Tray

    Box of Celebrations

    Cheese crackers. ( cheese all gone)

    Various biscuits.

    2 boxes of easy peelers.

    Various bits lurking.

    Oh a large chunk of raw turkey and a turkey dinner in the freezer.


    I only ever eat 3 chocolates at one time ie once a day so these will last a while...




  • From memory:
    I bag of chocolate coins
    1/2 tin of Hero's
    1/2 box of Cadbury eclairs
    850 gram of Dairy milk [1.87lbs for the yanks ;) ]
    3 selection boxes
    3 x large Bourneville bars
    2 homemade pudding which I made with my own fair hands but keep forgetting to steam for another two hours prior to any guest arriving.
    Case of beer and cider




  • Alcohol. We have stock of that through the year anyway, we usually restock around Christmas.

    I don't buy Celebrations, Roses or similar because we usually get them anyway (and they are disgusting imo). Other stuff is bought as needed so not much is left on 3rd of January.

  • Still have loads of chocolate left. We didn't buy it, it was all bought for us by people over Christmas. Happens every year, we actually have to sort it all out by the best before date and work out way through it. I think it was july or August before we got through it last year.




  • Currently finishing the last of the Lindt and I have a ham defrosting. Think that’s it then.

    Keep an eye on the best before date a lot of the Christmas chocolates are made so far in advance they tend to have an expiry date of Feb/March 2021.

    Yep we always organise it it to eat or way through the stuff which will go off first. Tunnocks Tea Cakes always do be gone off come February so are always the first to be eaten.




  • Just finished my last stollen. Be October (I think) before It'll be back in Lidl again :(

    Though given the damage it does to my waistline that probably not a bad thing :)

    Lovely weather lately for walking. So I’m with you have the treats get for your walks and enjoy it all :)

  • Think I have-

    A tin of quality street, a tub of quality street, a box of celebrations, (nearly) a box of ferrero rocher, a box of Dairy Box, 2 mini puddings, and a bottle of Baileys.

    I'll be cracking the Baileys open for Rudolph Day on the weekend of the 25th. :)

    what's Rudolph day? another excuse to indulge i hope lol...




  • ... and a partridge in a pear tree...




  • We put a massive dent in our chocolate and cake reserves this weekend. Very little left, have never seen a tub of quality street get wiped out so fast. Still have all the crisp, party food and alcohol reserves well in place though...

    huh?




  • On 25th of every month you do something Christmassy, like have turkey for dinner, watch a Christmas film, listen to Christmas songs, wear your Christmas socks to work etc. Just to mark the day. It's nothing elaborate. :)
