So you’ve made your menu and you’ve booked marked all the recipes. Now you need to get all those recipes to hand and make the list. Write down every last ingredient you need, and every piece of equipment. Then like Santa Claus go over that list again. Once you are happy, take your list, and put it in your hand bag or coat pocket and start picking up every item you can. Fill your store cupboards, your freezer, your shed or wherever you keep your food until everything is ticked off the list. Then check the list and your stores to ensure it is all present and accounted for; trust me the last thing you need to be doing Christmas Eve is trying to find a turkey.
When your list is done, then you can grab yourself a glass of your favourite beverage and relax, safe in the knowledge that you are almost ready to conquer Christmas dinner stress free.
