Christmas No. 2 ...

... with family over from Europe. We're getting a little bit full now!

With all the help in the kitchen the meal went smoothly. There was even help in the garden which is a bit wet at the moment, hence the garden footwear to keep the shoes clean.

From garden (parsnips and leeks) to table = 0 food miles.

Leeks in cheese sauce - hmmm!!!

Still one more feast to go then it's Diet Time!

  1. A great idea to keep the shoes clean. How lovely to have a second Christmas.

  3. I too love the use of carrier bags and I bet those leeks were divine.

  4. Ah, you've brought back memories of my uncle doing the bags-over-shoes things years ago... and then sliding head over heels down a flight of wet wooden stairs!

  5. Hope you have a wonderful 2013 mum. I have spotted the unique footwear and think its a brilliant idea, one I may well have to steal when I next go into my muddy front and side gardens!

  6. Hi Mum, many thanks for the answers - I've put those away for next year!! Happy New Year!
