Saturday will probably be my last food shop before Christmas.
Every year Stella and I fret about vegetables, but I think I have finally reached the point of not caring if there are no sprouts (I hate them) or discovering my parsnips have gone bendy…
Many years ago when Delia’s Christmas book came out it was my Bible and I did everything the Delia way –but these days I try and make it as simple as I can.
The other pressure I put upon myself is making a fresh fruit salad for Christmas day….this year I shall make a raspberry roulade and not worry about the large amounts of double cream
And then there’s fridge and freezer space…
