HelloFresh Ultimate Christmas Dinner Guide

Up until a few years ago I’d never cooked a Christmas dinner; never even thought about it, in fact. Since The Husband & I met almost thirteen years ago, we’d always alternated Christmas & Boxing Day between our families; so there was no need for me to cook Christmas dinner. I did cook at home once; the year we officially moved into our first place together and thought it would be nice to spend it at home, just the two of us.

Then when we moved to our forever home and basically took over the house from my late in-laws, it was about time for us to host Christmas dinner. Really, a Christmas dinner is just a bigger, maybe more effort put into, version of a Sunday roast! I was actually really looking forward to cooking for everyone; six of us in total. I’m a planner in general so one of my first things to plan for that Christmas, was dinner. I didn’t really do anything than I would for a normal Sunday roast, except for the addition of braised red cabbage.

Preparation is key

I took shortcuts, including premade pigs in blankets, frozen Yorkshire puddings, packet stuffing, and gravy granules! Last year though, the Christmas dinner I cooked was very Slimming World friendly and I made practically everything from scratch. From scratch cooking takes a lot of planning and preparation, but it does reap reward. I haven’t really been feeling it this year and at one point I was considering just ordering everything ready to stick in the oven!
