Except on the dress of a Faery Queen… So (one version) of the saying goes. How completely incorrect! Look how they demonstrate the perfect balance of pre-Christmas treats right there on the Christmas dish 😉
Chocolate truffles dressed up as Brussels sprouts from Asda alongside Fox’s Glacier Mints.
These Christmas Dish posts are evolving. Something homemade may even appear at some point, but for just now we’re adding one of our festive recipes each day. Today: Vegan Bread Sauce (goes well with the sprouts).

These may or not make it to the daily changing Christmas dish… Actually they’re more likely to be saved for part of Christmas dinner 🙂
From Vegan Supermarket GreenBay (online and in store), vegan Camembert and Herbes de Provence! They have many other gourmet and hard to find vegan products… go see!
White chocolate coins, £1 from Asda. And beside them on the coffee table, bringing social justice to Pride and Prejudice: Longbourn.
From the Co-op 🙂
We’re eating lots of carrot soup and reading The Telling.
And enjoying the beautiful low winter sun as it lights the trees…
Oh the products! Hardly a day goes by without us hearing of a new one or two or twenty-six 🙂
Above is the Morrison’s Red Velvet Cupcake (they have chocolate ones too). Lebkuchen hearts and tarts from Aldi in the background.
Let’s all remember to eat some vegetables too.
And read books. Currently enjoying The Child
Also: Great Crowns of Stone.
And seriously: remember, remember, the broccoli of November!
Aldi Scottish Raspberry and Pineapple Tarts. Scotland only. Wee squashes v reasonable too 🎃
Beautiful apple, kale and bramble (blackberry) juice above.
The wonderful summer has produced SO many apples, so many that a branch snapped under the weight! They’re perfectly ripe now so we’re busy juicing and making pies and chutney. And just eating them… that’s probably the best. Badger and deer are clearing up the windfalls.
We’ve also been enjoying semi-blended soups just now consisting of ingredients such as tatties from garden, carrots, leek, garlic, broccoli, parsnips and peppercorns. Similar to this root soup recipe over on frugal.
Also: these are very good 🙂
