Options to make your life easier ~ because, it doesn't need to be that hard!
Oh my word...is that the most stress-filled time of the year or what? And where does most of that stress come from Money - or rather the lack of money!
Everything costs: presents, food and that's just for your family - what about the rest...???
Aunty Joan or Uncle Fred who are 'popping over' for a visit. And that guest - you know the one:
The new BF/GF someone forgot to mention they had, or the new best friend your kids invite over for the day, and what about the lonely work colleague your husband casually invites over two weeks prior. You just know that at least ONE of these people will show up on the day.
It's a lot to cope with and more often that not it falls upon YOUR shoulders to make it work!
CHRISTMAS MADE EASIER ~ FOOD WISE
**GIFTS THAT COST NO MONEY, BUT MEAN A LOT...**
The Christmas Meal
DON'T BE A SLAVE IN THE KITCHEN ON CHRISTMAS DAY...
Got a Slow Cooker? Then Slow cook that ham - the NIGHT BEFORE !!
Turn it off in the morning and it will be beautifully cooked and stay warm enough for the mid day feast. Roasted veges can be partially cooked in the microwave then simple browned in the oven to finish off. Job done in minutes - not hours!
So.... Relax, Enjoy Christmas Day with your Family - not away from them cooking!
