#5 Blogmas - Favourite Christmas Food

Hey there!

Back again with yet another festive post - I know, I'm just as shocked as you are! I've been so productive recently and I'm really enjoying Blogmas this year. It's always fun to read my favourite bloggers winter posts too - really puts me in the festive mood!

No one likes to admit it, but there's no denying that festive food is one of the main reasons we all love Christmas! Diets and fitness workouts are soon forgotten once the M&S adverts appear on our screens, showing yummy treats that make your mouth water. You just simply can't resist those cheeky, festive treats - it's just not possible! Coming home from a frosty walk home to a frothy, hot chocolate and Christmas cookies. Walking around the Christmas markets with cups of mulled wine, nibbling on sweet, gingerbread men. No Christmas is complete without a huge tub of Roses to munch on, after stuffing yourself with a huge Christmas roast!

#5 - My Favourite Christmas Food

Christmas has always been very different in my house when it comes to my favourite family roast. Most supermarkets at this time are brimming with customers on their mad rush at Tesco's to buy the best freshly, cooked turkey - not me! Most people pile endless meats and hams on their dinner plates, but being a vegetarian Christmas dinner is very different for me. I was never fussed about pigs in blankets and never was a fan of those small frankfurter sausages. 

My favourite Christmas food that just makes my mouth water are roast parsnips - strange I know! I just love the texture of the crispy skin combined with the light, fluffy inside. You can't miss out the seasoning - it's a must, I mean, doesn't that look yummy!

Let's not get carried away with the Christmas dinner, you can't forget about all the other treats that appear at Christmas! Candy canes are my all-time favourite sweet - always hung proudly upon my Christmas tree. I always love receiving candy canes at Christmas - I just love the fresh, peppermint flavour, so I always make sure I send them to my friends in their cards as a sweet treat. Gingerbread men are always fun to decorate on a cold, winter's night. I love to make these with my younger brother - spending quality time, wrapped up warm and toasty, feeling festive!

If you liked my first day of Blogmas, I would recommend you challenge yourself to this festive tag - it would be nice to read some of your posts!

Bye for now! Xxx


  1. Roast parsnips are the best! I'll usually roast them with some onions, carrots and a drizzle of olive oil. Candy canes are cute too, I've stuck small ones on all of my Christmas cards this year ^_^. x

    1. That sounds like a fab idea! I'm terrible at cooking so I leave all the fancy stuff to my mum! :) xx
