Lovin' Life 21/11/2019: Christmas Issues.

Not psychological issues about Christmas but the festive editions of food magazines....

The tree's not going up until December 1 but in my head, it's perfectly acceptable to be reading Christmas editions of food magazines in the last week of November.  Preferably while snacking on what are traditionally Yuletide Danish butter cookies (in Australia, at least).

Looking for Christmas lunch ideas in the December issue is a tradition of mine.  There's always a dilemma when it comes to the trifle recipe.  Do I try something new or stick to Donna Hay's white chocolate and raspberry show stopper that's so good it becomes breakfast for the week of Festivus Inbetweenus.

I'm intrigued by the concept of traybake stuffing.  A stuffing made separately to the meat you intend to eat it with,  This particular version involves pork sausage and apples.  It's going on the list right now.

Do you break your hard copy magazine fast for the holidays?  Do you have any favourite recipe genres?  Will you be making trifle this year?


  1. I laughed because I've just bought one of these at the airport - and I never buy magazines lol. My husband makes the trifle every year and even though we'll be in the UK in an air BNB for Christmas, he's under orders to keep the tradition up. My daughter loves it for Boxing Day breakfast.

  2. My dad used to do that with stuffing. And make tonnes of it. And we'd eat it like biscuits without any of the turkey. It's the best!

  3. How can it nearly be Christmas already?!! It just came out of the blue! I had never heard of tray bake stuffing but it's got me intrigued now! I'll have to investigate. :-) xo #TeamLovinLife

  4. I never did trifle for Christmas until my sil introduced it. We were a Christmas pudding with brandy butter (mmm) family. But those days are long is the pudding maker my mum. It was only ever me and Dad who got stuck into it and truly after one of Mum's Christmas lunches I have no idea where we put it. I admit, all is just about gone from our family traditions as there is so little I can eat with comfort and hub is not a big eater. In fact, until my birthday is done, I have no idea about Christmas. You on the other hand I know love your research.
