Meat Free Mondays - 7 Recipes for the Week Ahead (19 December 2016)

Ahhhhhhhhhh! Only a few days until Christmas and I have so, so much to do. I've just about finished my Christmas shopping. I have a few bits and pieces still to get and some stockings to fill, but then there's the gargantuan task of wrapping presents and I have still to get the house in order and think about food shopping. May I have an extra couple of days this week please?

So this week has to be simple on the food front and this week's recipes are just perfect for that, with a couple of Christmas day recipes included too.

  4. We're having a quiet Christmas this year, so I'm very relieved to say that we only have the food shopping to do now as we've already played at being 'Santa' and delivered parcels to friends and family! Loving the round up Jacqueline, especially like the look of those mini wreath roasts and the Moroccan vegetable soup. Thank you too for including my vegetarian plait :-)

  5. Oooh a couple of extra days in this week sounds like a brilliant idea. Preferably child free ones so I can get more done!! I often think it would be nice be able to pause time, get everything I need done, and then restart it :-) Thanks for including my sprout salad. Eb x

  6. Gorgeous recipes as always - I particularly like Kate's mini wreath roasts.
