GLUTEN FREE CHRISTMAS RECIPES
Its Christmas and Christmas is all about the tree, presents, seeing all the lights and decorations around town, its a magical time of year.
A time to spread love and to give presents and to receive presents. Not forgetting the food as well.
Chocolate Yule Log
Roast Turkey and brussel sprouts, Prawn cocktails, pigs in blankets (sausages wrapped in bacon)
When I was growing up we had prawn cocktail for our starter and mum made the most amazing cocktail sauce.
My favourite food to eat on Christmas day is turkey with apple sauce, roast potatoes, carrots, brussel sprouts, gravy and the pigs in blankets.
My favourite dessert is chocolate yule log and then homemade gluten free mince pies.
