Christmas Week Menu Planning

We are heading to the Mornington Peninsula for Xmas week at a house near the beach. Very excited to be together with our Melbourne family and new granddaughter for a whole week of feasting.

To prepare for the week, I have been putting together some menu ideas using recipes of old and some new ideas. This has helped us to put together our ingredients list as we expect not everything will be available down there.

Here are the “image boards” of what I am thinking….some recipes can be found here and others will be posted as we go. Hope it provides some #Festive season inspiration to you.
