Somewhere I can let out my inner crafter without being labeled as even more insane.

So, finally I remember that I have a word of the year- organisation! It sort of fell a bit beside the wayside this year, but it gets one final hurrah before the end of the year.

I’m not especially fond of cooking, but I can do it. Last year I cooked Christmas dinner for the house (with a faulty oven which meant it happened several hours late…). This year, I have an oven which works, and a much larger dinner to cook. There will be 9 of us eating, including a vegetarian, so forward planning is a must! Otherwise I will forget something, and it’s anyones guess what!

So, here is the final plan of cooking (written on a whiteboard so I can easily change things if necessary 🙂 )

IMGP0459How do you all plan large cooking escapades? Or do you just wing it and hope that everything ends up fine?

  1. We’ve got 13 this year, all sleeping over, too, so beds are the first things to sort out. Veg is prepared on 23rd so we can relax and enjoy Christmas Eve with the kids, as are the puddings. Christmas Day just evolves really, all the prep having been done so we wing the rest of it:)

  2. Brilliant! I use the same “timeline” method of organizing big dinners. We’ll only be three this year, but I’ll organize the heck out of it anyway 😉
