Christmas Planning Tip: Get yourself a spare speed peeler.

Todays Christmas planning tip is simple but could make all the difference to the delivery of a stress free successful Christmas lunch.  If you haven’t already got one I highly recommend these speed peelers. In fact I recommend you have two or three of these in your kitchen. If you get behind you can get the family helping with the peeling. Having a spare is also good as I’ve been known to need one only to find it’s in the dishwasher with 70 minutes to go on the wash cycle.

I’ve gone through a few of these over the years but this is the one I’ve got and recommend now:

Just spotted a lovely simple Christmas food idea

Always looking for ways to get the children to eat more fruit, so loved this great idea when I spotted it on Twitter.  It would also be good fun to make these with the children.

If you don’t eat these straight away the banana will start to go brown. You can slow this down by disolving  a vitamin c tablet in water and dipping the banana in this.
