Amy told Femail: ‘The 12 Dinners of Christmas is a pre-Christmas meal plan that will help you save time, money and get you in the festive spirit!
‘I’ve created a Christmas meal plan that will take you right up to Christmas Eve. Everyone, including me, is usually so concerned about food for the big day, that we often forget to plan what we’ll be eating in the build up.
‘We’re so busy shopping and wrapping, or writing endless lists, that dinner is often ready meals, takeaways or toast. This year I’ve taken the stress out of it.
‘I’ve created 12 pre-Christmas dinner recipes, along with a meal plan and shopping list.
The idea stems from Amy (pictured) previously scrambling around the busy festive period, meaning she’d often get a takeaway, or even end up snacking on toast for dinner
‘All of the meals are simple, delicious, on budget and with a bit of a Christmas twist. It’s one less thing you have to plan for and one less list you have to write.
‘Lots of the recipes share ingredients, which reduces waste and the cost of your shop. All meals are festive crowd pleasers that will get you in the Christmas spirit.
