Seasonal Eating in December

Happy December 1st everyone! Honestly, where did November go? Or even more so- where did the Autumn go? I felt like it was just Halloween a blink ago and Christmas is rolling on so quickly!

    A couple of weeks ago I tried out Jerusalem artichoke soup for the first time and it was wonderful, so I’m hoping to find some time to make one of those at home – though I’m pretty sure I will eat nothing else.

  • Mushrooms and cauliflower are my favorite!! *o*

  • Not a fan of brussel sprouts sadly but I am looking forward to roast pumpkin with Christmas dinner, yummy! 🙂

    Hope you are having a lovely weekend! I’m surprised it’s December already, but excited too, we are going to put up our Christmas tree this weekend and we are going to a Christmas party today.

    • I hated sprouts as a kid but I can’t get enough of them now.

      Hope you have a great time putting the tree up! xx
