Just the other day I received a very exciting parcel from M&S*, I eagerly tore it open and kept finding delicious looking festive food treats which both Spencer and I could not wait to try. Spencer had literally been nagging me every single day for a little bit and got really frustrated when I told him no, I had to take photos first!
We received their Mulled Wine Spiced Fruit Loaf, a slab of Belgium chocolate, Clementine, Cranberry & Pomegranate Bucks Fizz, All Butter Panettone, a selection of mince pies, Christmas pudding cookies and last but by no means least the perfect stocking filler in the form of chocolate satsumas.
On top of all of this we received a jar of raisins in dark rum syrup and a decorate your own gingerbread men kit. I'm currently trying to think of something to make with the raisins and waiting for my niece to help me decorate the gingerbread men.
As we've both taken this week off work we treated ourselves to a festive breakfast buffet, as pictured. We didn't eat much because it was all so rich and filling, but also all so delicious! Spencer took the rest of the Mulled Wine loaf and mince pies up to his parents house as they had short expiry dates so had to be eaten faster than we could manage. We're still working our way through everything else.
This would make for the perfect snack combination if you are having friends/family over for a Christmas night in.
