Christmas dinner and snacks
1. M&S The Collection Christmas Snowflake Mince Pies £2.50/323g pack of 6
Laura Rowe, editor of olive Magazine says: “I have become addicted since the pies won our Christmas Supermarket Awards. Buttery yet crisp pastry, filled with aromatic, plump fruit.”
2. Booths five-piece award-winning cheese selection £29/890g
Laura Rowe says: “So often supermarket cheese boards are fairly bland but this one really feels artisan. The brie de Meaux is super ripe, a goat’s log is fresh and creamy, Montgomery cheddar is one of the finest cheddars around, Cropwell Stilton is sharp and proud, while Cornish Yarg is a real crowd-pleaser. I’m going to buy one to serve for guests, and one all for myself.
Yeaaaaaaaa idk about some of this shit but I would fuck up a mince pie …sounds delicious
