Christmas puddings! More than enough for the community Christmas Day lunch as I think this is meant to serve something like 72 people!!
Advent is definitely a time of buying lots of extra food, of getting ready for the day when people might eat a day's worth of calories in one meal.
I'm never too good at guessing how much food to buy, always preferring to get too much than too little. What I do like is getting together with others - especially those who are on the margins - to celebrate and enjoy each other's company.
Later this week I will serve a full Christmas dinner to a group of young adults - we may even crack open a Christmas pudding!
