I bulk baked mince pies and cookies for presents this year (didn't get a chance to take any pics.. must have been a good sign they liked them) I took a frozen piece of nutroast to my dads for Christmas dinner, made most of my gifts/ bought second hand and other little tokens and gave no cards this year; they only end up in the recycling bin after a week or so.
I have a tradition with a group of my friends where the following rules apply: Presents must be found, freebies, homemade, for charity or acquired (I don't mean shoplift.. perhaps a tin full of a friends favorite free sauce sachets you've picked up over a few meals out). This always makes Christmas more exciting and saves a few bob from your wallet too! Some of the gifts I got this year included home made peanut butter infused vodka, home made vegan chocolate truffles, and a second hand Disney puzzle- very impressed with my friends skills :)
We get together for what we call "Friendmas" this involves watching some xmas films making soup (the grated cheese in the soup is vegan don't panic), swapping prezzies, drinking mulled wine (this year we even added vegan eggnog to our feast) and generally vegging out on the sofa!
mmm Vodka! Saving this for a rainy evening and a good film! Perhaps a vegan reese's cocktail of some sort! Any suggestions?
One of the tastiest truffles ever! Plus they look like mini xmas puddings which is totally adorable!- My friends are so creative!!! (Excuse the blurry photo.. shaky with excitement and sugar hehe)
Leek and potato soup with vegan cheese and crusty bread... *dribble*
Mulled wine in a German mulled wine mug :)How was your Christmas? How do you celebrate with friends? Any fun traditions? I want to hear about it! Leave me a comment pretty people :)
