What do you use?

We put the electric coolbox on today for the extra food fridge shopping, and we also use our kitchen stand as extra shelves in the utility rook for food too. We might use the tables yet for a party.

Later when we visit relatives we are taking sleeping mats and sleeping bags.

Makes it seem extra value!

Yep, Aldi 15lt Mini-oven always gets used at Christmas to give extra capacity on the big day!

Iceytek being drafted in to defrost the turkey in. Usually would just leave it in the out house, but is too warm to do that this time.

I use my coolbox to store food from the freezer while I defrost it and occasionally use chairs and tables when I have guests.

Used airbeds and have used suitcase stove when our big gas cylinder ran out two days before could get replacement.

Anyone any ideas about cooking a 4.5kg turkey on a gas hob? With the forecast, we could be without electric for quite a while

I used the Table and chair set in the past - but last year my kitchen office was downsized and relocated to a cupboard I now have a proper table and chairs.
I use the air bed for when DS friends stop over

For the first time, I shall be using my camping table and four wobbly stalls in the kitchen as I have ten to burn dinner for this year! Not a lot of room in my kitchen/diner but the fun of Christmas is trying to fit everybody in. May change my opinion of that come Boxing Day, lol!!

I quite often get the electric double hotplate out for the Mrs as she complains at Xmas she does not have enough cooking rings for pans. Click the Piccy for details.
