The winter holidays are all about lazy mornings and evening parties. When the weather becomes inclement it’s better to stay in. Today I have asked you to name five snacks that you enjoy during the holiday season. Here are my favourites:
My favourite winter leisure activity is enjoying innumerable cups of tea while I read in an oversize cosy armchair or catch my favourite shows. When it is raining, steaming mugs of coffee, cocoa or hot chocolate are always welcome.
There is no particular season for chocolate but it seems to taste so much better in winter. Coffee goes so well with dark chocolate, my preference being LindtOrange Intense or 90% Dark.
This is a healthy choice when it comes to holiday munching. Kudos to you if you pop it fresh on the stove top, fewer points if you make the microwave kind. Lazy bones like me can buy them ready to eat. I love the mixed kind with ten salted to one Caramel flavoured.
Frozen Pizza & Quiche
My kids buy these frozen and heat them to eat at any time of the day or night. I keep grumbling about their high sodium content but secretly don’t mind having them once in a while.
Fruit & Nuts
These are the best kind of snacks ready packaged by nature. I love peanuts, almonds and walnuts in their shells. Sitting by the fire , armed with a nutcracker and a handful of nuts is a cozy way of spending long winter evenings.
What are your favourites?I would love to know.
