With less than 2 weeks to the big day, now is the time to remind ourselves to trap the fat!
I am as guilty as the next person at sometimes forgetting and putting fat down the sink. Usually I put it in an old tub to solidify. The result is pretty horrible but much better in an old tub than being stuck down the water pipes. I have now been sent a fat trapper which does the same job in a more stylish way!
A recent study by united utilities shows the average North West household pours 14lbs of fat down the drain a year. They attend over a whopping 52,000 call outs to pipe blockages each year. It also highlights that a lot of insurance companies wont pay out if the problem is caused by fats. With Christmas on the way, it is worth remembering to trap that fat from our turkey roast, rather than chuck it down the sink.

If you are looking for some inspiration for some dishes over the festive season I thought I would share some of my favourites. I love brussels sprouts and these with red wine and pancetta are fantastic.
For a Christmas Cocktail you can't really go wrong with these flat white martinis. I am pretty sure that Father Christmas would be happy to be left one of these by the fire place.
