There are a few jobs that are often forgotten and will make Christmas cooking easier.
Sharpen knives including the carving knife well in advance. Makes all the chopping, peeling and carving so much easier.
Clean out the freezer well before Christmas - you can not do this job early enough. Sort the freezer out and make space for Christmas food to be stored together in one place. Rummaging through an overstocked, messy freezer, trying to find food can become irritating.A week before Christmas give the refigerator a good sort through and clean and make space for Christmas food - time for all the old jars and leftovers to hit the trash can.Time for a deep clean of the oven. Leaving this job until after Christmas will be ten times messier with all that turkey fat.
