What vegans eat at Christmas…

The weekend before Christmas kicked off with a sleepover with my besties with lots of food and fizz.

Louise made a spread of party food. Later on, when watching Mean Girls, we tucked into peanut butter truffles.

The next morning we had Jus Rol cinnamon buns, berries and a lot of coffee before I headed off to meet my sister.

Every December my sister and I go through to Edinburgh for theatre, lunch and wander around the Christmas markets.

This year we got tickets to see Kinky Boots at Edinburgh Playhouse. Some of you may know the film. This is the first UK tour of the musical and the songs were written by Cyndi Lauper, as in Girls just wanna have fun songstress! However, when it arrived in London in 2016 it won the Olivier Award for Best New Musical.

We ate at Hendersons, we usually eat at the restaurant but decided to try the less formal cafe this time. I got a Thai burger and thyme roasted potatoes.

When we arrived back in Glasgow we had a cheeky nightcap in the country style bar at the George Square market.

The festive fun continued on Sunday with our traditional fake Christmas! We have done this the last Sunday before Christmas for as long as I can remember, taking it in turns to host. This year it was my sisters turn and she absolutely nailed it! Vegan, nut free (Mr.Johnson is allergic) and absolutely delicious!

For Christmas Eve I had preordered dinner from our faves at Tomillo that just needed to be heated up before serving.

On the big day we tucked into Tofurkey roast with all the trimmings prepared by my mum.

Boxing Day dinner was a delicious beetroot tart from Marks and Spencers.

The days since then have been a blur of fizz, party food, naps and coffee to be honest.

We are having a couple of friends over for New Years Eve and have decided to make a mushroom and lentil wellington.

If you want to see how we get on then make sure you are following me on Instagram.

I really hope you all had a magical Christmas and have the very best new year!

Big Loves,
