    Sausage casserole sounds delicious, can you share the recipe? I’m contemplating Christmas too, well let’s face it, I’m always contemplating Christmas! Have you watched The Great British Baking Show Christmas editions? So fun!

    Your menus look great! I’m catching up on past seasons of the Great British Baking Show and am really enjoying them. There are a couple of Mary Berry’s recipes that I plan on trying out myself soon. Beautiful orange tree!
