Reuben's school Christmas lunch

Our thoughts towards the end of this week are turning to Christmas food as the big day slowly approaches. We have family coming over from London bringing all the food we're used to at this time of year...mince pies, cranberry sauce and stuffing. We've been put in charge of sourcing the meat, cheese, fish as well as the Buche de Noël that we have ordered from our village bakery to pick up on Christmas day. It feels like a huge responsibility gathering all this food, but I'm already looking forward to the prospect of large family dinners with a delicious mix of French and English food!

Every month we get given Reuben's school lunch menu and today the kids were treated to a special Christmas lunch on their last day of term. Their menu included duck mousse, saucisson and stuffed turkey, followed by chocolate log and cooked apples, all washed down with 'Champomy' a kids special non-alcoholic champagne!

Reuben has been coming home this week with little handmade Christmas decorations and drawing from the past half term. He's had a lovely first term (though he's ready for a break now!) and has settled in really well. We've even started to hear him speaking in French with his friends from school. 'Ne touchez pas' he tells Jacob when he starts playing with the Christmas tree! 

Do you have kids at school? What have they had for their Christmas lunch this year?
