January first is not the day to be making food resolutions for the year ahead. Or, at least, not the day to be acting on those resolutions. You need a warm up period, that adjustment window that lets you get ducks in a row, shop for what you need, and go from there.
Especially too when you’ve a wedding anniversary to contend with. I was married 4 January last year so I’ve opted to push everything out to 5 January to get the last of the drinks, crisps, dinners, snacks in – you name it.
