A snack plate!!
The above photo is from Christmas 2010 - the first Christmas day I spent with my inlaws. One of Matts family traditions is a 'snack plate'... this entails a selection of favourite savouries such as mini cheddars, chip sticks, peanuts and bacon frazzles. This plate is usually presented after Christmas dinner and is nibbled on for the remainder of the afternoon/evening.
I had honestly never seen anything quite like it before!! I'm sure it will become part of our Christmas traditions too... (in fact, only last evening M showed me his secret stash of frazzles & chip sticks!)
