We certainly haven't contributed to the 2m turkeys, 5m Christmas puddings and 74m mince pies (source: lovefoodhatewaste) that Britons will have reportedly wasted this Christmas.
We had a modest free range chicken for our Christmas bird, that was used up entirely. The leftover Christmas pudding is in the freezer for a treat later in the year, and the spare Christmas pudding will keep until next Christmas. There is some mincemeat in the fridge, but that will last a bit longer and provide a couple of desserts over the next month.

The cheese situation is mostly under control although a small amount of cottage cheese gone mouldy makes up pretty much the only food waste. There's no need for any cheese freezing. Stilton and cranberry sauce on toast has been popular, and the return to packed lunches should use up extra cheese next week.
All in all, not toooo bad!!
