The magical days arrive and the houses begin to be impregnated with the Christmas spirit and reunions. But also tables full of delicacies and sweets . Lunches and dinners happen one after another and maybe you have to be the host of one of them. Well, if your culinary creativity runs out, or if you simply don’t have time to prepare a menu to suit all diners, supermarkets become a great ally for their offer of prepared dishes and starters or gourmet products at affordable prices. In this way, it is only necessary to collect them on the day, put them in the oven for a few minutes and taste them.
Without a doubt, both are alternatives ‘low cost’compared to dinners in hotels or restaurants on Christmas days, which are quite expensive due to the dates. In addition, there is not much difference in price to buy all the ingredients, meat, fish or seafood and cook them at home. And there are some that are worth it. We tell you.
