14 days of Christmas, day 11; late night snacking

For some reason no matter how much we eat for lunch on Christmas day we are still hungry in the evening and searching for nibbles.

Most of the time we tuck into turkey sandwiches and cold potatoes but there are a few things which are far tastier and a lot easier to knock up.
