What’s Christmas day without a roast dinner?
Whether you’re going to be digging into turkey or enjoying a nut roast, the last thing anyone wants to do is the washing up.
But one man who shared his time and mess-saving hack online has been accused of being “lazy,” according to Daily Mail.
Instead of serving the meal on plates, he dished it up in foil oven trays.
The pictures of the hack were posted online by the man’s wife who admitted the idea was crazy but since 2020 had been a crazy year she thought she’d go along with it.
And because the family liked it so much they decided to do it again this year.

But not everyone was convinced by his hack.
One person said: “This ends up in landfill I presume. It doesn’t take long to wash a few plates – get the family involved. Get the family involved and use the pretty plates instead of this.”
While another wrote: “No, no, no – I wouldn’t eat off tin foil. So lazy.”
The original poster was forced to defend her family after receiving a number of comments about wastage, as she said they “recycle often.”
But others thanked her for sharing the idea.
“Might have to do this the way my toddler keeps smashing plates – she has plastic ones but gets hold of ours,” one woman wrote.
While another called the idea “epic”.
A few people also admitted to doing something similar so that their guests can take home the leftovers, as one person put: “It works well for us because it means what’s not eaten from the buffet is taken home in everyone’s containers.”
What do you think of the idea? Is it lazy or genius?
