Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

A/N: Exactly 100 words first try! WOOHOO!

Ianto bustled around the supermarket, loading supplies for Christmas into his trolley. Sprouts, parsnips, spuds, carrots, mince pies, Christmas pudding, custard powder, cheesy biscuits, sausage rolls, a turkey, stuffing mix, Christmas crackers… One by one he crossed items off the very comprehensive list he’d written the night before.

Jack trailed behind him, looking bemused and occasionally adding something that wasn’t on Ianto’s list; crisps, chocolates, a couple of bottles of really good white wine. He stared at the item Ianto had in his hand.

“Ianto? Why do they call it cranberry sauce when it looks like a jar of jam?”

The End


Um, does cranberry sauce come in jars in the UK? It comes in cans around here. Just curious. :)
Yes, over here it's in jars. I always think it looks like jam, but I love it anyway.

Thank you.

A very good question indeed! Never thought about having it on toast before though! Maybe I should try it on crumpets? Hmmm.....

I've had it in a sandwich. With turkey, but it goes well with cheese too ;)

Thank you!
Great ficlet.
Thank you!

Are you organised for Christmas? I'm not *headdesk*
Buying food really is easier with lists *lol* ::)
I always take a list - and then buy a ton of stuff that's NOT on my list ;)

Thank you!
good question!!
I have never tasted cranberry sauce: it is sweet ??? it is eaten with what ???
We are rather smoked salmon, foie gras (home anyway), oysters, eggs toast lumps (cheaper than caviar !!), crab surimi mixture, Tarama.

For the first time, I was forced to go to complete my rounds on the morning of 24 ... I do not it again !!
