Finally managed to watch the recording of the Mary Berry/Paul Hollywood, cooking programme last night, I know we are supposed to be eating richer foodstuffs at this festive time of the year, but oh lawdy, lawdy, was those foods rich and heavy.
Far too rich for my stomach, and I suspect alot of others also. Phew.

I would explode if I ate all the 'traditional' Christmas foods!! Could cope with it when I was 25 but not now :-D.

I like a nice roast with all the trimmings, but we usually have fruit or something for pud. I've just made an orange drizzle cake as we've got visitors this weekend, but haven't got Christmas cake or pudding.

Have a few nice 'posh' chocs and that's about it - no crisps, nuts, cream, sherry, port etc....

A little bit of everything and all sorts,for us Sheila, but all in moderation.
We want to live to see another day.

Enjoy yourselves and have a good one.
