    I did a lot of walking last year, which had the happy outcome of losing a noticeable amount of weight. I had decided to carry on with the efforts, and maybe add some different forms of exercise.

      We still have two large Christmas cakes and two Christmas puddings I made.

      I wanted to eat them up now, but my husband says we should leave them until Easter (thus undoing any Jan to March efforts no doubt).

      Yes, that'll work.
      They do tend to keep quite well or you can just freeze them & bring them out next year.

      A few years ago my New Year's resolution was to stop making Christmas cakes and I did. I do love them but the temptation to have a slice with a cup of coffee got too difficult to resist.

        Totally agree!

        One reason why we have leftover ones this year is that, as well as the cakes, I tried making panforte. I'd never eaten that before but I found a recipe and gave it a go. My family really liked it so I ended up making more of them. I suspect they were even more calorific than Christmas cakes, if that is possible, as they were crammed with roasted hazelnuts, almonds and pecans, held together with honey and brown sugar... you could almost see the weight piling on after a couple of slices...

          I tried that one year but I was forced to buy a cake because my darling hubby feels hard done by if he doesn’t have a Christmas cake to tuck into at some point. I plan to bring a rather large chunk of it into work for people to try. Thankfully some of the alcohol has evaporated so I won’t be charged with Typing Under the Influence. πŸ˜† Part of the problem is that my friend’s recipe is just too good. I now make it for her family as for many years she was taken up with the care of her late husband.

          Take care and stay well. HelenπŸ˜‹

            Now you know why I restrict my baking episodes - I am too good at eating it.
