Christmas Pudding



... there are some arguments sorry, 'traditions' at Christmas that however much we say we won't repeat next year, we simply can't do without...

... the 'angel no fairy no star, at the top of the Christmas tree' debate...

... the 'who's going to stay sober to drive home Auntie Betty' debate...

... the 'just put the fucking party hat on you muppet... it's Christmas' debate...

... the 'we're going to watch the Queens Speech, no we're not we're going to watch Harry Potter' debate...

... the 'we always eat at 3pm on Christmas Day...but I'm so HUNGRY' debate

... anyway, I think you get the gist... one of the 'disagreements' we always have is whether to go for Christmas Pudding or Christmas Cake... I'm a lover of the fruit cake, with the layer of marzipan and the white frosting... The Viking prefers the pudding although usually by the time we've imbibed the gigantic enormity of the main event there's usually very little room for anything, especially if I'm saving myself for Goose and Coleslaw sandwiches later...

... and anyway the plan this year was to go for Delia's Luxury Carrot Cake with added whisky... that was until I won a Forman and Field Christmas Pudding from the lovely Kavey on her brilliant blog KaveyEats... I've never won anything on a blog before so I'm very chuffed and the good people at Forman and Field managed to deliver it this week, so I have it in time for Christmas!

... it looks so tempting, coming wrapped in muslin and in its own ceramic steaming bowl and delivered with a huge pot of Brandy Sauce... I'm so excited I may burst!

Thanks Kavey!
