I here and now resolve to start eating much better.....after the holidays. Until then, I am committed to continuing my baking binge. I made this...way too decadent cheesecake. It's a espresso/Baileys cheesecake with a chocolate crumble crust. OMG! If that wasn't enough, I soon plan to hearken back to my Nordic heritage, and bake an authentic Danish Layer Cake. It's a multi-layered cake with custard and raspberry filling between the layers. My Gramma K used to make them. Unreal! But I pledge, come the first of the year, it's back to practicality. Lest I fall over the gastro-cliff.
For the first time since I can remember.....Terri and I ended up getting out Christmas tree from an urban tree lot.....not from a field somewhere. Normally.....we get together with the kids, and go out to a tree farm....do the trudge around thing and cut one down. It usually took the better part of a couple of hours to finally come up with consensus on the tree, but we always got it done. Then we'd go to a nice spot and have a bite. Not this year. Everyone's schedule is a bit too hectic. Crummy. Oh well, there's always next year.
