As I am not a) in the dating game or b) in the beautiful people league, I don't risk being axed off this dating site for my two to three extra holiday pounds. And I cannot ennact the new year healthy diet resolution until mid-January as off on holiday tomorrow.... to Georgia and South Carolina. Not sure any of these culinary trends are low fat!
I blame my extra pounds on the following:
An abundance of meat dishes, such as Gennaro Contaldo's Porchetta recipe, which we enjoyed on Xmas day with a side dish of Radicchio, and we did follow Matt Follas' partridge recipe for new years eve too (very good instructions). Selection after selection of cheeses, such as Picos Blue, and St Marcelin. And home made mince pies using Paul A Young 'cocoa nib and chocolate mincemeat' (very tasty out of the jar, but looses its wow factor in a pie - the left over will be going into making an ice cream... or eaten sneakily out of the jar... who me?).
I couldn't resist. . .
