Yesterday I baked a Christmas cake. Today I made a Christmas pudding. Nigella has nothing on me - apart from a voluptuous figure, a wealthy husband and a shelf-ful of books to her name etc etc!

Steaming a pudding is a whole day's work - 8 hours spent topping up the pan to ensure it doesn't burn dry - but well worth it. And you get to make a wish as you stir it.

So we have a cake and a pudding. Now all we need is the main course. I gave up on turkey a few years ago and since then we've eaten goose, biryani, chicken and pork. The girls have voted for crispy duck this year, with pancakes. We'll see.
