Well, yesterday Big J, the kids and I all had a lovely dinner out which put me about a day behind in the weight loss fight. We went to a Greek restaurant and although I had grilled kalamari, we also had Greek salad, fried kalamari, prawns, dessert and wine.
So, in order to get back on track, today would have to be a fewer calories than normal day. It was going well until I decided I'd better eat some of the fruit cake before it goes bad. I'm a big fruit cake fan and cut myself a huge slice. But it is not all bad.
While trying to determine the number of calories in fruit cake, (I decided it was 500), I stumbled on this garage band:
Apparently there is a huge fruit cake festival every year in a small little town in eastern California called Independence, and this band will often play there. The festival has a different theme each year like "Fruit Cakes in Space".
Fruit cakes are a love 'em or hate 'em kind of food and it's nice that there is a festival to celebrate this holiday food.
