Weekends spent sorting oneself out may be very useful, but are dull as hell.

I'm still waiting for info from various people before I can finish fixing my schedule for the coming week.

And I'm suffering from chronic Stollen-Lust. Since I object to the expansion of Xmas to cover 2 months I'm determined not to eat any Xmas-type food until mid-December, but Asda are now stocking "Stollen bites", which are getting very hard to resist.
As anyone who's ever been there at the right time of year knows, the Germans have by far the finest Xmas cuisine in the world.

I should probably go and do some more housework before the weekend becomes a mission failure. I'm just feeling an inclination towards company now that I can't currently fill, 'cos stuff needs doing. Evidently I shall have to 'do' the KSR on Fridays *and* Saturdays from now on.

Oh and the ME box has crashed again. Hoo-bloody-ray.

(PS: I post too much)

Update: So *now* I know how to trigger comments from you lot ;)

good-good. I adore Lebkuchen, but didn't want to buy any for myself because I'd just eat them all. so if I buy some for you I'll just have one and then it'll be OK.
*kisses* I love you too.

Daft question you might not know the answer to... do you know of any recipes for aforementioned marvellous gingery treats? I have a bit of a jones for gingery things, but have to bake 'em myself by virtue of them being evil and wheaty.

Stollen! Stollen fantastic! Grandmother's stollen fantastic! Grandmother's christmas cookies fantastic!

Sorry, this sort of LJ-crashing is the sort of thing you expect from a half-German from a culinary gifted background who has grown to worship the day when the overseas parcel arrives... *g*

I don't believe I've had the pleasure, no.

*bows, doffs hat, and tries not to look as strange or alarming as you've most likely told liz I am* ;)

Yes, I think 'hello' is definitely in order... you're one of those people I know about via hearsay and LJ-stalking and never actually get round to being introduced to, aren't you? *g*

*would do the courtly curtsey thing but am wearing jeans and would feel a bit of a twit in the Classics Faculty Reserved Volumes Room*

Can you enlighten me - what are "stolen bites"?
From: valkyriekaren
Date: November 10th, 2002 - 09:31 am (Link)
*grin* Stolen bites sound fun! But it's stollen - it's a German fruitcake with a marzipan filling, traditionally eaten around Christmas time. Rather rich, very bad for the waistline, and pretty yummy.

Oooh, sounds good :) maybe i'll have to invent a snack called 'stolen bites' though - there's obviously a niche in the market ;)
