It likely wasn't that good because it was un-seasonal. Sort of like walking into a Christmas store when it's 100 degrees outside. King cake season starts in January.

I won't be online today. I fired our contractor today, I'm all keyed up, and the kitchen is still all torn up. I am not in a good mood.

I'm guessing you are playing around, so I'll play along.

Is that what it is? I was think it was because they didn't have the filling that I wanted. So is the season based in date or weather. I thought it was Christmas season but it's been warm and getting worse. This weekend it's supposed to be up to 76*. Recently we had it in the 80's for Christmas.

So I guess the "Christmas" part was okay, the "king cake" part was not. So how about this... I had a Christmas cinnamon roll... nope, I got it, it was a Christmas cinnamon ring!

So I shouldn't call it a king cake because it's not king cake season? Crawfish "season" doesn't start until the Spring, but if I boil up a sack of them in February am I not having a crawfish boil? Down here, deer season (for guns) starts Nov. 10, if somebody shoots something that looks like Bambi on Nov 1st, did they not shoot a deer?

Sorry to hear this Mern, not nice 3 weeks before Christmas.
I think the season is stressful enough without adding more. I remember the Christmas after my twin died, my Mom came home from having surgery on Dec. 23, my brother was sick and my Dad fell asleep in the chair. Yep, good times.

Another missing member checking in. Life has been hectic with work, Thanksgiving and my Firearms business. Haven't logged my food or been to the gym in over a week. Hit a record low for weight the day before Thanksgiving, 218 pounds!! Bounced back up a couple pounds from Thanksgiving which I had expected. Had a gun show this weekend and was on my feet for 8 hours both Saturday and Sunday. Weighed again this morning, after eating a small amount of cake and ice cream for my grandaughter's 3rd birthday, and hit another low of 217.4 pounds!!!

My only goal for the week is to eat sensibly.

I have no illusions of getting to the gym with my schedule. Hope everyone else is resisting the Holiday foods that are always so plentiful this time of year.

Mike;
Hope you're not eating that Christmas Cake (or whatever you decided to call it) by yourself?

I'm here! Yesterday was pretty good. Today is going well so far. My family checked in for our first week weigh-in. Everyone lost about 4 lbs (probably a lot of extra water weight and whatnot from Thanksgiving) except me, who lost 0.4 lbs, but it's more than I deserved, after last week. I'm hoping for a good week this week.
