@Del: well, it was Aldi stollen, what did you expect? Probably very dry and consisted mostly of candied orange and lemon peel. There really are HUGE differences in quality between e.g. my mum's stollen and the cheap stuff you can get at discount stores.
I may not have been able to eat the Stollen but I will gladly eat my words cheery...
I'm always the one saying to people... Noooo squid is delicious. The stuff you tried was badly cooked!
And noone has ever made a Christmas pudding like my mum's... and I don't even usually like pudding.
I do usually try though... I ate ravioli in at least half a dozen counties when I was in Europe... everyone ELSE seemed to love it.. and when I finally got to Italy I was given it FREE by four or five restaurants in different parts of the country. They were convinced I would love theirs. I still don't like ravioli.
Just keep swimming... just keep swimming.. just keep swimming....
