We totally failed at December. I don’t even remember what the challenge was. Instead we all got together and played Chopped. That was more fun, anyways (as well as being a great excuse to play with a deep fryer).
January dawned and found us all a couple pounds heavier thanks to the deep fryer and deep glasses of malbec. Mama Morena solved the problem with subscriptions to Cooking Light magazine and a challenge to make and review four recipes in January. I didn’t lose 22 pounds like the editor did, but I did lose the 3 I gained over Christmas!
