The Major Eating Season is about to begin
Halloween is almost upon us, and you know you are going to have leftover candy.
As soon as you've eaten that all up, here comes Thanksgiving. Whether you are the guest or the host you will be confronted with all manner of goodies.
Once the last bit of turkey soup in the Tupperware has been slurped down, it's time to get out the flour and sugar and start baking and deciding whether you should have ham like last year or try something different for Christmas.
Office parties, neighborhood parties, cookie exchanges, bring a treat to school days.
New Year's Eve - champagne and canapes.
New Year's Day (our house) - black-eyed peas, cornbread, mimosas, Rotel dip, leftover Christmas cookies.
Do you just say "what the hell," pretend not to notice how much you are consuming, promise to be virtuous and lose 10 pounds before Easter, or can you maintain self-control over the next two months?
Kool Aid - Think before you drink.
