Having spent the weekend nearly entirely around finishing up the Christmas decorations, Christmas shopping, and Christmas photos, it’s time to bring on the Christmas food! Yes, it’s that time of year when food reigns king. Unfortunately, for those of us whose metabolism has retired early, even the smallest of indulgences can stick around longer than we’d like.
The Mrs is great about cooking the natural recipes with Stevia and whole foods. So much so, that it’s difficult to tell the difference. The deception of it is that you may eat more because it’s ‘healthy’. But, what the heck, it’s Christmas.
This week, she’ll be working on the gingerbread house with the grandson and getting ready for family to visit. I’ll be looking forward to the Watergate salad (one of my personal favorites), ham, pumpkin pie, mashed potatoes, cranberry salad, roles, stuffing, and chocolate anything. I may just put the ‘healthy’ living on hold for a few days… Well, maybe not.
Whether it’s sitting around the table with family or sitting around the TV watching our favorite Christmas programs (Elf being one of them), we’ll be enjoying some great food over the next few weeks and I’ll be certain to carry a load of guilt along with it. Tonight, I’ll leave you with a clip below of one of my favorite Christmas food scenes from the movie Elf for you to enjoy (it sort of reminds me of … me...).
