Another Thanksgiving in the books.
Now that we are done giving thanks for the blessings in our lives,
(which for me means I didn’t blow out the seams of my pants this year)
it is back to some form of reality.
With the exception of my American friends and family
who still have more than a month to gear up
and hopefully take note of one very important matter
that could possibly make all the difference in the world
when it comes to celebrating their turkey day.
So we basically survived.
and for some,
that extra plate of turkey
meant one more thing…
Some even go as far as not eating all day
because we all know that if you do that,
you’ll have a ton of room for that amazing main course
and all the fixings.
This would be so do-able
but who can resist the appetizers
that take up space
and scream at us
“pick me! pick me!”
(I swear I hear them talking when I’m starving)
Those cute little morsels
we carefully choose
from cheese trays
to pickle platters.
Apparently my deviled eggs brought down the house this year
and got a big thumbs up!
the end result is always the same.
We eat and drink too much.
Holiday hangover as I like to call it.
Honestly believing that our bodies can handle
more food at one sitting
than we can normally eat in one day.
I suppose this wouldn’t be a true story
if I failed to mention desserts
coming out the ying-yang.
I can’t be the only one
who is full beyond imagination
and still feels the need
to force more pastry and cheesecake down my gullet,
knowing I am pushing my limits with my
ever so comfortable stretchy pants.
With all that being said,
it really isn’t that bad.
it’s not like we do this everyday,
and a little over-indulgence never hurt anyone.
However Christmas is lurking
around the next corner,
and I don’t know about any of you,
but something tells me
I should get my act together come the next holiday,
and I really do need to work on my self-control.
However if that doesn’t happen
there is a strong possibility
Santa will make sure I have a pair of
extra-large stretchy pants
under the tree with my name on them,
so me and the screaming appetizers
can at least enjoy a pleasant conversation!
Stay thankful everybody!
Make it a great day!
