That seems like all I have been doing for several months. Craig and I have been having some wonderful meals together, and it seems the more willing I am to cook, the more wonderful recipes he finds for me to try.
We have also been eating more deserts and small offerings of candies like English Toffee and chocolates at night.
The other day we stopped at the Casa De Fruita store and bought $40 worth of dried fruit, trail mix, and candy. All for the Holidays of course!
Trays of cookies and elaborate whipped cream covered deserts have appeared on a regular schedule.
Because we are together with family this week, we have been having large breakfasts and dinners.
This year we tried a goose for Christmas dinner and it came out fantastic! A bit expensive, but since our daughter's Au Pair is from Denmark, we all thought it would be an interesting cultural exchange. She has also prepared several traditional Danish Christmas dishes. All very heavy on the cream and butter!
Tonight we are going to a get together of our daughter's closest friends. Families that we have known and loved for years as well. And of course there will be lots of great food. Don't want to be rude and skip anything!
SOOO! The New Year is going to involve some big changes for me. Not a wishy- washy January 1, resolution to go on a diet.
Been there, done that. Failed every time.
I have shed lots of pounds a couple of times and I know how to do it. Eat less every day, exercise a little more, every day, and not expect huge fast results. It also helps if I write down what I eat and set goals.
I'm not sure when I'll start. There are still lots of goodies around, so it may not be until mid January. But I will do it.
Another thing to work on step by step...
Happy New Year everyone.
