So there is all this stuff here in the house for Thanksgiving. There are people here that I love to impress with my cooking skills. I have home made organic pumpkin pie, zucchini bread, all kinds of vegetables, other things. I have been cooking all week. So my normal eating pattern is all strange. The pie is healthy stuff, and smelled marvelous, but has some real butter in the crust. What to do? I had to test one to be sure it came out okay, I have this way of "modifying" recipes and sometimes make real ugly errors in judgement, other times it is inspired. So I had PIE for dinner Tuesday evening. And it was so awesome that I adjusted my meals yesterday to have a small piece again. 3.5 ounces of pie is ample. Who knew?
The family began arriving last night. They were coming in late, so I sat with them and had a soda while they ate their late dinner. I was quite content from my early light meal. This morning the scale rewarded me with another day clearly in my maintenance range. I am pleased that I get to have things that everyone else has on this day. Took a kind of short walk with the dogs this morning, relatively (3 miles) and now I am going to do a bit of work before everyone wakes up. I am thankful. For family, and flying ducks, and palm trees.
