Nope! I visit friends and family for the holidays, and I've been deciding not to take anything home for myself, unless it's a small portion of something more healthy (like duck, turkey, or sweet potatoes). This way I'm not tempted to over indulge.

Absolutely. Luckily for us, the feast was at a family member's home! So we could take whatever leftovers we chose. I left all the desserts and sweet stuff.

We still have a portion (or more) of spiral-sliced ham.
And a couple portions of wonderfully rare rib roast (and two ribs!) that can be quick-roasted again in the toaster oven.
I caved in and brought home his mom's homemade potato salad, which he loves - and doesn't get here because we don't "do" potatoes. I left the potato casserole and the mac-n-cheese, which we also don't need.
I love cantaloupe, and she bought a big package of it for the fruit tray. I left the cut-up pieces, but brought the 4-5 wedges home. I cleaned out that fruit tray of its apple slices, too.
We got a small container of her homemade roast-beef gravy, which I don't make.
I left, under duress, the temptation of homemade bread and rolls, which wouldn't have lasted an instant if I'd brought it back here. I have no self control with that sort of thing.
His aunt makes big plates and tins of homemade cookies as Xmas presents, but since she knows DH is diabetic, and we're both supposed to be restricted-carb, she makes banana bread for us and his sister (who also is T2D). I didn't have the heart, this year or last, to inform her that we can no more have the banana bread than the cookies. I left them.

Other than that, I'm very happy to be back in my own kitchen, with my own preferred foods. I was craving gelatin, of all things! I've been noshing raw veggies and dip. And pickles! Our locally raised, truly pastured eggs are calling to me. I've got some of my homemade bone broth defrosting, and that sounds great for dinner, maybe with one of those roasted bones! mmmm

Leftovers can be challenging here. I can't eat large quantities, nor often. I can't get through leftovers quickly enough to feel "safe" about them, so if I don't freeze some, or can't get DH to polish them off, I end up having to toss them, which really breaks my heart. But I'm not going to eat them just to eat them. I'm not the compost bin!

I do love having all this "special" food to choose from now and then though. Mom's buffet! yum

I have some ham left; I need to freeze some of it. I froze a bunch of cookies and will take them to a New Year's Eve get-together we're going to-- and try to send them home with someone there. LOL.

The kids just finished up the rolls and the punch from Christmas dinner . . .

everything that we get rid of is one less thing tempting me!

I suggest that people with leftover throw them away....food starts to spoil after three days. If the food was sitting out the day of the party food will spoil even sooner.

Begin Fresh Everyday. Try Again!!

Yes, ham is enough for breakfast, tamales are enough for one more meal, and turkey is enough for one more meal. Some treats are saved for New Year's Eve though, and then it's done with. Even the two Birthday cakes are done, sent home with the kids.

I still have some ham and some peppermint cheesecake. Both of which will go into the freezer today.
.
I still have a few pieces of candy and some cookies but I think those will go to work with me on Monday. I might take the cheesecake too, if I remember to pull it out of the freezer.

I made ham and bean soup yesterday which turned out really good.

Yes, but they are starting to get less and less now. I had Christmas at my house this year. I ended up with more for than I needed. Many people that said they were coming didn't show up. They ones that did come I made sure that had a carrier box of food to take home with them.

Progress may be slow, but it happens!
No such thing as last place only finishers.

I still have leftovers and we are sick of them. I'm throwing them out and getting a fresh start on healthier foods that I'm serving in smaller portions. Feeling too full these days!

Keep a sense of humor. Remember, laughing burns calories too!

Laugh until it hurts! It's one of the few things in life that's still free!!
