Thanksgiving Holiday Tip #6

emoticon That piece of pie ... how big should it be? Here's an easy trick to show you exactly how big. Take a paper plate .... just a cheap one that will fold easily. Fold it in half. Fold it in half again. Fold it in half again. That's a total of 3 folds. That's the size your piece of pie should be. One eighth of the pie. That's your portion. Now, you have a visual of what you should reach for!

    Thank, I'll try this for my pie, now if I just could figure out how much else I get to eat, guess I should really plan ahead!
