Holiday Parties

Thursday, December 08, 2011

My husband and I were going to a church banquet on Monday night. I am a personal friend of the pastor's wife of that church and I know what kind of food she would most likely put on the menu. She grew up in Birmingham, AL and is a true southern cook. Having lived in the great state of NC for 14 yrs I am well aquainted with the cooking style. They like to throw a "little fat back" in just about everything including their vegetables.

I was very concerned that there would be nothing there that I could eat so, I decided to take away any temptation I might have by eating a great big salad and my little piece of organic dark chocolate with organic peanut butter before we left so that I wouldn't be hungry and end up eating things that really wouldn't be good for me at all. It worked. I got there and just to be polite I put 1 tiny tsp of some of the least offensive foods on my plate. People were laughing at my plate. That's alright, let'm laugh. I went to bed feeling great. I had no regrets and no weight gain to deal with.

Yah, bring on the holidays, I can deal with them!!!
