Snack or dinner before party?

Saturday, December 15, 2012

We have a party to go to tonight. At 7. I'm assuming it's not dinner, but I have no idea WHAT it is (a hint to your guests would be nice - just sayin'!).

So I'm trying to decide: early dinner? Late snack? I know I can't go hungry!

I did a whole bunch of baking again yesterday. Paleo and/or non gluten because one of the hosts of tonight's dinner has celiac disease. I taste tested everything again - but didn't overindulge the way I did on Thursday (which wasn't terrible, but could've been better). Funny how stuff without sugar & flour isn't as addictive.

It was all good, but not as tasty as the day before's baking. I still love sugar; I'll freely cop to that. But I also know it's not great for me & I try to limit it usually (the rest of the cookies went into work with DH; I've no idea what I'll do when he retires). Still, I'm keeping a bit of it for myself - I didn't keep any of the really tasty stuff; one day of it was enough!

Which reminds me I ought to bake something for the vet . . . maybe the pet sitters . . . then again maybe not. I would like to post a loss this week after all - even if it's only the small amount I gained this week.

How do you eat before parties?

    Tough call since you don't know if it's dinner or not. For me, 7pm is pretty typical for dinner time. Get home at 6, take the dog out, start cooking...

    I think if it were me, I would have a late lunch, and then maybe a small snack before you go. That way if it is a dinner party you'll be able to eat, and if not, at least you won't be starving ;)

    But most importantly, enjoy yourself!

    Unlike the other response, I usually assume that if the party is at 7, it's not a dinner. No one I know eats that late. I'll be interested
    to hear how it turned out.

    My rule of thumb: never assume. The only one who knows what will be in our stomach that night is you. IMHO, I would eat a small meal before,, even if they have a full dinner, you can eat like a sparrow and feel better about yourself that you do not have to be a member of the Clean Plate Club.
    Drinking a lot of water helps too..

    Most of all, enjoy yourself!!
