I think the worse thing I did was continue to eat a bite of everything (to be polite, of course
but, everything I "bit" was either protein, fat, or carb heavy. One bite of each dish plus 2 crescent rolls and my carb count came out to 70-100 (sometimes not including dessert)! I won't even get started on the leftovers - my Mom usually cooks for 20 and we're only 10-12 so, you know what I mean
To be honest, though, I think it was the heavy combo of protein & fat that kept everything churning for hours afterwards (like dinner affecting me till late afternoon the next day).
New Year's dinner will be quiet; just the two of us and our beef tenderloin and spring mix & veg salad. I'll throw in a piece of garlic bread or maybe some Bernaise sauce just for a few carbs
A light dessert (hmmm, ice cream & berries
and maybe a sip of something warm at midnight - if we can stay awake that late.
Hi, Lanie! We went to Disney for a week. I've been to Florida many times over the years. Folks almost bought a place in Lakeland some years ago. Really like Destin & Panama City Beach (always seemed more temperate in the pan handle). We had a hard time remembering that Christmas was only a week away, being so psychologically programmed for snow
I must admit that I actually LIKE winter. Must be my Scandinavian blood.
Happy New Year!!
