Since tomorrow is Thanksgiving, I’m sure all of you health-minded people have some sort of plan of action to avoid a day over caloric over indulgences and the onset of holiday weight gain.
You know, things like:
- Wear the tightest pants you own
- Drink more water, like gallons more
- Eat only vegetables
- Befriend the family dog to get rid of extra food
- Wire your jaw shut
Who knows, but I’m sure you have some idea of how you’re going to approach the one day a year where gluttony is not only accepted but praised.
“Why Johnny, you only ate 3 servings. You look too thin. Did your stomach shrink?”
“Suzie! Congratulations! You just ate that entire turkey. Want more? There’s another 25 lb turkey roasting in the oven and should be done soon…”
Well, I’m not health-minded, I’m stomach minded and I promised our families batches of Mama Pea’s Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Balls for tomorrow’s festivities. However my beater had it’s own plan of action and started sparking and smoking. Oh well. I still made them. I’m not that easily defeated. Nice try, beaters, but I’m still wearing my sweatpants tomorrow. That’s my plan of action!
But regardless what your plan of action is, I sincerely hope that your well thought out plans include extra servings of family, friends, laughter, love and maybe a slice or two of pumpkin pie.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
I hope you know that I am very thankful for every single one of you!!
See you on Friday!
…assuming that we survive the meal and Black Friday shopping…
