All This Food!!!

Right before Christmas, I was on an awesome fitness routine. Exercising regulary - light weights 5 days a week, doing a 4 mile walk 5 days a week. Eating in moderation, lots of fruits and veggies, easy on the starches, etc. Balance is the key for me, if I deprive myself,that is not good!!, but if I do allow a treat, moderation is the key.
Then came along the Christmas season...still we did not have an abundance of events to attend etc. Then last week it all bombarded! Dear husband and I went Christmas shopping and had lunch at a fabulous buffet restaurant. Then two days later we took the kids to an amusement park and again ate a fabulous buffet. Sunday night we enjoyed celebrating Christmas at my mother in law's home with of course more delicious food. Christmas night I prepared dinner for my family which is much smaller than dear husbands. I cooked for 12 and I'll quickly share the menu:

Baked Ham
Turkey Breast
Cornbread Dressing
Sweet Potatoe Souffle
Collard Greens
Macaroni and Cheese
Acre Peas
Dinner Rolls
and of course dessert
Chocolate Mousse
Pecan Pie

So,of course, there is tons of leftovers here. And then...I tried this new recipe for Ranch Potatoes which I will be posting on my cooking blog.

So, I surely need to get back to my pre-Christmas routine - once all this food is gone!!!

But I plan to post some great recipes on my cooking blog and share some treasures from the Lord soon. Keep watching!
