Almost over..............those days of preparation, excitement, decorating, raising a glass, donning holiday attire, wrapping/unwrapping, hugging and kissing loved ones (well that goes on year round), and of course eating! Oh my, the eating that's been done over this past week of celebration!
Every year I try to change the habit of cooking, baking, and then eating things I'd never eat in the other fifty one weeks of the year. It never works out though, Christmas traditions are just that, traditional! After company left we were left to finish up the leftover plum pudding - with brandy butter no less, the "better than any other year" mince pies, the holiday tin of ginger cookies, and so much more. Do you do that too?
Plain old toast and marmalade sounds really good at this point in time........and as soon as those bits of holiday china are packed away, plain, healthy, easy eating will return. My kitchen will return to the daily soup pot on the stove, crunchy salad greens in the crisper, and lots of plans to eat much healthier in January.
