First of all, today was an AMAZING day filled with my joyful nieces, loving family, lots of giving, many laughs, a few temper tantrums, delicious food, good conversation, and LOVE!  But I have to say:  Phew…I am officially in food coma mode!  As I mentioned yesterday, there was no calorie-counting today.  I am super careful and good with my food choices most of the time, so I wanted to take some time to let myself indulge in the foods that I love most over the holidays.  Today I did just that!  Starting with some post-present-opening monkey bread.

Yes, that is my brother with his crazy tattoos in the picture.  It’s his “debut” on my blog, haha.  I actually told him over the holidays that I have this blog, and he showed ZERO interest, so now I refuse to tell him anything more about it!  Ah, sibling love.  Alright, so in between the monkey bread and the desserts (pistachio/jelly/cannoli roll and cannolis), I of course stuffed my face with many more delectable items, so let’s just get straight to it–the food i 8 today, holiday edition!

  • Breakfast:  monkey bread
  • Appetizers:  carrots + guac, celery + peanut butter, veggie stromboli bread (thanks for making it veggie, dad!), cheese + crackers, spinach dip + bread, tomato + mozzarella
  • Dinner:  1/2 a sweet potato, green bean casserole, a buttered roll
  • Dessert:  (as if I didn’t go crazy enough on the apps, here’s where I went a little beyond crazy!)  1/2 a slice of the cannoli cake, a cannoli, rice krispie treat, cupcake, AND Italian honey balls

Stick a fork in me, I’M DONE!!!  Happy holidays everyone!

oh, and PS, I am cleaning up my act over the next few days and will step back on the scale on either Friday or Saturday mornings.  I DO NOT want to see what the scale has to say tomorrow morning, hehe.  I’ll save myself the guilt and give my body some time to recover.
