The house filled with the scent of the cooking turkey. If we were having a big crowd, we would also add a ham roast (as we will be doing this year) that we will cook the day before. Always our best recipes to side the course. Mounds of potatoes with pools of gravy. Piles of stuffing. And the PIES. Gotta have pumpkin and pecan. It is a tradition that has truly twisted into a condition if you are a fatty like me. No, no don't get me wrong. I am not blaming my over eating on years of family Thanksgiving..no it is just one more reason I was able to totally pork out. Believe me I could pile it daily. This year Thanksgiving WILL be different. It will be a sharing and a celebration of our good fortune and abundance, but not shoving it all into my mouth.
Thinking further the overeating part could be thought of so "New Worlder" ...considering history. Share today and take it all tomorrow. I have thought about history and how I would hope that I would not be a part of the slave driving,lynching, hanging and massacre hate of The New World.
You know what I am thankful for? Is how dieting these months I have learned some moderation. I go berserk on the binging so much less. And the cliche' fits - Eating to live not living to eat.
Monday was hard, Tuesday was easier. I am slowly gaining back my mojo. Water is happening. I think I will recover the wildness of last week.
Good journey. Good dieting.
