These are not my tips, but they are a swell guideline.......enjoy!
1.) Avoid carrot sticks at all cost....cheap filler.
2.)Drink as much eggnog as you possibly can, you can't find it any other time of the year.
3.)If something comes with gravy, eat it. Smother it on and over everything. Make a mini-volcano out of your mashed potatoes, and pretend it's hot lava.
4.)As for mashed potatoes, always ask if they are made with whole or skim milk. If they are made with skim milk, pass.
5.)Do not eat all day before going to a party. C'mon it's free!!
6.)If you come across something really good at the buffet table, position yourself nearby and do not budge. Eat as much of it as you can without drawing too much attention to yourself.You may not see that again for another year.
7.)Pies? Have at least one piece of each. When else can you have more than one desert?
8.)Fruitcake? Don't eat fruitcake at a party!
9.)One final tip..If you don't feel terrible when you leave the party...Reread tips and start over.
10.) And remember this motto..."Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in hand, screaming...WHAT A RIDE!!! " (this post is not for signgurl)
