Eating Tips For The Holidays

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)

I have no problem following those. However, the only one I would add to wear s-t-r-e-t-c-h pants. Do you know if they have one for the drinking too? If not, I am sure I can make one up of me own.

And you never know about Brett...this may be his last game in GB and I WILL BE THERE...maybe not in leathers but I will be there!

ok, i like carrot sticks and loathe eggnog...so i am breaking # 1 & 2....

as for the multiple desserts.....the rule at the extended family si that my mother must be last in the dessert line because she does sample everything. she skimps on dinner just so she has room for massive dessert. of course we also lob the rolls at people from across the room if anyone is silly enough to ask for them to be 'passed.'
