Temptation hit on Christmas Eve.
I had to take a few bites of turkey. Especially considering it almost burned my sister’s house down. Flames and all, coming out of the oven, while my sister and mom panicked and opened and closed the oven, essentially fanning the fire! My sister is running around trying to get the fire extinguisher while we were all in shock that she was about to douse the turkey with it. It took my chef cousin to react and merely turn the oven OFF and close the oven door. Who knew it could be so simple…
Anyways, so of course my bro-in-law makes a comment about the portion (small, I might add!) of meat on my plate “I thought you weren’t eating meat!”–yes, that’s the goal. But I’m not 100% overnight…it will take some time.
I couldn’t resist the bacon either. My belly was not happy. sigh…
However, damage control kicked it the next morning. I was given the best gift EVER! Something I’ve been dreaming about for over a year now.
Yes, I know, I’m weird. But it’s the most awesome-est piece of machinery ever! So I whipped up a green smoothie, this time putting in some swiss chard leaves in with my banana, almond milk, peanut butter, and vanilla extract. You will NOT taste the swiss chard leaves!
mmmm… all better now.
