I made a chicken vegetable soup with shredded lettuce stirred in till it wilted. For dinner I cooked steak, a baked potato and green beans. And for dessert, yesterday I made my first ever pecan pie - no cookies this year. Also, no soda.

Dinner today is seafood. Crab leg, shrimp, turkey sausage, potato and sweet corn boil. I'm all turkeyed out.

We have turkey and all the trimmings, an almost exact copy of Thanksgiving meal.

That's interesting, Tina. I imagine many people have special, big meals at Christmas. We don't tend to do that. The holidays I think of for special meals are Thanksgiving, St. Patrick's Day, and Easter. I think that's it. I suppose Valentine's Day ...

The dinner selections were numerous, and I didn't bother with the ham, corn, or mashed potatoes. I was picky about what I ate, having a small piece of prime rib roast with a little gravy, one potato croquet slightly bigger than the size of a golf ball, broccoli, mushrooms, artichoke casserole, and salad. It sounds like a lot, but I had a good amount of vegetables. I skipped dessert altogether.

Growing up in my family Thanksgiving and Christmas always had huge turkeys and tons of sides and I have carried that family tradition on in my household. However this year, we did something different and had a seafood themed dinner for Christmas. The kids loved it.

Hi everyone. Just joined today and it was because of the holiday meal(s) I experienced. I love my BFF and the fact that I just get to show up but wow, there was just soooo, much food! She always tells me that I eat like a bird. I think I just eat in moderation! That said, I definitely ate too much and i felt terrible. Was grateful but also happy to come home and just eat a salad. Nice to meet all of you!

Dear Westcoastgurl -

Welcome! It's great to have you in our forums. I do think different families have different expectations of how much one should eat. Many people grew up in food-means-love households and are trained to eat as much as they possibly can. Moderation is a much healthier route!

I do love salads smile

Lisa “very veggie” Shea smile
