I deboned the turkey that I bought in November. It took a lot longer than I remember, mainly because the phone kept ringing. Then I had to make a conference call, and the handyman came over to finish putting my back room back together, and….
So much for eating healthy spa food for my vacation. I made the rice-stuffed turkey, a green bean casserole, yams, and a fruitcake to use up the last of the candied fruit from December. This morning, I decided I wanted bacon and apple pancakes. Tomorrow, I'm going to make a babka and a Friday challah. Oh, and the handyman brought over a pizza he didn't plan to finish, so there went my plan to have a piece of fruit and some bread and cheese for lunch.
On the other hand, I started wearing a pedometer last weekend and found out that I take about 15,000 steps on work days and at least 6,000 on my days off. That puts me squarely in the not-as-much-of-a-couch-potato-as-I-thought-I-was camp. No wonder I seem able to eat when I'm hungry and not put on weight. It's when I eat when I'm not hungry that I get in trouble.
