Do you stuff yourself on holiday food? I don’t mean at parties where you’ve got to be polite. I mean the at-home family holiday meals. I’ve only taken two bites out of my piled-up plate and I’m already thinking about the ‘seconds’ I’m going to get. I’m thinking about the stove and which pots are situated where, and how much food I last saw in them. There was plenty of cooked cabbage and plenty of black-eyed peas, plenty of stew meat and gravy, but not that much rice. There was a whole pan of cornbread squares, so I know I’m gonna get me more of that, slaps some more margarine on it (gotta make sure the cornbread isn’t cold).
Just a couple of hours ago, I was planning my upcoming exercise regimen and the healthy, no so hearty meals I plan to have in my diet. But today, none of that applies. I feel like a bear about to go on hibernation. I know it is a bit sinful to glutton after more than one’s share of food, but I don’t do this regularly. I am a relatively skimpy eater (well, honestly I seek out to be, at least).
I always wondered if we as humans have that a bit of the hibernation instinct; because of the winters.
Anyway, Happy New Year!
