After the holidays

Because of my circumstances (I had a tonsillectomy 1 week ago) I haven't been able to eat much of anything lately and everything I eat tastes like crap - Brian made a delicious 7 cheese mac & cheese for me and all I could enjoy was the smell. I'm really just eating because I have to right now.

This might sound odd, but during this time I've learned to enjoy food by savoring it in my mouth because I'm chewing it much slower - also end up eating less. I've adopted this method because of pain in my throat, but I'm going to try to continue to eat slower and smaller portions once I'm recovered - lets see if I can do this.

Since the holidays are always a difficult time to stay healthy I've decided to focus on enjoying myself BUT also only eat small portions when I'm hungry, even if it's not all healthy stuff.

I was all up for the "virtual recipe club" but for one reason or another I haven't yet tried the recipe Karen posted (which was due on 10/30). I probably won't be able to try it till December so I vote for starting this club back up after the holidays...any thoughts?

Sounds good to me. Jossie do you want to come up with the January recipe?
