"I've decided that I'm going to eat with impunity for the next two weeks, and then come January 1, I'm going to start a program", she said with conviction.
Aunt Chrissy and I held the annual Rich Sisters Day of Baking and Christmas Cursing Extravaganza on Saturday, and I am happy to report that we now have the following items carefully containerized and ready.
Ready for what, I'm not really sure, but we bonded. Let's just leave it at that.
10 dozen koulorakia (those damn Greek twist cookies)
8 dozen cuccidati (Dad's favorite -- Sicilian fig cookies)
450 reindeer eyes (you know, the round pretzels with a melted Rolo and an M&M inside)
7 dozen fat girl crispie treats (also known as Ooey Gooey Karo Krispers)
3 pounds of white chocolate bark
3 pounds of dark chocolate bark
5 pounds of peanut butter fudge
9 dozen Buckeyes (peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate -- from our homeland)
6 dozen espresso snow cap cookies
....and a partridge in a pear treeeeeee!
Oh, and did I mention that I seem to have also developed an unfortunate Jelly Belly addiction as well as a ham and cheese panini made with garlic Naan bread fixation?
That last one I'm blaming on Aunt Chrissy entirely, since she's the one that bought the damn naan bread in the first place.
I just wish my mind didn't work in this twisted and evil way that makes me want to put everything on my panini press.
Even I am appalled as I read this, and I can promise you that January 2nd will find me face down in a salad.
With Russian dressing.
Oh, and some of those really crunchy and buttery Pepperidge Farm croutons.
And a pickle! We have to have a pickle!
Seriously, kids. If I so much as mention anything other than vegetables in 2012, will somebody come put me in a facility? I can only widen doorways so much around here before the structural integrity of the house is compromised, and I'm quickly running out of my quadruple X sweatpants supply.
What did you do this weekend?
