ON THE BACK BURNER

Nov. 28

It really isn't fair that Chanukah this year, comes just after Thanksgiving. My stomach can't expand any more than it has. After turkey and all,of the many dishes that we all made, we now have lotkes and chocolate gelt and filled donuts to contend with. I would never consider not indulging in all of these traditional foods of the holidays and saying to eat in moderation just doesn't work when your eyes are bigger than your stomach. I practiced making lotkes today and I haven't lost my skill since I made them last year. They are a once a year treat. I have pledged to myself that after this round of turkey, stuffing , cranberries, corn pudding, kale salad, caramelized onions, gravy,Brussels sprouts, mashed potatoes, apple pie,  cranberry buckle, and pumpkin whip cream pie, lotkes, sour cream,apple butter and three soups.. I won't eat again for 24 hours. There must be a name for this diet plan. Maybe glutton anonymous .
