Ma'am, put down the frosted santa and step away from the cookie platter!

Eventually the world will run out of Christmas cookies and I will be unable to consume anymore. Right?

It is hard to believe how many cookies I ate. If I am completely honest, this is FAR fewer cookies than I would have consumed if I wasn't thinking about the fact that I would have to log them all here. So I guess the food log still helps, but Christ! It is a little embarrassing to write down that I ate (by myself) a DOZEN Christmas cookies today alone AND 5 Lindt Chocolate balls.
We had a great Christmas. The family was all very happy. I caught a cold and was feeling a little tired, but it was a good day.

Christmas Food Log

JC French toast & banana/coffee
2 Lindt chocolate balls at pet sitting client/powerbar before leaving for Christmas Dinner
Lunch/Dinner (We do holiday meals early 1pm)
1 sm slice ham (I do not like ham)
1/2 c. yukon potatoes (very dry and boring tasting so they must have been good for you)
1/2 c. green bean casserole (not good for you)
1 c. yams w/ brown sugar and marshmallows (not good for you)

7 Christmas cookies (Christ! How many Christmas cookies can one human consume?)
sm. slice of apple pie with about 1/4 c. (read : TINY) sized scoop of ice cream. (I got the smallest pc. of pie. I think it was a statement about all the cookies I ate.)
5 more Christmas cookies and 3 more Lindt chocolate balls, again at the pet sitting house. (Lord almighty! Make it stop!)
