January Menu

I totally caved this whole holiday season. I pretty much just threw in the towel with exercising after my 5k in October. And as for indulging in holiday sweets, I didn't even TRY to restrain myself. Ok, maybe there was that one time...oh, who am I kidding? It's like a complete food fest from Thanksgiving to New Years, and it doesn't help that both my daughters' birthdays are in December and early January. I guess it's good that it's only one time of year and we can get it all done and over with and move on. As much as I love fudge and caramel and egg nog, I think I've had enough. I'm sure I'll be craving it come next holiday season though.

Well, my waist is not getting any smaller, so onto some lighter fare this month with lots of veggies, salads and soups. You know the drill, what's highlighted is linked back to previous recipes, the others I will post as I go. Got any suggestions for me, just leave them in the comments.
