It's begun. That subtle shift into the holiday season. I caught myself unwrapping a piece of Halloween candy at 10:30 in the morning the other day at work. Unfortunately, it wasn't until it was actually in my mouth that I thought, "Gah. What am I doing?!"
Then I sighed, leaned back in my chair and thought, let the battle begin. The battle being the one to not spend the next two months grazing on all manner of fattening and terribly tasty foods, just because they're around.
Oh, and they'll be around.
Bowls of Halloween candy that subtly lead up to a day of late-November comatose feasting, which then gives way to little dishes of holiday chocolates, cookies frosted and shaped into the most delectable treats, hot cocoa sipped by roaring fires, hearty soups and warm slices of bread, candied pecans and holiday party hors d'oeuvres.
