This year is different than any other year, as far as food goes. We usually have cookies and candy all over the house. We usually wake up to sweet rolls covered in yummy frosting. We usually have ham covered in brown sugar and pineapple, with mash potatoes, gravy, candy, cookies, pies and more food then you can ever imagine. This year we are eating healthy. We are still having ham...but a small ham (small portions) and sweet potatoes, salad, beans, and butternut squash. The Jello is made with sugar free Jello and fat free cool whip and low fat cottage cheese. That and rice pudding (fat free cool whip and sugar free pudding and brown rice) will be our deserts! Santa is getting a different treat this year...Carrots, a hard boiled egg and nuts. this is the note my kids wrote to Santa:
|This is the answer the kids got the next morning!!!!|
I think it is awesome that we have changed so much that the kids would think of something like this...instead of complaining that we made no cookies they made it fun!
