I survived the Thanksgiving holiday without too much trouble. I did have a very small portion of stuffing, mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes. Maybe about two or three small bites of each. It really satisfied me. I filled up on the dip and celery and the deviled eggs that I brought for appetizers. It wasn't a perfect weekend by any means, but I would say compared to last year, it was a success. We'll see how I do when I weigh in tomorrow. I have been checking my weight and I'm about the same. I'm hoping for a little loss though. I need some to catch up with all of you!
Cooking for a group is always a challenge, but I did as many of you recommended and tried to make what I was cooking fit into the BFC guidelines. Here in the Philadelphia area, we are famous for our philly cheesesteaks. I made some for lunch one day, and put my portion on a new Flatout product that I found. It was very good, and I didn't miss that chewy, doughy roll. I really like this new product, as it fold nicely and makes a great paninni type sandwich if you grill it in the pan or use a paninni maker.

P.S. For those of you who are on Pinterest, I am obsessed with it! I have to limit it because there is so much information and I can't stop looking at it.
Thought for the day: There comes a time in life when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh and forget the bad, focus on the good. So love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life and getting back up is living - author unknown
