Eat free food and "Yule" have a good time!

See that really beautiful cookie to the left? So beautiful, so symmetrical, so Christmassy, because honestly, when do you ever see them made besides the time that St. Nick stops by? At any rate, I am at this VERY MOMENT baking these cookies, though mine will not be symmetrical. Also, I forgot to buy creamy peanut butter, so I had to use a reduced fat "peanut spread" I had at home, plus a half cup of chunky peanut butter. A real innovator, that's me!

My point is, if you are friends with me and see me tomorrow, you will get to eat these cookies for free. I, on the other hand, will have to rely on the kindness of strangers to get my free food.

Today I simply had to rely on the kindness of co-workers. Since the office is trying to conserve, a lot of departments are having individual potluck lunches. Which is WONDERFUL for ME! See, at lunch time today I was hungry, and I had packed a very depressing, "I'm a single woman in the city" Smart Ones. But on my way to the bathroom I noticed a major party going on in Conference Room 8B. Every 15 minutes or so I made my way over there to see if they had put out the leftover food. Finally at 2 pm they did. I ate Entenmann's cake, fruit salad, a brownie, and a homecake cupcake. Yippee!

Pants are getting tighter though. Not good. I'll just have to drink a lot more Coke Zero.
