It’s that time of year again when people start referring to it being “that time of year” again. I hate it. I hate that I say it, but I say it anyway because it’s a nondescript, small talky, dead air filler that is by no means offensive to anyone. Just irritating.
Believe it or not, I’m a people person.
I also strongly dislike “gosh, it really snuck up on me” and “can you believe it’s right around the corner” because it almost never means anything good, right? It’s like we just skipped over a bunch of awesome stuff and now here we are. The dreaded holidays. Now before you freak the frick out because it’s your favorite time of year, allow me to explain. Just as those the holidays can sneak up on you, so can the subsequent poundage on your waistline that is a result of all the merriment.
Yay! It’s almost-I have nothing to wear and my pants feel too tight on me-season!
I blame Reese’s and mashed potatoes because they are both vegetarian and gluten-free and after a few glasses of holiday wine I have no chill with either.
Okay, now the good news. THERE’S HOPE FOR US CARB LOVING MANIACS. Cauliflower Mash! I know, not that revolutionary. BUT this one is different because it’s not super-duper heavy with a bazillion calories so we can still eat that low carb dessert.
Bring on the pie.
