I hang my head in shame.


Because I’ve been so captivated by the holidays that I’ve forgotten about my blog and my readers.

It’s not that I don’t want to post, I’ve just been caught up with merry making, spirits drinking and all things holiday.

As 2011 approaches I feel the need to post a little about my Christmas dishes and to wish you all a happy and prosperous new year.

For those who resolve to lose weight, this is not the place to visit.  Make your choice, I hope you choose to continue to try my recipes and read about my musings.

What’s my resolution?  The list is too long.  In a nutshell, it goes like this…

1. Get back to working out 3 times a week.

2. Lose those pounds the  holidays have pack on.

3.  Live life as though each day is the last.

4.  Stop procrastinating.

And the list goes on.   As I leave you with my cliffnote  of my list and a pictures of my Christmas dinner, I wish you all a very Happy New Year and I hope you stick to your resolutions.

P.S.  I chose to be rebellious this year and for the first time in my 29 years, not have black eyed peas cook-up on old years night/new years eve.  That’s right, this Guyanese woman did not cook  Cook-up.  I did however make a black eyed peas salsa, after all, a little good luck can’t hurt.
