Now's the time to begin planning for the holidays. If you're going to go with the carb-laden menu, only make enough for the ONE meal. It's a holiday dinner, not a pass to gorge for a week afterward on leftovers. I'm already scouring recipes that will still be tasty and yet not have me in tears on the day after Thanksgiving, wishing I hadn't indulged. Just like dining out, if you decide what you're going to eat before you're faced with so many carb options, it's easier to stay on track. Preparation is the key. And by the way, purchase Halloween candy that you DON'T like. It'll be easier to stop your hand going from the candy bowl to your mouth.
