Today was the second annual holiday progressive potluck for my company and I am officially in a food/sugar coma as we speak.
I made sure to start out the day with a good breakfast. I’m on a yogurt kick, lately. Today’s combo included vanilla Chobani, canned pumpkin, rolled oats, pumpkin pie spice, and a few pecans.
potluck it up.
My saving grace in this ordeal today was there was not a huge amount of vegetarian friendly food. There were a few things that may have been but I didn’t feel like being the person that went around asking about everything so where there was doubt, I avoided.
Our first stop was the appetizers. Black bean and corn salsa, I love you. I had some fruit and bread, as well. And a second piece of bread. I love my carbs.
Second stop: main dishes. This was definitely the floor where I felt pretty out of luck. This is also where I learned my lesson of why I should ask. That tasty looking casserole that appears to just have beans? Oh no. There was some meat in the chili. Shoot. At least I only had a couple bites, but still. Always ask. Those sweet potatoes though, they were some of the best I have ever had. There was this sweet, crunchy topping that was simply uh-may-zing. So much so that I had a second scoop.
And finally, the dessert stop. My truest weakness. Brownies. Buckeyes. Cookies. All so tasty.
This was at the point where I had to know my limits and I stopped while I was (mostly) ahead.
Now that I’m stuffed, I have dinner club to look forward to in a few hours! Bad scheduling on my part? Yep.
If you work, does your company do anything to celebrate this time of year?
