Christmas has me being a weather related housebound victim in Texas this year. I was well prepared for this eventuality.
You are looking at my Traditional Texas Thai Christmas Dinner in the picture.
That is a bowl of Coconut Chicken soup on the left. Those are Coconut Shrimp on the big plate next to Jasmine Rice covered with Stir-Fried Celery, Onion, Green Pepper and Garlic, with a Peach, Apricot Oyster Sauce. The little bowl has a spicy dipping sauce for the Coconut Shrimp.
The only non-traditional thing I had was Blackberry Pie with Vanilla Ice Cream.
The Queen of Wink made Butterscotch Pie. I'd never heard of that before. I had a bad incident with Butterscotch when I was a kid, the details of which I do not remember, but ever since then I have found Butterscotch disturbing. I have a similar problem with bread sticks.
Clearly I have some culinary issues.
I'm sure that pigging out on all this Classic Traditional Christmas food and the weather related inactivity has caused my weight gain problem to grow worse. I must determine a plan to rectify this situation before it slides further out of control with the return of a beer belly and man boobs.
