I’m truly a little bit nervous on the logistics of how I’m going to eat like 4 bags of chips, 2 creamy dips and a large jar of cheese spread as well as a slew of Christmas cookies before I start up the ol’ diet on January 2. Should I be waking up every two hours to eat Swiss Almond cheese spread on chips? Not sure how I’m going to pull this one off, but have faith in me, dear readers. Anyhow, when things start back up again, I’m going to be eating a LOT more of things like this. Pizza with vegetable crusts. Vegetable crusts without pizza toppings. Things of that nature. That’s why I’m thanking Jenn of Leasing Happiness for this awesome cauliflower pizza crust!

I missed the 19th because I was at Lincoln Park Zoo, drinking hot cocoa with some most excellent marshmallow vodka. Whoops.

Here are today’s recipes for ya!

First off, we have Grasshopper Cake, a recipe my Aunt Sally used to make for my cousin Jon, whose birthday is on Christmas. The funny thing about this cake is that we literally couldn’t keep it on our plates, and not because we’d eat it too fast (we did that, too) – I think it’s a bit top-heavy, so it jumps off the plate, you know, like a grasshopper.

I’m not sure if this is the exact recipe, but it looks very close:

Creme de Menthe Grasshopper Cake
