Day #8 for the October Unprocessed 2011 challenge over at the Eating Rules blog. It’s been going very well, maybe a tiny flub or two at the beginning, but for the most part, I’m going strong!

Friday night we were at the inlaws for Christmas Eve, eating comfort foods I eat probably only once a year. Hot dogs [...]
