“My normally mild-mannered aunt becomes a total carb-pusher during the holidays,” a friend recently said, recounting last Christmas when she laid a guilt trip for refusing her dark chocolate peppermint patties. “You would have thought I had totally betrayed my family and would be cut out of the will, the way my aunt reacted!” Holidays bring […]

Fat Rat

“Really?” I asked sarcastically, pointing to the plastic pumpkin loaded with miniature candy bars and other high-fructose corn syrup concoctions that often pass as food.

I’m not sure if yours gets this crowded, but Target near where I live becomes a zoo on Sunday afternoon.
