I'm going to try to load up on the turkey breast and just a touch of the sides and see how that works out. At least we aren't eating until about 5pm so I won't eat it all for lunch and again later that day for leftovers. And back to work Friday so not picking at leftovers all day.
I like to do the dishes and clean up the kitchen before going to sit down after a big meal so I think that helps to keep off the sleepies. At least for a little while.
