We are by ourselves on Tuesdays (daughter has a class that night), and our anniversary is Saturday... so hubby decided he wanted a nice quiet meal at someplace nice... lol
It didn't turn out to be all that quiet. Even though this is a place with a great atmosphere -- that doesn't exactly scream "come on in and bring the kids" lol -- right next to us was a table with a mom, dad, and THREE little ones - the youngest in a high chair and a bit noisy. LOL (Didn't bother me, but he was a little disappointed).
Then a laugh for those of you who live near water -- eat at place I don't usually eat. LOL -- I found something (more $$$ than I usually am willing to pay) that sounded good (and it was). I think it was called something like 'Zuppa De Pesche' It had salmon, tilapia, shrimp, scallops, and mussells over linguine with a diablo sauce. I knew I would like salmon, tilapia, and shrimp. I knew I didn't care much fro scallops (just wouldn't eat those), but I had never had mussells - and thought it would be fun to try them. Oh my! I had no idea they would still be in the shells!!!! That made it sooo much fun!
I ate all of the salmon and tilapia, one large shrimp, and some of the mussells along with some of the linguine. I took the rest home, but I doubt I'll eat it as left overs. I just hate leaving large portions on the plate at restaurants. Sometimes they make a big deal of it and it's just easier to take it home. It was a HUGE plate of food.
Anyway.... stayed in my calorie range (second day in a row I think) and got some exercise. All the excercise was cardio and I was hoping for some other exercise too, but since hubby wanted to go out - that took up too much of the night. I hope to get some tonight.
It'll be a challenge though. I just found out that he has someone coming over to help with the garage. Normally it would be no big deal, but with having had the grandbaby every weekend - I've really let the house go. I'd really like it to at least look halfway descent. :$
Well enough rambling.... everyone have a great day!
