Today bunch of us decided to go out to eat after church this afternoon.
I thought to myself, "Hmmm...Maybe Fajitas will be the best choice because the meat is lean and then there is rice, beans, lettuce, a little bit of guacamole, and some sour cream on the side."
So that's what I ordered.
Then our chips arrived.
A few minutes later our salsa arrived.
So we started munching on chips and talking. I was eating slowly.
A little while later the waitress came over to take our drink order, and she came back with most of them. So we kept snacking on chips and talking. About 5 minutes later, she came back with the rest of the drinks.
And we kept munching and talking as she came to take our food orders.
And we waited...and munched...and talked...and laughed...and waited...and then someone ordered MORE CHIPS!
And so we talked and laughed and waited for quite a long time for our food and I got caught up in the conversation and started munching again.
Our whole group wasn't able to sit together, so I looked over to the other table in the next room where four of us were sitting, and saw that they (who had a different waitress) were halfway through with their food! (We waited a LONG time!)
Finally, one plate of food came out. Then two more, but none of us had any silverware. But we hadn't even noticed until now because we were having such a great time laughing and talking and munching.
But someone got up and went to find silverware for us all and in a few minutes, the rest of us got our food.
I ate one fajita, along with toppings of guacamole and sour cream, and then some of the meat along with about 1/2 of another tortilla, as well as 1/2 of the beans and rice. When I finished that I asked for a carry-out box.
Then I drove home fat and happy after time out with friends, which I haven't had in months, and haven't had with my husband AND friends since... uhm.... ? (because of his work schedule).
Now I just need for the food to settle a bit so I can roll off this sofa and BELLY DANCE! (Um, yeah...NOBODY needs to see that!)
So what did I learn???
The NEXT we go, I will have a PRE-PLANNED meal to order and know what it will cost me in calories. (I plan to go to the restaurant this week to look over their menu and count the calories with my smart phone!) AND I plan to fore go the chips while I wait for my meal.
Party on, y'all!
