There are a group of us that meet every Tuesday for lunch at a small restaurant around the corner from the Church we all attend. We have been meeting there every Tuesday for years and so we have become very good friends. The only problem with going to the same place is that you become so familiar with the menu and somewhat bored with eating the same specials every week. We do like the fact that we get waited on promptly and our coffee cups are kept filled. Most of the time we have the place to ourselves and can laugh and talk as loud as we want to. Usually I order a salad.
Today I ordered a Fish Sandwich I don't know why really ~ guess I was just tired of salads and being so good about my choices and only losing a pound. When it came it was on a small bun, a small white fish fillet ~ no more then 3oz fried to a crisp brown. On the side was lettuce and tomato, along with tiny containers of condiments. Now I was looking at it and thinking there are probably 500 or 600 calories at least in the lunch. I ate it ~ used very little mayo did not eat the top of the bun and when through was still hungry. Next time will order my regular Chef Salad with oil and vinegar dressing on the side.
Tonight I checked out the calorie count. Could only find the MacDonald's Fish Sandwich listed ~ calories 370. Not as bad as I had thought. I had stayed well within my calorie count today. Sigh of relief!!
