Holiday Eating Healthy
Sunday, April 12, 2009
I have to be honest. I totally forgot it was Easter until Good Friday rolled in and the kids were off school. I had nothing planned. And even after I realized the holiday was upon us, I had no urge to cook a big traditional meal on Sunday. It was just going to be the 4 of us, nobody else to try and impress with my culinary (cough) skills. So, the hubby opted we go out for Chinese.
Well, instead, we drove out to the Domain (high end shopping outside mall in Austin) and wandered in to the Kona Grill. Goodness I'm sure glad we did because I had THE BEST salad I've ever had in my life. Or, I was just really hungry. It was just a chinese chicken salad, but it was just so tasty. Cabbage, green onions, slivered almonds and ramen noodles all lightly tossed in a sweet soy sauce with some pecan crusted chicken. Phenomenal. Since it was a holiday and I had the calories to spare, I even had part of a banana pudding dessert. It wasn't what I expected (it was baked) but it was really good. Oh, yeah, and we also had our first experience with what I guess you call sushi...it was albacore tatiki which, not to sound ignorant, was just some partially cooked tuna in a delicious sauce of I don't know what. It had black sesame seeds in it though.
I'll post the total calories after I tally them up. But, all in all, I think it was my first moderate, healthy holiday dinner of my life. Yay me!
