Valentines Day...not blown!!

Monday, February 14, 2011

Hmmm, really thought I was going to blow my diet today, because of Valentines! Had lunch at Rossini's, which is a small little chef owned Italian restaurant by my office. OMG, their food is soooo good and they are always crowded, and they only have 12 tables. BTW, I go there often!! They also portion food in real servings, instead of being able to feed an entire family of 4 with one entrée! Haha.

I told the chef's wife, that I was dieting, and couldn't have my favorite dish (a specialty of his), Pollo, something, fungi. I know it as Chicken with mushroom cream. It's so creamy and flavorful, I was salivating just thinking about it. She told me I would be surprised of the calorie count, so we sat an figured it out. It's 1/2 chicken breast (not skin) pounded thin, with a mound of sautéed mushrooms and a "real" cream mushroom sauce. They serve it with oven baked potato chunks(without oil). Well the count came out to about 700+ calories, in which almost half was due to the cream!! So we we cut the cream sauce in half, and we ended up with 550 calories. Soooo, I indulged.

And I will indulge again, and again in the future!!!

I just have to adjust my calories for the day a little bit. Reallocate and recalculate! JUST FOR TODAY!

    That is so cool that the chef's wife calculated the calories for you and made modifications! That is truly an awesome restaurant to go out of their hectic servicing to do this! I am so glad that there are people in this world who go that extra mile for their patrons! Enjoy your meal!
