... let loose at a Polish Festival.
No more polish festivals for me. Not for a while anyhow. How do those people eat those foods all the time??? I was there and all I had were two wine coolers (I know I know... they just had a really crappy selection of lite beer) then I only ate 1/2 cup Haluski (I gave the rest to Joe and made him eat it) and then 3 Galumpkis. They were small too so I don't know, maybe the numbers are off but they can't be that far off.
Those suckers are 300 calories a piece and 17.5 grams of fat!!!
Now, like I said before, it is possible they were less as the portions were small but I can only go by the nutritional info I can find on the net for homemade galumpkis and while each recipe states the serving size is 1 galumpki, it doesn't really specify how big that galumpki is. I've seen them as big as 5 inches long and completely stuffed. These were really small, like palm of my hand small. BUT - NO EXCUSES. NO MORE FESTIVALS.
Goober is already talking about going back tomorrow. Uh, have fun there honey. I'll stay here and have my banana/peach smoothie and call it a night thank you very much.
I know he'll bring some home and that is fine, but I can monitor them much better here by having a half of one if the urge hits me or something.
Oh well, yet another decision made on the rocky road to weight loss. FESTIVALS = BAD. Unless you eat nothing else that day I guess. Sheesh.
Back to the drawing board.
