Owning up to pasta and not apologizing
Thursday, August 23, 2012
We had a group luncheon today. Our postdoc from Napoli, Italy is leaving soon so she brought in homemade pasta carbonara and tiramisu. I had giant first and second helpings and had completely used up my calories for the day by 12:30pm. And I'm not feeling guilty about it! Yes, my stomach felt stretched a little too thin this afternoon. Yes, I'm going to try to squeeze in an extra run this weekend. But seriously, how often is someone from Naples going to serve you fresh macaroni with homemade carbonara followed by dessert?
