Dinner Decisions

Thursday, September 27, 2012

Its Open House night at school. I find it easier to stay late than go home and then come back. My decision is compounded by distance. In the past, the department would all get together for dinner together as a rare social occasion. This school doesnt have that .. so I'm on my own. Restaurants here are limited and I've narrowed to two choices:
1) a diner = where I can get standard diner food and will likely be able to choose a healthy choice
2) a bbq joint - which has real smokers and smells good when I drive past in the afternoons. This wouldnt be the healthy choice, but would be a rare treat.

Thoughts Sparkers?

PS. I brought my sneakers so I'm actually going to go for a run today. Another blog is forthcoming on how the "New Normal" is actually working.

PPS. No word yet on the "Cookie Job" I'll let y'all know.

    Too little too late, but I'd vote for the BBQ. Half would have been put away before I dig in and that would be lunch for tomorrow. I am good at portion control, but horrible when it comes to sweets. I am sure what ever you decided you'll make the right choices afterwards to balance things out.

    I vote for the diner, too. I love going to diners because they always have a nice variety on the menu and there are always healthy options that keep me in my calorie range.

    Depends on your portion control. Are you able to go to the bbq joint and eat a reasonable amount? If so, dig in and enjoy a treat. If not, the diner is probably the better option. Either way, enjoy your dinner and your run.

    Go with the diner, easier to resist temptation if it's not on the menu! We have open house tonight at my husband's middle school. My youngest attends there too. We'll be doing leftovers for dinner.

    If you think you can restrain yourself I would get BBQ, but if there is any doubt then go to the diner. Good for you for taking your running shoes!

    Personally, I'd go with the diner. Too easy to go overboard with BBQ.
