Birthday's and Food

Thursday, July 18, 2013

Birthday's can be such a difficult time when deciding what to eat. They are a definite treat but how far do you take it?

My birthday is coming up and my mother in law (MIL) is taking me out for lunch today to celebrate. I get to choose where we're going so I'm choosing the Indian buffet restaurant that I love. Because I don't eat wheat there are quite a few things I can't eat like nann, pakoras and samosas are all out. The rice is just filler and I'm not wasting stomach space on it. I can't wait to tuck into the chicken korma, butter chicken, shahi baingan (creamy eggplant with cashews), and tandoori chicken. I'm not ashamed to admit that I will eat as much as I can hold. I don't go there very often, I'm making good food choices and I want to get my MIL's money's worth.

    Sounds reasonable, and delicious. emoticon

    I am sure there is a historical reason for birthday cakes, but I never liked cake. I would have licked all the frosting off, and thrown out the cake part if I could have..lol. Maybe why I am a diabetic? Have a great Birthday, and get your money's worth.

    Excellent! I don't know why people feel obligated sometimes to eat totally off plan for special occasions.

    My birthday food treat would include lots of seafood - lobster is totally on plan, but still totally special.

    (Dang! No emoticon for lobster!)
