Out to eat

Friday, March 21, 2014

My husband has decided he wants to go out to eat tonight again. He is very partial to steak and wants to go to his favorite restaurant. He wants me to be excited about this place too, but I am not a steak fan in the least. They have chicken items on the menu, but I HATE going out to eat and ordering a "grilled chicken breast"!! Give me a break! I can make that myself at home and for a whole lot cheaper than what you get charged when you go out.

I looked ahead at the menu and have come up with my plan. I know my husband wants to order an appetizer, not a healthy one for that matter. (Never seems to be too many of those around anyway). So my plan is to order a small house salad and bring some of my own chopped up chicken to put on top. Maybe I will add a few chopped up vegetables in it as well. I will forgo the cheese and egg and croutons and maybe even the dressing. I am trying to think of something to put on my chicken that will eliminate the need for dressing, but still working on that. Then I will be able to eat some of the appetizer and I know I will be plenty satisfied. The rolls, cinnabutter and peanuts will go to his side of the table.

So much is going on in my life right now. I take on other people's troubles and worry about them for them!! Not a good thing. Anyway, I am trying so hard to eat the way I know I should and need to focus more on that. I need to do more to take care of me and I will better be able to handle what comes around in life.

    I admire your ability to plan ahead like that and be responsible about your dinner choices. I rarely go out to eat so when I do I lose all my resolve and end up ordering things I would never make for myself at home, think: fettucini alfredo. You should be proud of yourself for keeping to your standards.
