Special Dinner Tonight

Saturday, May 03, 2014

Tonight we are getting together with my daughter and going out to dinner at a fabulous restaurant at a the beach. This will be an advance, joint celebration to include her 29th birthday, my 57th and Mothers Day. My best friend (and also a surrogate grandma to both of my kids, so she is really family) is coming along and my daughter's girlfriend will be there too. I am going to eat well today with lots of veggies and water. We plan on getting there early and doing a lot of walking, so that is a positive.

First and foremost, my plan for today is NOT to BINGE. Whatever may calories are for the day is what they are as long as I do not go on a full blown binge, I'm happy. The calories will average out for the month anyway and this IS a celebration and I plan to enjoy myself. I will have to "eyeball and guestimate" my calories at dinner. I know I will have a martini, so that's say, 300 - 400 calories depending on how large they make them. DD is making a special cake for after dinner when we go back to her place for coffee. I'm going to say 400 for that, and eat a SMALL piece, VERY SLOWLY and enjoy it.

My entrée will be one of these:

Crispy Rockfish - Sweet Potato Gnocchi, Roasted Grape Tomatoes, Sunburst Squash, Meyer Lemon Sherry Cream, Fennel Arugula Salad, Garlic Basil Oil

Or emoticon

Spring Roll Stirfry - Silken Tofu & Wilted Scallion Spring Rolls, Sugar Snap Peas, Malibu Carrots, Sunburst Squash, Red Quinoa, Coconut Sweet Soy Reduction, Shaved Asparagus Smoked Almond Salad

Like I said, I'm going to have to guess, but I AM practicing "Choice Control" (Thank you Dee!). emoticon

    Eat everything you want but in moderation. Remember the first bite always tastes the best.

    Good food, great taste doesn't have to be high in calories. Enjoy your birthday my dear, partake a little in everything you want to and just know you are fabulous!
