Easter Dinner with extended family- mine field!

Sunday, April 04, 2010

My sister and brother in-law are gourmet cooks, and they love to entertain. They are the glue that holds the families together. Perfect hosts, perfect house, perfect food. I was concerned about dinner:

smoked pork ribs / 6 difference barbecue sauces
cornbread honey butter
fingerling roast potatoes
zucchini parmesan salad
cherry tomato / mozzerella cheese salad
giant perfect strawberries
wine / beer
chocolate sponge cake rolled filled with mousse

I plan on 3-4 oz of pork, no sauce, focused on the salads, couple of bites of cornbread.

But that CAKE! Oh my-- I split a piece with my husband.

I would call the dinner a success for m.e, although my downfall was the cake and I am over my calorie intake for today. But--the old Chops would have easily eaten double.

    You did great. You did stop yourself and not eat the double. Keep up the great work.

    You did great and used a lot more self control than I would have had in a similar situation. As it was, I cooked a turkey with mashed potatoes and gravy. No extras. But a treat of some gingerbread for dessert.

    Great job at having made progress in your habits! I also felt I approached today with a level of sanity, so I am proud of myself, and I extend that to you: I am proud of you! Great job!
