Yesterday was DH's birthday and we had a lovely day at home, sitting outside on the deck overlooking the bay until the wind picked up.
In the evening we went out to dinner at our favorite steakhouse. I have been craving a good steak - a girl needs her iron now and then, right? I found a pair of slacks and a top from over 5 years ago in the back of the closet and they fit, actually they were a little loose...
Dinner was fabulous! I resisted the chips and ham pate they brought out, left the breadbasket to DH and gave him all but 1 of my potato wedges.
Grilled tenderloin steak with a red wine, sundried tomato sauce, chard with garlic and dusted with parmesan cheese and roasted herb potato wedges. The steak was sooo good!! Sonoran beef is great.
After dinner they bring out a complementary drink - cream, ice and kaluha (maybe vodka as well?) blended together. They call it a Speedy Gonzales but it's most like a White Russian. Dusted with cinnamon - yum. I splurged and had half of DH's as well.
It was lovely to be out and have special time together. The proof was going to be in the numbers this morning, I felt fairly confident as steak is normally doesn't cause too much damage... no gain! I was exactly the same this morning... holding steady at 138 even. Still that's up half a pound from earlier this week... the fish lunch made me gain and due to stress, PMS etc I haven't been able to shift it yet.
Here's to next week!!
