When you surprise yourself

Thursday, June 27, 2013

Today we went to celebrate my biological brother's birthday. We went to Dave & Busters - it was sooo much fun! Well, I tried to look at the nutrition menu for Dave & Busters before we went but I could not find one ANYWHERE. I was really disappointed, but I decided that I would make the best of it. We got to Dave & Busters - they have a $20 Eat-Play-Win deal and that was the best option for us (considering finances and all). I wanted a burger without having a burger, and they have a double cheeseburger on the Eat-Play-Win menu. I thought, this sounds amazing especially when they can substitute a veggie patty for the beef. Well, that was a no-go. They can't change it in the computer system for billing (or even just charge us an extra dollar). My next thought was about the grilled chicken salad... but I have been eating salads everyday for the past almost week. I wanted something different... something I haven't eaten everyday and something I couldn't easily have made at home myself. I decided on a shrimp/chicken meal that had a side of broccoli and mashed potatoes. The sauce was really heavy (but, it had spinach in it - look at me justifying everything) and I'm sure LOADED with points. But, in retrospect - I think I made a semi good decision for what was available to me and even if it wasn't the best, one bad decision isn't going to kill me (I don't think, lol).

    the few times I've been to D&B's, I've enjoyed it. It's just a long way for us to go. And (who am I kidding) - we don't go anywhere! My trips to D&Bs have been with work groups!

    hmmmm - I love, love, love spinach emoticon

    You put forth the effort and was well aware of the possibilities for gaining too many calories. That's be commended! emoticon
