So, I guess there comes a time, when after a while of changing your eating habits, that you fall off the wagon.
I'm proud to day that it wasn't yesterday.
I got up had a few cups of coffee w/ fat free 1/2 & 1/2 and an egg scramble loaded with turkey sausage, ham, green peppers, red onions and smoked gouda. (It was with two eggs...and I ate half and expected to save the other half for breakfast today...well that didn't happen.
After a 2.1 mile run with a mile walk interspersed in throughout I snacked on an apple w/peanut butter and downed a nalgene of water.
I had the second half of breakfast with another cup of coffee with more 1/2 and 1/2....as I watched some Wallace and Gromit.
Then I headed across the street for a Thanksgiving dinner that couldn't be beat. And let me just say...it didn't feel like home away from home. It felt like home. Which is a really cool feeling. It was like I was meant to be there. I'm super thankful for the space I had at their family table, the feast they shared and the warm welcome.
I had some snacks of whole wheat crackers and celery sticks with cream cheese olive dip and some olives & pickles.
Alongside a glass of white wine I enjoyed some turkey, brussels sprouts, green bean casserole and a small scoop of stuffing with cranberries. After a brief respite and some joke telling, I had a sliver of apple pie with freshly whipped cream and a sliver of key lime cheese cake :) yum...with a side of coffee....
And then: to the movies! The Muppets was excellent! (I shied away from snacks there...because I was still super full from dinner. I did have some sugar free candies to stifle the still lingering cough.
When I got home I popped in Chicken Run and had some sleepy time tea before passing out happy and full. :)
Today started off really well...oatmeal made with skim milk a sprinkle of splenda and a 1/2 cup of fresh blueberries. It was breakfast, and if you haven't figured it out by now, there was coffee with fat free 1/2 & 1/2.
I then just snacked my way through the day. A south beach protein cereal bar, a cheese stick...another cup of coffee and ran some errands. Later there was a snack of cheese and crackers and some diet ginger ale.
And then came dinner....
At the French Quarter Bistro they have many tasty beers on tap.
We started with a Three Philosophers Quadrupel :)
It helped keep the palate cool alongside the firecracker shrimp pictured below.
When dinner came, we paired it with some sort of Noel brew....it was an 11% one...I should have written the name down, but I was completely distracted by my dinner.
Blackened salmon, topped with craw fish tales in a bourbon sauce, over tasty green beans. It was all on top of, get this, deep fried cornbread! Holy yummyness.
I saw it on the menu and thought...oh good gravy, that's a double no...a corn product....deep fried.
But it was so good! Well worth the splurge. I mean if you're fall off the wagon...you might as well do it with a cannon ball...or a swan dive...I mean really go for it!
If you're every around for a visit...let me know, this is a great place for a bite to eat.
I'm just sipping some more sugar-free ginger ale before I go into sweet dreamland about this scrumptious dinner.
Until tomorrow . . .
