|Birthday party, 2010. 200+ lbs.|
This year it will be tomorrow. We all get to request certain food items for the party. Being the little health nut that I am ;) I requested grilled chicken breast and salad. The boys' requests were more of a pastry nature and involve chocolate. We will not discuss that.
But along the lines of "How in the world am I going to avoid all the cake and cookies that will be available to me tomorrow night?" I would like to focus on some fun facts.
- Last Saturday I attended a birthday party where cupcakes, buttermilk pie and apple cobbler were all served. Oh and fruit was served. You know what I ate? Fruit.
- This past Wednesday we served pizza, cheese dip with chips and various hand-held desserts to our students. You know what I ate? Mashed cauliflower. Before I left home.
Oh, and there's also tonight. We are going out with my brother and his wife for a pre-party celebration, minus the kidlets. There has been talk of going to this amazing low-country influenced bistro for quite a while now and tonight is the night it is finally going to happen. I couldn't be the one to say this menu is just not going to work for me. But I'm wondering...is this menu going to work for me? I have about 700 calories to work with. Check it out:
Amazing, right!? What should I order? Please help me!!!
And then I will get to indulge in my birthday "treat" of COFFEE! (What the heck? Sounds so ridiculous to say that, but this seems to be life as I know it these days.) This is the coffee menu! I LOVE any place that has a coffee menu. Pure love, I tell you.
I'm thinking the 3 cup French press to share with my loved ones and a latte for just moi. They create beautiful foam art on the lattes. Can't wait!
Okay, seriously help a girl out and tell me what you think I should order for dinner!!!!!
