And I’m completely stuffed and sort of feel like a whale.
I really don’t say “i feel like a whale” often, but tonight I sort of do. Let’s recap: I was STARVING when I got to the restaurant and immediately devoured a slice of bread and a couple pieces of calamari + a bbq shrimp. I was with a crowd that looooves wine and so my glass was instantly filled…and drank. I then ate a cup of french onion soup with lots of gooey melted cheese in it. It was really good–I actually didn’t finish it and gave it to one of our friends to finish. He loved it as well. For dinner, I ordered the petit filet (8 ounces) “dry”–thanks for the recommendation!!!!! I feel a little better knowing I didn’t have my steak swimming in a pool of butter. I ate about 6 ounces of the steak. And then there were sides…..I tasted the creamed spinach (AMAZING), the broiled potato and about a tbsp of mashed potatoes. After dinner I was quite full. But then, the dessert menu came….we all know what that means! We ordered a few desserts for the table—I ordered the white chocolate banana pudding with carmelized banana on top. To die for! Seriously, the best dessert I’ve had in a while. I probably ate about 1/3 of it. Strap on two glasses of red wine and you have one seriously full girl. I will be better tomorrow…I promise! It was a major splurge night….but worth it!
Okay…off to put on some elastic waist pjs and call it a night!
