I can’t believe how many temptations there are around me lately, especially today! First off, Baskin Robbin’s is having its annual 31 cent scoop night, second, Milestones is also having a free date night special which offers pretty much buy one get one free and lastly, it’s my parent’s 32nd wedding anniversary. Great. I really need to concentrate on my diet plan and the best way to do this is to resist any eating out opportunities. But, family always comes first…so I ended up going out and pay for the bill as well. *sob*
Thank God, it’s not too bad of a line up. I got there at 4 pm to leave my name down on their waiting list and it was pouring dog poo that time. When I got back, it was already 7 and the line up was long. Glad that we were still able to get in and claim our “reserved” seats. So, I was very conscious of what I am going to order for dinner and luckily, I’m already on my South Beach Diet Phase 2, so more choices available for me. We ordered a Mediterranean Bruschetta Flatbread as a starter, which comes with tomatoes, feta cheese, arugula, basil and balsamic dressing. Yes, I can eat everything there, except maybe the flatbread because I still have to stay away from having too much carbs or at least white flour.
For my entree, I ordered this Angus Beef Top Sirloin with Chilean Crab and Tiger Shrimp in Lobster butter sauce. I’m so glad that I can indulge the sirloin steak in this diet plan as well as seafood. The only problem of this dish is probably the lobster butter sauce. Ah, that’s okay, only a small portion and for tonight. I substituted the garlic mashed potatoes with more vegetables and the dish also comes with a big plate of salad. And of course, I asked for a garden salad instead of Caesar salad…
I cleared pretty much everything on my plates and felt quite full. The good thing about this diet is that I don’t have to starve myself and still be able to lose weight! How wonderful is that?
