Good Morning Chicks!
Oh, it was a good day yesterday! I anxiously awaited one of my best friends and her family to come to our home on the first day of thier vacation.
So, I cleaned and planned and shopped! They were to arrive at 4 pm(ish) - and I was in the grocery store, finishing up at about 3:30. Drove home and told DH that I needed to just jump in the shower. Then of course, as I was drying off, I heard Annie (my beagle baby) barking and I knew my friends had arrived -- NOT FASHIONABLY LATE! LOL!!
So, my confession - Breakfast: 1 c skim, 1/2 c eggbeaters, 2 Tbs. natural peanutbutter, and some splenda
Lunch: Too busy
Dinner and Appetizers and Dessert: Uh Oh
Sushi appetizer, I ate 2 pieces
Ceveche appetizer, which is basically raw fish "cooked" via lime juice with onion, garlic, and red pepper slices.
I brought out blue corn chips (and didn't touch them) and made fresh guacamole. I succumbed to the temptation later, but overall, I didn't eat too much of that, just a few or several. I didn't count.
Then I made everyone margaritas, but I actually had 2 cosmos
I did nurse them for a long time, but still...
It starts to get tougher from here on out
So, we moved out onto our deck, since the weather was nicer and cracked open a bottle of Merlot and started the grill.
Dinner was 1/2 of a steak, part of a baked sweet potato, plain and a veggie salad with my homemade Balsamic and EVOO dressing
Bread was on the table, and I bought some REALLY nice bread, but didn't touch it. (welllllll, until I was cleaning up - but I took the SMALLEST end piece with some goat cheese spread) That was really unneccessary!
My girlfriend and I polished off the wine by ourselves throughout dinner and in a while, I served dessert.
I presented them a feast, and it was a lot of fun.
Ok, so here I go
made mint tea, no sugar, LOL, 2 kinds of cookies, lemon and Italian Amaretti, followed up with 4 pints
of different ice cream...ready? ROFL
1. Hagen Daz full fat : Rum Raisin (almost better than an orgasm)
2. Stoneyfield Farm Frozen Yogurt: Cookies and Cream
3. Soy Delicious Purely Decadent non-dairy frozen dessert: Peanut Butter ZigZag. really yummy for soy, holy cow!
and drumroll, please,
pint # 4 was a Godiva, dark chocolate (to die and go to heaven, OMG! When "Harry Met Sally" scene, ice cream -- incredible!
So, NO I didn't eat all of them, but small amounts of 2 out of 4 and a bit of 1 of the other.
For a nightcap, I served a nip of something called Limoncello, which is basically Vodka and Lemon fused together and sweetened. DH said it tasted like Lemon Pledge, but he doesn't like liquors. I love Grand Marnier, although, I don't drink it, or I should say, I haven't had it in many years.
Our friends left around 10 and I
went to bed soon after. What a night! It was conversation, food, and a newly made memory.
Back on the beach, BABY!!! "like a whale" haha, but It's All Good!
NO GUILT! It's a brand new day!
Have a great weekend everyone!
