As I prepare to write my What I Ate Wednesday post, I realize that it’s going to look as though I’ve fallen off track. To be honest, it sort of felt that way. But I’m telling myself that it’s just one day and I will be on the (very) straight and narrow until next Saturday (after weigh in at WW) when I’ll be celebrating my birthday. Besides, I HAVE to be good…I only have 7 Weekly Points left!!!
So welcome to the Happy Anniversary edition of WIAW sponsored as always by the lovely Jenn at Peas & Crayons! I guess I have to hope that our theme is still Fall into Good Habits…
Ralph and I decided that we would go out to lunch for our anniversary. What could be better than a restaurant where we had gift cards to use?! So we were off to Olive Garden. A bit hokey, perhaps and not always my favorite food, but…the dessert always makes up for it!
We probably shouldn’t have but we started with bruschetta which is one of my favorite things. In fact, I think the next time I go, I’m ordering this and salad and that will be it! The world’s largest piece of basil!!
The plate after we had already torn into it!
My first of several returns to the Bruschetta Altar…yum…
Next was the salad which as always was very tasty. It still bothers me to pay for salad in restaurants because I know how inexpensively it can be made at home. I enjoyed it regardless!
Portobello mushroom ravioli. They were a little dry but still tasted pretty good.
Now for the real reason I go to Olive Garden…
The lemon creme cake!!!!! I really can’t use enough exclamation points here! This is so delicious and makes me smile every time I eat it. Their coffee is good to and it was a nice finish to a nice meal.
So you may ask, how this fits in to Falling into Good Habits? It fits in because I will as I said at the beginning, be very VERY good for the rest of the week. My plan worked last week and I intend to stick with it. I haven’t mentioned that I have been either walking or riding my stationary bike every day. That really does help. Rainy today so it was the bike for me! I believe That counts as a good habit!
So that’s WIAW for Anniversary Day and the beginning of Birthday Month! Be sure to stop over at Peas & Crayons…look around and leave some comments. We all love them!
Happy October! Happy WIAW!!
