Friday night was "date night" for Steve & me.
I had gotten a $75 gift cert for a local casino and it was about to expire. We decided to use it for the chi-chi restaurant. I had looked the menu up online and knew that I could eat without many issues.
They had a "meal deal" for $35 that included an appetizer, meal & dessert.
All the appetizers had wheat. I told the waiter that I couldn't have wheat so he went to the chef to see if he could create something off menu for me.
Out came this amazing calamari dish. Oh I'd have a torrid affair with that chef!
I had the lamb. Steve had the chicken. Dessert was creme brullee with fresh berries. My dessert of lemon tart was boxed up to go for Steve to have later.
Creme brullee. Shit. Ohhhh... Who needs sex when you can have creme brullee??
Dinner out was just what Steve & I needed. We've not been connecting lately and this was nice to have an evening free of interruptions. Good conversation, good food & good wine all added up to a beautiful friday night.
This past weekend I was invited to my friend Nancy & Sally's birthday party. Another friend Susan rented this amazing house on Lake Tahoe for 10 of us to celebrate.
I went up Sat afternoon. Everyone else was there Friday.
The house was amazing! Three stories with decks on each story, a dock and a beautiful seating area right by the water.
Nancy & I both have the same food allergies. Everyone was aware of it so there were plenty of "legal" foods.
Except for the sugar. That's not legal in my world.
I've been soooo good not having sugar.
Stoopid Tommi & her stoopid wheat free Jack Daniels dark choc cake with dark choc sauce.
I know I know. "You could have turned it down."
Sun morning I had fake creamer in my coffee & then came home & ate the lemon full of sugar, cream & wheat tart.
I also just binged on Sunday. But binged on "legal" foods.
Sat on the couch with a bag of apple cinnamon rice cakes with a jar of peanut butter. Ate most of the peanut butter and all of the rice cakes.
Today: Back on the wagon!
May is Gluten Free month. I am now gluten free for the rest of the month!
Tonight is hoop class. I'll take my camera & take some pic's to post tomorrow.
