Fall down 7 times...

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."
I know.
I KNOW!
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.

Well right about now, I WILL take the sex!

apple cinnamon rice cakes and PB sounds pretty good. I've never tried that.

Tricia said...

I can't even keep peanut butter around, so I get it. Sounds like a fun date. :)

Emilia said...

It's hard to turn down anything that sounds that good! It's all about compromise and moderation. Keep at it!

Much love,

IT IS ALWAYS NICE TO GET RID OF ALL THAT BABY FAT...ONE GUY I KNEW JUST FRIED IT ALL UP IN A BIG PORK SANDWHICH!
----------------------------------
PART 1

THE U.S. CITIZENS HAVE THEIR BRAINS SCRAMBLED VIA FLUORIDE IN THE WATER & ALL THE ASPERTAME THEY CONSUME IN POP DRINKS, BUT THERE IS MORE.....

You see, Bush Sr., & Jr., Clinton, Regan, Carter, Obama, Ford...ALL these presidents are in what is dubbed a SECRET SOCIETY called The Moloch Axis Demoniacs (i coined the phrase myself...Dr. A.P. and i don't use my full name because WHO knows WHAT sinister crap they'd do to me IF they found out?) or M.A.D. for short.

These people, and there’s obviously more of them (Cheney, Rumsfeld etc.) than the ones mentioned, control KEY positions not just in government, business, society etc. They are GRADUALLY erroding MORAL/FAMILY VALUES in society. SO gradual that it's like hairloss! You see it ever so slowly and you have to be a keen eye to boot!

For example, women in the workforce...they go to work so WHO takes care of the kids? Some goofs getting minimum wage who could care less about those kids. Family split apart because NOW both parents work and the cost of life itself purposely increased to perpetuate this separation. Kids grow up with NO moral/family values. Repeat this a few generations and before you know it, you have mindless zombies that don't know RIGHT from WRONG! Easily programmable to get in debt, be anti-christ-like etc.

Also, the coming mark of the beast 666. Remember HOW it all used to be ca$h only? Then they introduced checks, then credit cards to get yourself in serious financial troubles, then ATM cards, and now that STUPID SWIPE-PASS card. What is the purpose of all this? To get people broken down enough and stupid enough through putting FLUORIDE in the drinking water and ASPERTAME in soda drinks/pop cans so we ALL can accept the 666 chip. So NOBODY can buy or sell or own ANYTHING lest he has the mark of the beast (anti-christ) which is 666.

I can go on for days & days as to the subtleties and more examples but i think you all SEE the points i make here. It's all SUBTLE and GRADUAL negative changes day in & day out that these M.A.D. demons (because they are demonic and have placed their trust in demons in exchange for their souls and material possessions here on earth) are passing into laws in Canada, USA, UK, SPAIN, FRANCE etc.

Love your blog! I can't eat wheat either, and I know how hard that can be. Sadly, I am gaining weight, after my 55th bday it just snuck up and planted itself on my waist! I'm not sure how I'm going to get rid of it...

" The site also offers items for sale, including apparel and bags emblazoned with a drawing of a mustachioed cat; I could not find any statistics about how much merchandise the website sells, but the items for sale actually looked pretty good. For example, we often do some driving trains to encourage the students to speak a few numbers in turn. Many people prefer the link baiting to increasing the profit in the online marketing field.

The new tablet would be a further extension of these concepts and yet another step into the future
of computing for Apple. The effects of what they see,
read and hear are having a devastating affect on our society today.
I want to mention a part of the Prime Law (Twelve Visions Party)
which is part of Neothink.

Sometimes funny pictures are created automatically,
and now need a little time to our own. It is hard to imagine how athletes can
do such entertaining and funny facial expressions, but
apparently the desire to win is more important than image.

So, to overcome this situation and to remain in a positive mood laughter therapy is the best solution which can be done by various ways by watching funny movies, by downlaoding some funny pictures or by doing chit chatting of funny text with your dear freinds.
