We're trying to figure out what to do for dinner tomorrow night --- Anniversary! :) I usually vote for the steak houses cuz I can get what I need without any trouble. I'm glad I don't have to worry about co-workers for my lunch choices. Actually lunch is almost always 4 slices of bacon as I'm getting ready to leave for work. :)
Sounds like you made a good choice with the salad and fixin's :)
We stopped at a restaurant once and I asked about cooking oils. Brad rolled his eyes. When the waitress walked away, he said "Jenn, look at this place. Does it look like it spends the money on real butter???" lol Yeah, he was right... cooking spray it is then, please. You can keep your "margarine substitute" for the next guy.
Brad says I'm a pain in the ass to go out to eat with b/c I can't just order off the menu... I have to change everything. I told him "I am paying them to make me dinner... I will pay for what I want and nothing else."
Boyfriend said the same kind of things when he was working at Bertucci's. I could only think, "uh...that's what they're PAYING you to do." I don't really get it.
Because of my allergy, Geek has gotten accustomed to me asking every new place what oil they use and adjusting my order from there. It wasn't that big a leap from "salad instead of french fries" to "no bun, salad instead of french fries." If I do get hit with cottonseed oil from a meal that shouldn't have had enough to make me react, I try a different menu item the next time. There are very few sit down places in the area I just can't eat at.
I've gotten comments from waitstaff, but mention an allergy and suddenly they're all over it, trying to make sure I don't die of anaphylactic (sp?) shock in the chairs. Granted that's not my reaction, but it's still the magic word.
Allergy is a magic word. ;)
Had beef fajitas. Ate too many chips with both salsa and white cheese sauce. Felt bloated and crappy. Then had dairy queen... so bloated my belly physically hurt. Couldn't even yawn without stabbing pains in my upper belly. One of these days I'll learn my lesson.
Went deer hunting this morning... actually, I sat in a tree stand for 4 hours. Didn't do much along the lines of "hunting". Started raining. Got wet. Now I'm cold and can't get warm. Thinking of making soup.
That's all I got. Oh, one more thing. GO HAWKS!
Oh, and Kindle owners... go to Amazon.com and search for "Going Paleo without Going Broke". It's free today and tomorrow only.
Wow, thx, jenn.. Just got it. I enjoyed my Kindle DX for yrs and now with the new iPad any book in Kindle downloads in my iPad, backlight is awesome. We went fishing last w/e, DH having good luck, I got bored and remembered I had my iPad in my bag, it got dark, no problem reading. Only thing better in Kindle DX, it read to me and I loved that.

Thanks, checking it out. I've got Kindle for PCs.
Went deer "hunting" again this afternoon. I find it hard to call it hunting when it's really "sitting and waiting for one to walk up" to be shot...
Anyhow, saw a doe. She walked right up to about 10 ft from my stand. But she looked small so I didn't shoot at her. If she's back tomorrow, I'll shoot her. Maybe she's bigger than she looks, or if not, we'll tag her with one of the depredation tags (nuisance tags). The farmer has like 3 sheets of 10 depredation tags! lol
Pork chops and mashed potatoes with butter and sour cream for dinner. Homemade chicken nuggets for lunch. No breakfast since I ate so much crap last night. Had a bit too much candy today... few mini kit kats, about 4 starbursts... This has to come to an end or I'm never going to reach my goals.
Raining again today... hunting cut short. Didn't see anything moving about except a possum. Hopefully the rain will move out so we can try again this evening.
Birthday party for my nephew at 1. *sigh* why do people ALWAYS schedule things for kids at the same time that they should be napping??? Drives me nuts. I'm sure Makenna will be a gem to be around at that time.
Got groceries late last night (left home at 9 pm) Menu for this week looks like this
Spaghetti (gluten free for everyone else, spaghetti squash for me)
hmmm... no wonder my grocery bill was small... it appears I'm missing 2 days of food. lol It'll work out though. One day my stepmom will have the kids b/c I'll be at school so they'll probably have hotdogs and tater tots and Saturday we're going to to the race track... I think it'll work out.
Anyhow... that's all I got... except GO COWBOYS! (I know all you Texans are rolling your eyes right now lol)
