My Perfect Dinner


I am not kidding when I tell you that, today, I stumbled upon the fact that I have gained (gasp!) ten pounds in the past two months.  I think it may have something to do with the fact that I have seconds when Chris cooks country fried steak, white rice and gravy for dinner.  And maybe it has something to do with the pecan pie and cannolis that I ate last week. 

Regardless of why, the fact of the matter is that this is just not ok.  And not because I am not ok with the weight, but really because I can't afford to buy new pants.  And I probably can't really afford to continue eating the massive amounts of food that I have been eating.

Tonight was a meal that made me SUPER happy though.  I love grilling weather.  Chris made steak, grilled squash, zucchini, onions and asparagus with a side salad drenched in my mother's recipe for red wine vinaigrette. 

And I did not have pie or any other bakery treat for dessert.

p.s. In case you didn't know, I have milk at dinner every night.  That's just the kind of girl that I am.

It's always grilling weather at our house, even with 6-8 inches of snow!

That looks delicious!!!! I am still plodding away at that diet. Soooo sick of it. But, I refuse to go back to my Walmart stretch pants. :)
