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.
