Mmm…Restaurants! :)

28 Jul

Yesterday and today have been “restaurant days”; in two days I have eaten in 3 restaurants and visited 2 coffee shops! Every single bite was delicious and worth it but not all that healthy…shocker! lol

Let’s see, yesterday, I ate at Red Lobster, yum! It was Shrimp Lovers Tuesday and I am sooooo a shrimp lover. 😛 I picked three dishes, I don’t know why I did that…you can pick just two but I chose three. shrug. Even before I was trying to lose weight and just ate whatever I always ordered the three and couldn’t finish so this time I really couldn’t finish! I got the Shrimp Linguine Alfredo; it’s my absolute fave dish at RL. Sadly though a half serving is 14 points…yup, you read that right, 14 points! When you get it as part of the trio the quantity is less then a half portion but I am not sure how much less so I am not exactly sure how many points it was. Don’t forget the other two items though…the Fried Shrimp and the Garlic Shrimp. The Garlic Shrimp were perfect; the Fried Shrimp were alright. Oh, it also came with a baked potato that I of course got sour cream for, a garden salad with ranch dressing on the side (it would have been light dressing but they don’t have light dressing there) and the cheese buns. Everyone who goes to RL knows the best part is those free dinner buns they give you at the beginning, they are to die for! They are so warm and delicious, they tear apart easily, are soft inside and a bit crunchy outside, there is cheese baked in to them…mouth heaven right there!

So after eating enough food to fill a lady pregnant with twins I went to a movie where I did not eat or drink anything cause really, where would it fit? lol. After the movie though N and I wanted to keep hanging out so we went to Tim Horton’s and were there just in time to get tea before they closed…I figure tea aids in digestion though so that’s ok. lol

Today was lunch at Joey’s with J; it is tradition, we go there everytime I visit. I fluctuate on what I get there so you’d think I’d order something kinda healthy, ha! I got the Sliders which are 3 baby burgers and a side order of yam fries which I am proud to say I didn’t eat all of. 🙂 As soon as the order was taken and the waiter gone a table near us that had 4 women got served and they all ordered huge salads and I immediately felt guilty and was tempted to call the waiter back to change my order but the waiter was nowhere to be found and I would have felt like a fool doing that anyways so shrug, it didn’t happen.

Dinner was at the Cheesecake Cafe with MJ and K; that is also becoming a tradition when I visit. 🙂 I was still full from lunch so I got soup, safe right? Nope! I got the broccoli and cheese soup in a bread bowl, a frickin bread bowl! Just stick a needle in my arm full of carbs and let it go! *rolls eyes* It was yummy though and not such a huge serving I felt like I over indulged…and I only ate a small part of the bowl…Then over to Starbucks where I got a tea. I am glad I like tea so much, no calories, tasty, helps the tummy – all kinds of good reasons to drink the stuff!

So those were my two days of restaurants and coffee shops; not good by any means but I s’pose they could’ve been a lot worse! …right?

On a good note I got a response finally from Peter’s Drive In, remember I mentioned I emailed them ages ago looking for nutritional information for the milkshakes there? Well…they sent it! Along with the nutritional information for the entire menu. Sweeeet! It is too late tonight to do anything about it but I will finally be able to figure out the points for that milkshake and see just how bad it was!

    Hi shrinkingwmn,

    I enjoyed reading through some of your articles. Best of luck with it all! I was hoping you wouldn’t mind passing along the nutrition information you received from Peter’s Drive-in.

      Hi Geoff, So sorry I didn’t respond sooner, I’ve been majorly slacking on my blogging so hadn’t looked at my comments for ages. I will dig through my emails and see if I still have the nutritional info, as I rarely delete my emails I’m sure it’s still there somewhere lol.

      woohoo! score a point for pack rats everywhere, I still had the email! do you have an email I can send the doc too? or is there a specific food you want info about? it’s a huge doc and I don’t really want to spend time writing it all out…

    Alrighty, I made a page and oh-so-originally named it Peter’s Drive In Nutritional Information (catchy dontcha think? lol) There is a link there that will open to an adobe document that has the nutritional info. You’ll find the page under Random Helpful Info. Enjoy, and happy milkshakes! 🙂
