A Nice Dinner Out

We had a wonderful Confirmation ceremony this afternoon and we invited our family members to dinner at a local restaurant. Unfortunately, they messed up our reservations and did not give us the private room that we originally reserved. Oh well. It was a busy night in the restaurant and our food took a while to come, but otherwise it was a fine evening. I tried to keep my "plan" on my mind and although I didn't try to figure out Points for what I ate, I did keep my portions to a minimum. For appetizers, I had half a mozzarella stick (little daughter's) and spoonful of baked spinach and crab dip with pita triangle. I skipped the clams casino and fried calamari that was also ordered...





I had some salad with my own light ranch dressing that I brought (Kraft has packets -I'll show them next time). Actually, this is what was left of my salad. I didn't feel like eating much of it tonight...




For dinner, I ordered the baked salmon with veggies and baked potato. I ate half the salmon, almost all the veggies and most of the inside of the potato...


I forgot to order the salmon without the sauce which was a dill beurre blanc. I just scraped it off the best I could. My biggest feat of the night - NO BREAD! I did it! Believe me, it was hard. I was starving, the food was taking forever to come out and the warm rolls were stuck right in front of me (I eventually moved them!)
I did have a glass of wine, lots of water and a cup of decaf coffee that tasted way better than coffee that I make! We were all too tired and full, so no one went for dessert either. Whew - I got away with that, too!


I did peek at the dessert menu, though. Drool..........
