Afterward, we’ll have dinner at Applebee’s. They have the nicest selection of weight watcher’s entrees. My favorite so far is the grilled tilapia with mango salsa, sooo flavorful and just the right balance between sweetness, tanginess and spice. I really want to find a recipe for that salsa…Even bought a mango at the grocery last night. After seeing some of the new offerings listed at their site just now, I might have to try something different. I’ve only had 780 of my 1600 calories for the day, so I can pretty much have anything on that menu and be good to go. After dinner, I bet I can persuade my sweety to get coffee and a scone over at Caribou. Date night!
Tomorrow we’re having a bunch of friends over for a Superbowl get-together. I am not a sports watcher, definitely not a fanatic. But I like this group of people a lot and am looking forward to the camaraderie. It’s our planned weekly treat day, but we’re planning ahead how many calories to keep our treat to (600 over normal calories), and that involves roughly estimating what all we’ll enjoy as extras. I’m making shredded chicken sandwiches and Howie’s making his insanely spicy chicken wings. We’ll also have Tostito’s and salsa, and I plan to also serve some boiled red potatoes with parsley and garlic. Starch city! Low-carbers beware!
