Easter Feast

It was delicious!

My husband is a FANTASTIC cook, a grill master really. Each week he grills me chicken breasts to eat all week. He will cook me whatever I want but his boneless, skinless, grilled chicken breasts are to die for! I never get sick of it. When I want a break, I make a taco salad. I make killer salads.

So what was our Easter feast? Well, it included some traditional foods, and some just plain good stuff. We had: stuffed jalapenos with bacon (cooked on the smoker), smoked honey ham, filet mignon, green beans, homemade mashed potatoes (I peeled, cut, cooked and whipped myself), garlic ciabatta rolls and super delicious fatty cookies (170 calories each).

I ate some of everything. It was all super good. I was not pukey full, however I was full enough that when I walked the dogs afterward I got a cramp in my side. We have big spreads like that because my best bud is a vegetarian but her husband loves meat. We try to give them the best of both worlds. They own a restaurant/bar so we can get whatever we want there. We like to give them choices here. The babies loved it too. Man they can eat. They really loved the ham.

So I indulged. The good news is I did not eat while I prepared food. I ate limited calories until dinner. Yesterday I was pretty perfect calorie wise. As long as I get back on it tomorrow I think I will be fine and have no remorse.

That is until I have to workout tomorrow night. I might feel some of the pain then. Or perhaps when I try to run in the morning. That is actually only a few hours away. Lucky me!

Hope you had a good weekend and have a great week!

Great to read about your non-scale accomplishments such as not snacking while preparing the food!! Well done. The basket of chocolates and jelly beans at my in-laws house was a doozie for me! But I got a run in on Sunday :-)
