I realize that I have not blogged in…well... a few days.
So today, was a special day for Don and I. How so? Well, the temps were up a few degrees and Don was feeling better than he has in about 10 days, so we got out for lunch.
OK, truth? We’re celebrating the fact that I’ve lost 39.2 pounds!!
How do we celebrate? With a meal, of course!
Our choice for lunch was over in the San Tan Village in Gilbert… Brio. Italian. What a lovely restaurant! Lots of dining space. Not crowded or overly noisy… a very comfortable, almost cozy den of voices that didn’t drowned out our conversation.
There were several choices for me, which really thrilled me. My choice: Shrimp Mediterranean. I knew I could have asked them to omit the pilaf, but decided that I could eat around it and I did. (It’s not on my eating program presently.)
The complimentary appetizer was seasoned toasted flatbread wedges and a sourdough loaf with real butter on the side. That little tip missing on the flatbread ended up in my mouth and I promptly wished I hadn’t tasted it because it was all I could do to resist eating the whole thing, but I did. Must have been the result of… “Oh, Jesus, help me!!”
As you can tell, I have nothing but good things to say about our dining experience at Brio today.
From the restaurant we walked around a few blocks and back to Frost Gelato. Yep, Don had his eye on this place all along.
She put a little dollop of raspberry sorbet on top! This piccolo (small) portion – 90 calories.
What a delightfully blessed day we had.
