It’s been a nice Sunday… lot of laying around, reading, and working on the holistic website.

 

I had a sweet snack around 2PM.

I started with 1/2 a Cadbury’s Caramel Egg and a glass of milk, but I ate the other half about an hour later.

 

And a plum and melon.

The Husband and I met up with my aunt, uncle, dad, and grandpa at Maggiano’s, an Italian restaurant.

 

My aunt ordered fried zucchini for us all to share.  I had 1 and 1/2 piece.

And I ordered the Lobster Ravioli.  The Husband ordered Chicken Marsala, and we split our portions.

I also ate 1 other ravioli.  It was DELISH — big chunks of seafood.

 

My dad ordered creme brulee… since it was the size of my HEAD, I decided to help him out with his dessert.

I ate about 5 bites plus the strawberries.

 

Dinner with the family was fun and relaxing…. I love Italian food; I don’t eat Italian nearly enough!

 

Time to gear up for another week.  Goodnight!

    I love Maggiano’s! The original one is here in Chicago, and I’ll never forget how FULL we were when we went the first time!

    Everything looks so good, I love you and your husband split the portions, my boyfriend and I have such different tastes it’d be hard for us to do.

    I can’t believe that you are able to eat only half a Cadbury egg! What self-restraint! You’re my hero, seriously.

    Maggiano’s always makes me nostalgic – it was the first place my bf and I went on a date!

    dinner looks yummy! I was going to comment on how impossible it would be for me to eat 1/2 a Cadbury egg!

    We had similar lunches! Burgers taste so good with just slices of toast, no bun needed!

    I don’t eat Italian nearly enough either :) it’s so good!

    I don’t think I could ever eat just half of a cadbury creme egg!

    I’m always comparing the size of things to my head, and my BF always comments that I am ridiculous for doing so. So, it really made my day when you mentioned that the creme brulee was bigger than your head!

    I love love Italian! Maggianos is so good because their portions are so big and you can share one plate which is much cheaper :)
