Paul asked where we went for pizza last night…..
I knew I was in the right place as soon as I smelled the pizza baking, and got a load of the interior…..or – forget the interior, I was looking DOWN ---my eyes were on the floor!
I NEED MY MAGIC MARKERS!! :cD
The Eleventh Commandment! I must obey! :c)
And it was good, all the way to the crust! I love when the crust is good enough that you have to eat that part too…if the crust is left over sitting on the plate inedible, we call it “Pizza Bones” at our house ---
Chicago style deep dish with spinach….MMMMM!
Thinner crusted “special” with sausage, mushrooms, peppers and onions --- Whoooo boy!
There were 8 of us at the table, and there were leftovers – this was a LOT of food, but it was so good!
And it’s a good thing that I’ve been getting out for a 3.5 mile walk-jog every morning since I got here – it’s the only way to keep the poundage at bay. :c/
I do love good food. Lynda asked me the other day at Culvers how I manage not to weigh 300lbs with all the good food that I come across every day. BURN CALORIES! That’s the best way --- get the metabolism working and burning. And also ---you don’t have to eat the whole thing in one sitting. Often times I’ll only eat half, and save the other part for the next day’s lunch if I can…..or……just walk away from it. Just because it is in front of you doesn’t mean you need to devour the whole thing. Eat half.
It’s hard throwing away 1/2 of a dish of ice cream! But basically, it’s all calories in, and calories burned.
I love food too much to completely ban things from my diet. But one dessert with 4 or 5 spoons is a great way for everyone to get a taste without feeling like you gorged yourself on the whole thing.
And I figure there will be time to be skin and bones when they put me 6 foot under. At that point….I won’t be able to say “Man, I wish I had enjoyed that piece of chocolate cake!”
