Sunday was the last day of our ‘diet cycle’ and DH and I can now go back to eating foods from the ‘white food group’ once again. We were out running errands in town again so we decided to have lunch at Shlomo & Vito’s, they have great salads and we figured that we’d ease back into food.
DH had the chopped Italian and I had the Fielder’s choice, a scoop of three salads of your choice, I picked the chicken, tuna and egg salad. As our plates were being cleared the ever looming question came up, “did you save room for dessert?” Their pies and cakes are ginormous. The table next to us ordered a piece of Red Velvet cake and New York style cheesecake, WOW! Just at that moment, the table behind me received a slice of lemon meringue pie, my husband’s fav. You should have seen his face; he looked just like a little boy, if only for a second and then shook himself and said, “No thanks”. I was proud of him taking a pass on something that he could have eaten but didn’t. We went window shopping in the chic mall across the street, La Encantada, to walk off what little calories we had from our salads and found, Frost, YUM!
THE best gelato and sorberts. We each had a small scoop, well maybe his was a little bigger. My poison was Coconut and husband had the Mint Chocolate Chip.
That was a very nice Sunday afternoon.
