So last night we took our kids to Friendly’s to dinner for the first time in years. I was feeling chilly, so I opted to get a soup and salad combo. I didn’t check over their menu beforehand or give any thought to what I would do for dessert. Usually I would obsess about these […]

We went to my sister-in-law’s house for dinner a couple of nights ago to hang out and exchange gifts between the kids. Chanukah had already ended, but this night happened to be the best night to get together. I had just got back from the therapist a few hours prior and had a bunch of […]

How can I better frame/label a dessert buffet, whether it is at a gathering at someone’s house or at a function, so that it is not such a big anxiety-ridden deal, that I don’t look at dessert as “forbidden fruit”? What if at future occasions where there is going to be dessert buffets, before I even get there, gave myself permission to […]

My husband asked me the other day why I always eat salad as my entrée whenever we go out to dinner.  The answer was a no-brainer for me – I get to stuff my mouth repeatedly with food, which fulfills my desire to feed my face, yet I get the most bang for the buck – I […]

So to follow-up on my blog from a couple of weeks ago about my concern over how I was going to deal with eating the popcorn at the comedy club, here is what happened…  I brought along my little plastic cup and was armed with the knowledge of the amount of calories per plastic cup.  I knew […]

Eating Popcorn at a Comedy Club

Such as this sickness does to me, I’m already thinking about how I’m going to handle eating out at a comedy club a couple of weeks away.  The last time we went there, they had baskets of  popcorn on each of the tables with endless refills from the waitress.  So for me, it was either […]
