Once-yearly naughtiness

Oh, the diet fell down and went boom yesterday--I treated myself to loads of shrimp scampi and angel hair pasta at my favorite Italian restaurant. Wow, I'm not used to eating like that anymore--I feel like my stomach is still working on getting it all digested! But it sure was gooooooood.  :)  So I've decided that I can have shrimp (which are basically little cholesterol bombs) once a year on my birthday. Which I did. I might add another occasion later, if I can think of something special enough.

But I think I'll be cooking my own shrimp & pasta at home next time. My version is much simpler and lighter...and, of course, comes in reasonably small portions for which I don't have to pay a small fortune.

Thank you for visiting us - we've been lonely. My mom is envious of that shrimp scampi; she still has to eat a soft, bland food diet ... yuck! Yes, her doctors told her how serious her c-diff was and really scared us, but she's getting better now, even though they say it might be weeks before she's right again.

Well, if you are going to go off your diet at least it was for something really scrumptious! Besides, I think it's okay to treat yourself sometimes.
