YUM! This evening the older three girls had pizza and game night at church, so hubby and I decided to take the younger two out for dinner. We decided to go to a sit-down Mexican restaurant. I really enjoyed the chimichangas, especially since I couldn't eat them when I was having gall bladder issues. I still have some complications since having my gall bladder removed, but those are getting less frequent. After my A1c result last week (6.4 up from 6.2), I half-jokingly swore off carbs. After getting a concerned look from my husband, I promised that I would be smart about my eating. Realizing that there are times I really want foods that are higher carbs than what would be ideal for me, I decided to have one day per week that I could eat something a little carb heavy. Mind you I'm not going to go hog wild and eat a thousand carbs in one meal, but I'd like to have an occasional treat that doesn't make me feel guilty. So tonight's dinner consisted of some chips & salsa and shrimp chimichangas followed by an order of fried ice cream shared between the four of us.
We had a lot of fun going out to dinner with our two youngest who were very well behaved. Our older three, two of which were reluctant to go for the game night, got home almost 1/2 hr after the event was scheduled to end. All three were laughing and smiling when they got home (howling at the moon as they came up the walk, goofy girls!), so I think they had even more fun.
