Date Night & Olive Garden
Wednesday, July 29, 2009
well me and hubby went out tonight for the first time in a while. Ah no kids, just us.
We went to the movies to see harry potter. I have to say I really liked this one, I was a little dispointed, I cant help it, the movies just dont compare with the books at all...... It was one of the better of the movie series though.
Me and Andrew got a small popcorn and I only had about 1/2 a cup. Andrew loves movie theater popcorn and its something he dosent get to often so I was proud that he only got a small bag.
After the movie we were starving because we knew we wanted to go out to eat afterwards so we only ate a cup of cereal and 1/2 cup of milk for breakfast and a salad for lunch. I wanted to save as many points as I could.
I planned what we were going to get before we left, calculated all the points so we wouldent do bad. We were so prepared. We went to Olive Garden and got the new chicken crostini meal that they have been advertising all over TV. We got one plate and split it, Slit the salad which was plain with light ranch on the side and had 2 bread sticks a peice. Then we got desert which was fresh berries with itaillan custard on top (only 5 points)..... we split that too.
It was awesome.... a little points heavy still compared to what we normaly have for dinner, like 20 points with desert..... but managable. We only spent 25 dollars on dinner as well.... something that would have cost $50.00 if we had of both got our own plates.
Oh and to put things into perpective, Im stuffed.... I totaly could have done without desert .... the entree was pretty huge even split in half... more than we normaly eat for dinner.
Why dident we do this all along.... why dont all people split meals when they go to sit down places...... its has so many great benifits!!!
