French Fries Ugh!

Saturday, October 13, 2018

I admit that French Fries is my weakness. I love them! When we go out to a restaurant, I don't order them because I'll eat all of them!. The one we go to a lot that is close to home, has good options. You can choose Potato (baked, French fries, Buffalo chips, cold slaw or fresh fruit bowl. I opt for the fresh fruit. My husband will choose the same thing, so I can't even sneak a few of his that he doesn't eat anyway. He can't eat all the fries they serve! It has to be a sin to throw them out, right?

Yesterday, we were in Zootown and we ate at Cracker Barrel. I ordered the Lemmon Pepper Trout (one piece) and for the sides, steamed broccoli. and fresh fruit cup. My spurge is their biscuits and I ate only one. 360 calories including the biscuit. Good choices. Its one of their lowest calorie meals. When I got my plate, there was French fries instead of the fruit cup! Ugh! First thing, I said was I ordered a fruit cup, not the fries. So they brought the fruit cup, but left the fries. Ugh! I managed to stop at eating half of them.

Mistakes happen and it sure tasted good!

    My hubby loves potatoes in any form. I don't care for them. My weight comes from red meat, which is why I have heart disease. We all have our vices 😁

    Only eating half the fries is a victory. Since you had some, maybe that will satisfy your "French fry tooth" for a while. I'll bet since then you have been back to your healthy eating plan. Remember, only positive self talk.
    Have a blessed day.

    I like French fries, but have learned I can't eat greasy ones. I can only eat a few of the fries, so my husband gets them and I take a few.

    French fries are hard for me to resist. Overall, you did very well. Darn those crunchy golden potato sticks.

    It looks like it was meant to be. (smiling) Glad you at least enjoyed them.

    You did well, Bea! Sounds like you were having a nice time; those fries are not going to hurt but maybe next time you'll have to insist she takes them away! LOL
    It is hard!
