Gluttony, Pure Gluttony

Sorry I haven't been around and posting this past week. We went back to Utah to visit family and friends. I hadn't been back in 7 months and my husband hadn't been back in 22 months. Needless to say, there were a lot of things we wanted to see and do while we were there. Of course, that included a few restaurants that we just had to go to. It was gluttony!

I was good at Bajio's grill. I had the chicken green chile salad. So dang good! But when we went to Tucano's Brazilian grill there was no being good. Sure, I stopped eating before I wanted to. Maybe that's why I wasn't in pain like my husband and dad were. But it was definitely a much bigger meal than I've eaten in forever. Then there was Las Tarascas (sp?). It has authentic tacos al pastor that my husband loves. They remind him of his mission in Mexico. And our last stop was Pudding on the Rice. We ended up brining that home to Colorado in a cooler, so I have it sitting in my refrigerator right now. Oh...and this was over the course of a few days. All that food in one day would kill anyone. LOL! On a better eating note...our first night there we had a party at my grandparents house with some of my cousins and their cute little kiddos. My grandma made her homemade veggie soup. It's my favorite soup in the whole wide world! So that night I ate really healthy. :)

I think this week we'll be eating a lot of stir-fry chicken and veggies in Yoshida sauce with brown rice. We both need to get back on track.

And someone please give me the will power to toss most of the girls' Halloween candy. We didn't even go to that many houses and they have a ginormous bowl full. Gah!
