I’m currently in a food coma. Send help. Now.
It’s the husband’s 30th Birthday today! As in Wednesday because obviously I’m writing this before you read this post.
I’ve decided that calories don’t count on your spouse’s birthday just like they don’t on yours because it only makes sense. They are like your other half right? Everyone is nodding right now in agreement because that means two days a year calories don’t count. Amen to that.
I’m in a food coma due to the fact we went out for dinner with the kids and of course we started with bread with balsamic because that’s what you do when you eat at an Italian restaurant right? I mean it’s all about the carbs. With that in mind I loaded up on a delicious Bruschetta Chicken Linguine which was fantastic. I have a love for bruschetta so why oh why do I not have any on this blog?! After that you could have rolled me out of the restaurant but, hey, it’s my hubs birthday which means free dessert. Who actually passes up a free dessert? Not me so we indulged in Dessert Nachos. Amazingness. What’s not to love about deep fried tortillas dusted with cinnamon that melt in your mouth. Then topped with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, Strawberries, Bananas and Chocolate Sauce. That’s right. Wipe the drool off your computer now.
Did I mention all my kids did was eat the strawberries and bananas off the dessert nachos? I’m not claiming them.
Then Miss K came home and ate two pieces of cake.
Maybe she is my kid….
