Worth Every Calorie?

Last night I went to the wedding of two of my co-workers. It was beautiful. But I'm not here to talk about their wedding. I'm here to discuss the deliciousness of the food at their wedding.

The first course was a mushroom and lobster bisque with truffle. Most of you are well aware of my epic battle against mushrooms. However, the bisque was amayonaising and YES! I ate every drop!

The second course was a field greens salad with spinach and other leafy greens, with a touch of goat cheese and a sprinkle of pecans, and a pomegranate dressing. This almost made me touch cloth.

The main course was beef tenderloin, with a side of scalloped potatoes and baby asparagus. The meat melted in my mouth, literally.

This brings us to dessert. Now, as most of you are well aware, I have been off sugar for 3 weeks now. In fact, I had a huge dilemma before the wedding trying to decide between wine or cake. When I found out that there was no cake I thought it would be an easy choice. However, the traditional wedding cake had been replaced with: Chocolate Lavender Creme Brulee.

Well ladies and gentlemen, the choice was made. Was there any way in hell that I could pass up this 500 calorie, 40 grams of fat small little pot of chocolate deliciousness? I think not. After eating the entire pot of brulee, I realized that it was so rich and sweet that it sort of made me sick. I am really enjoying not eating sugar, and I think that this one little treat I gave myself sort of renewed my faith in my process.

Well ladies and gentlemen, that is my story. Now if you'll please excuse me I must get to the gym immediately to punish myself for my indulgence.
