Vince was watching some show on TV over the weekend and they were talking about counting calories to lose weight. Last night Vince was reading about calories on the internet and he asked me . . what meal do you fix that has the lowest number of calories? Like I know! Off the top of my head I would say chicken piccata. My thoughts on losing weight (not that I think about it much) is that you can eat anything you want, just eat small portions and exercise. Don’t get me wrong . . I don’t eat small portions and I don’t exercise enough and I do need to lose weight.
Shortly after this discussion, I fixed myself dinner. Vince was still feeling bad and he only wanted soup — Campbell’s Chicken Noodle soup. He can have all he wants . . I don’t like that stuff at all!
That’s my dinner .. not one hour after our calorie discussion. I totally forgot, on purpose maybe, about calories when I sliced that piece of cake to have right along with my egg and toast .. not even as dessert but as part of my meal! That’s what an empty nester can have for dinner. Dessert along with the meal or . . maybe instead of a meal! That’s even better!
