But I wanted it...


So today is my boss’s birthday and to celebrate, our whole department got to go to Maggiano’s! If you do not have one of these restaurants close to you, you need to move…immediately! This is my all time favorite place to eat and I usually can never say no to the obscenely huge BLOCKS of lasagna they serve but today, I prevailed!

I have been doing soooo good with eating right this week. The hardest part is over – you know those first few days that your stomach is just DYING for more food?? I have made it past that and did not want to send myself flying backwards just because of one incredibly delicious yet totally unneeded piece of lasagna…so I got a grilled chicken dish instead.

MAKE NO MISTAKE – this was not at all as delicious as I wanted it to be but I think/hope my waistline will thank me later. Now that we are back to the office (after a 2 ½ hour lunch…oops), I am dreaming of that lasagna and trying to pretend that it is repulsive and never worth eating.

Yeah, right…

XOXO

Oh yummy yummy! We had a Maggiano's in Richmond, VA but none near my new home in Louisville :( They are awesome! Everything about them is to dye for. Even their after dinner mints of candy coated mint chocolate goodness. Yum!

Oh you make the lasagna sound so good! I think its great to eat healthy as much as possible, but its hard to stay with it when you have to deny yourself of something so good! When I really have a craving I won't completely deny myself. I limit it to once a week-ish and box up most of the meal before I eat to help with portion control! I just couldn't say no to something so good!

I love Maggiano's! I chose to go there for my graduation dinner when I graduated from high school. I love their fettuccine alfredo!!!

Ooh I just went to a Maggiano's for the first time last weekend! There isn't one where I live, but Joe and I were in LA visiting his parents, and there's one there. I must say, it was pretty delicious...

BUT. There is a restaurant here in Santa Barbara called Palazzio, and it is about 100 times BETTER, believe it or not. :-) Best Italian food I've ever had in my life, hands down.

That sounds so good.

Just found your blog and enjoyed reading it.
I hope you will stop by and visit me. The May give away has started....and next week I will be blogging from Disney World.

I could never have that kind of self control! BTW, I guess I need to move. I've never even heard of that place!
