Day 54-Friday: Dinner

I really did try to eat as healthy as possible in the beginning of my night out with the girls. Dinner featured:

Steamed Pork Dumplings
California Roll and Cucumber Roll (I had actually ordered tuna roll, but after further inspection of the restaurant I was happy to have the vegetarian option)
Oranges and a fortune cookie for dessert.

Later that night I hate my weights worth in Cheetos and chocolate covered pretzels, but if I didn’t take a picture of it, it didn’t actually exist.

Day 55-Saturday Recap

Breakfast:
2 Hard boiled egg whites and an English muffin

Dinner:
Salad with turkey and blue cheese dressing

Lunch consisted of nibbling to oodles of gross food at my parents house that I would never in a million years by in my own. 

Day 56-Sunday is Sederific
I love my family, but family get togethers are so stressful.  Hopefully this will be the last one till Thanksgiving.  I mean of course I’ll visit my family before then, but it won’t be a big cooking, cleaning, stepping on each others toes hoopla that everyone enjoys so much.  But hey, at least there was oodles and oodles of good food to be had.

Breakfast 4.20.08

Matzo Brie made with egg whites and a bucket-load of salt.

Seder

That’s my uncle reading the Kiddish before we ate.  Reason #451 why I’m forever grateful to have been born female.

Pre-Pig Out Table. 
Maischewitz, the laughing stock of wines everywhere. 

 

Matzoh Ball Soup and Salad

 

Horashis (sp?) on Matzoh, which is basically like a apple, wine, walnut puree (I’m not a big fan, but someone dished it out to me while I was away from the table and I felt obligated to eat it.

Gefilte Fish, I did not feel obligated to eat this.  I think this is the grossest thing on the planet, but I figured I’d share the joy of Jewish cookery with the interweb.  Icky!

The good stuff.

Baked eggplant
Sauteed Spinach
Roasted Chicken
Brisket

So much food, they had to roll me back to Brooklyn afterward.  I really need to take it easy the rest of the week to make up for the bajillion courses of comfort food on Sunday.
