Little FAT Me

I work full time and I barely have time to breathe. In 2005 hurricane Katrina rearranged my life, since then I have gained roughly 80-90 pounds. I believe that it started in depression and became an addiction. I have started and failed many diets and then decided that MAYBE if I combine diet and exercise with blogging and shopping I might be able to find success. This is the story of 2010 and my struggle to rise above addiction, pain, depression and fat.

Today's Gourmet ~ Vega's ♥

OMG, I can't. I will, but I can't. Today we went to dinner to celebrate the GoB's 30th. (I know, not a day over 26!) We went to a restaurant called Vega's. It's really good. We ordered our fav foods from there, BUT here is the catch. Usually when we go we order what is called the 'Feed Me' where the chef just keeps sending out dishes, really small portions so you get all kinds of flavors and fun and after ten plates it is like one dinner. So when we ordered we were thinking of the tiny 'Feed Me' portions. Um, no. It was so much food! I am putting up pictures of GoB's also, just because they are so good!
As all birthday meals should, this one started with the free bubbly you get when they have your email address and know your birthday!GRUET Blanc de Noirs New Mexico Brut NV 375 ml.

Our salads:Strawberry's w/ Dandelion Vinaigrette Salad & Roasted Beet Salad (baby spinach, candied walnuts & goat cheese tossed with curried vinaigrette) As an FYI, my salad was the strawberry salad with dandelion vinaigrette. A-mazing!

My meal:Coriander Tuna (seared rare ahi with avocado-tomato relish & chili-cilantro vinaigrette)Espárragos a la Parrilla (grilled asparagus with roasted peppers)Steamed Mussels (with capers, red onion & fresh dill in white wine-butter broth)Vaca a la Plancha (7oz. grilled beef tenderloin with queso valdeon butter)

meal:Berenjena Napoleon (eggplant layered with fresh mozzarella, arugula, sun-dried tomatoes & basil pesto)House-smoked Alaskan Salmon (with dill-chive crême fraiche, croutons and accompaniments )Seared Diver Scallops (over Israeli cous cous confetti with mango-jalapeño butter)Moorish Pork (cured & grilled tenderloin over flash fried spinach & horseradish sour cream)

At home we shared:Chocolate Truffle Cake (flourless cake with raspberry coulis & cream)
