My parents are taking us to Zafferano tonight for the old bastido’s birthday. I’m very appreciative however (a winge coming on) I’m on a DIET. YES I have choices, but why would I want steamed fish and vegies, when I could have chargrilled crayfish on mash, with tomato and rosemary salsa, or a skewer of Moreton Bay bugs (my favourite) wrapped in pancetta over a field mushroom….STUFF the diet. I weigh in on Friday, do you think if I breathe in it will make a difference 😛
I’m not a big one for a huge 3 course meal. I LOVE desserts. Love, love, love them. So usually at a restaurant such as the one above they have a separate dessert menu that they don’t bring out when they give you the entree and main menus. This then results in me asking for the dessert menu, and feeling slightly uncomfortable, being chubby and self-conscious already and then asking for a dessert menu. I usually receive mixed reactions from wait staff, from giggles to raised eyebrows or smirks. But I need to see what’s on it before I decide what I’ll have for mains. It astounds me that people think this is strange. Of course I want to know what follows my main. I don’t think this is too silly.
Aside from the above, I am looking forward to great food and a mango daiquiri, even better when someone else is paying!
