Last night I went out to dinner with good friends. I try to stay away from Mexican restaurants and Italian restaurants when dining out, because I find that I have less control surrounded by some of my favorite fattening foods. Our friends picked the restaurant which turned out to be Italian. I made sure that I looked at the menu first online so that I would have an idea of what I could order and not be tempted at last minute. Surrounded by many delicious sounding pasta and pizza entrees, I found a steak salad on the menu. Before I even left home, I decided that's what I would choose. The salad was still probably more than I should have eaten for a weeknight, and it did have shredded cheese and lots of steak on it, but I still did better than everyone else at the table who opted for big plates of pasta. I left the table feeling more than satisfied and very happy with my choice.
