Whenever we had a large, heavy meal or exceptionally rich dessert, which was infrequent, my mom would always say, "coffee and conversation tomorrow."
That's what I'm doing today. Although there's no one here to converse with. Except Miss Read.

Black coffee is on the docket today as yesterday was an all-out sugar and carb fest in celebration of my daughter's birthday. First, we went to a place called The Breakfast Club.
This is what we ate.
And you know how "your sins will find you out"? A local TV news station was on site filming for a weekly segment on local restaurants. No kidding. They asked if they could film us while we ate. On Thursday, yours truly will be live, stuffing myself with french toast! I can't wait to see it. Not.
After a day of shopping, we hit up The Cheesecake Factory for -- wait for it -- pasta and cheesecake.
It was an altogether satisfactory day, but today I'm glad to be back to my healthy lifestyle. No leftovers or doggie bags here to tempt me. And the really great thing is that I don't think I'd even be tempted. I'm realizing how much better I feel eating real, whole foods. I'm thankful for my salad today.
It will be quite a while before I want to do this again, and isn't that the goal?
