One of Pauline’s sisters turned 40 yesterday so we were celebrating with the family at a wonderful all you can eat restaurant. I think I got it just right.
I managed to have a little bit of most of the things I liked but I didn’t have so much that I felt unwell afterwards. Have you ever had that feeling? You eat way too much because it’s all so good and you end up going home feeling quite seedy?
I certainly had a lot more to eat than I normally would on an average Tuesday night but I didn’t overdo it. There was the temptation to have more of the delicious curry and the magnificent roast pork but I resisted. I haven’t had a good bread and butter pudding for so long but I was content with a small serving so that I could sample a few of the other sweet dishes.
We had a tremendous evening of good food and great company.
By practicing some restraint I was able to head home feeling satisfied rather than regretting the last three or four dishes that I really didn’t need.
