I confess I'm sort of scared of certain foods. As if the food had the power, not me (which if I'm being honest - and why not... it still kind of does - but not for long). For me the two big food groups that are the most frightening are sweets and pasta. I know, I know, they're not technical food groups but in my twisted little world they are. There are not many sweets that I don't like. I love everything chocolate / caramel / coconut / peanut butter / cakey / and ooey gooey. So of course, being some of my favorite things to eat, I tend to overindulge a little. Pasta is the other biggie. I love Italian food, and love all the yummy sauces and cheeses that go with it.
So when planning our menu for the week, my darling husband says, "I'd really like to have some lasagna." Now, naturally we do a meat-less version, but that just usually means it's got way more cheese than it ought to have. I have a hard time denying my husband just about anything because he hardly ever asks for anything. So we had lasagna last night. And OH MAN was it good.
But again, I portion-ized it and felt good about that. Yay for portions and I will tell you, I enjoyed the hell out of every single bite that I had!
