UD Dilemma: Five Course 4 year anniversary dinner

Tonight the Hubby and I enjoy our night out. Anniversary is next week, but I scored some great tickets for Teatro Zinzani tonight... circus and five course dinner.

I am sitting at 380 after breakfast and can have up to 1976... yay UD

Here is the Menu. I don't know portions:

Dinner Menu

Apertivo

Oaxaca Polenta

Oaxaca & hand made chorizo polenta cakes with roasted red peppers & sun dried tomato tapenade, jalapeno stuffed Calamata olives, garlic almonds and Manchego cheese

Sopa

Creamy Cremini Mushroom & Bronzed Nopales

With cilantro crème fraiche

Ensalada

Watercress, Jicama & Tomato Salad

With avocado, arugula and toasted pumpkin seeds, dressed with sweet honey-lime vinaigrette

Plato Principals

Guajillo New York Steak

NW Prime cut beef from Double R Ranch topped with a rich Guajillo demi glase, served with gorgonzola potatoes au gratin and oven roasted balsamic vegetables

~or~

Prawns Chimichurri

Wild caught prawns brushed with citrus chimichurri sauce served with our mild pascilla-cilantro rice and oven roasted balsamic vegetables

~or~

Handmade Stuffed Masa Cakes

Goat cheese, fresh herbs, hazelnuts and chick peas baked inside our hand made corn cakes, served with our savory Spanish mushrooms, mild pascilla-cilantro rice and sauteed red chard

Postre

Brazo di Gitano

Raspberry-white chocolate mousse filled almond cake roulade with balsamic macerated raspberries and white chocolate
Menu Enhancements

Additional ways to enliven your entrée

Spanish Garlic Mushrooms

Hand-picked by Elves and brought to our chef daily for your enjoyment
$5

Steak and Prawns

Add a 3.5oz. skewer of Prawns Diablo to your Guajillo New York steak
$6.50

Bread Basket from Macrina Bakery

Served with three flavors of whipped butter
$4.75

With out ordering any if the extras could this dinner be 1596? Obviously the last two Dinner options are the least heavy in calories... steak vs prawns vs veggie meal.

Should I worry about it?

I had a great DD yesterday. I kept to my cals, today I am at the lowest I have been since I started, and tomorrow will be another DD that I can control.

What Should I do?

Thanks.

I would just watch portions and not stuff myself, then follow up tomorrow with a good DD and go from there. Everything looks lovely, and you don't want to have to be stressing about it. I think it'll be fine.

Yowzers!!! That sounds yummy!! I think, since it is truly a rare occassion, I'd eat pretty much whatever I wanted knowing it might set me back...but not derail me.

Happy ANniversary!

This is a Free Day (FD) for you. Happy Anniversary! It sounds like a wonderful evening and a wonderful meal. Warmest regards, and I wish you both a happy lifetime together.

When occasions are very special, I believe in letting the rules and the numbers slide. Since JUDDD doesn't have No-No foods, there isn't anything you are forbidden to eat, and since we only have calorie ceilings, exceeding yours today (if you even do) isn't going to do much harm. JUDDD is very forgiving. You will be back on plan tomorrow with a good Down Day.

Enjoy your evening!

I would simply eat and enjoy without stuffing myself, and work on whatever damage occurs starting tomorrow. Special occasions are for living, not worrying over. And JUDDD lets us do just that.

I went to that show a few weeks ago SO, SO FUNNY!
I found the portions were pretty tiny and the food was good but (for me) not amazing.
Hope you had a great time!
