Went to dinner with Sis...
Down by the River!
Went to dinner with my sis and my son tonight at Ski Shores Cafe...but I guess you already guessed that! lol
I love this place. We found it a few weeks ago when I was needing a boost in my 'I Gotta Have Some Water Views' arm. I just happened to find them on YELP.com and discovered they are only 15 minutes from my home! Can We Hear A Hallelujah!!!
Their blog has tons of pics for you to enjoy and the story of how they revamped this lil place into quite an enjoyable eatery and right smack dab on the Colorado River that flows right through Austin!
We literally sat inches away from the edge of the deck that sticks out over the water. Boaters, skiers, waterskiers and the likes entertained us while we sat on this glorious deck awaiting our food. They have a small stage area where local artists come to serenade you while you eat and drink. They are preparing to have a Movie Night where you can bring the family, eat pizza, and enjoy a movie by the river! Truly an outstanding establishment and SO CLOSE TOO!!!
My sis and I split a bacon cheese burger with guacamole! AND instead of fries we opted for an order of fried okra. I know...fried okra may not be the healthiest....but I only ate a small portion before I was full as a tick (as they say here in Texas!) I also had a Miller Lite which is 0/0 in the BFC counter book! YaY!!! Only thing I regret was forgetting to get a pic of our burger! It was large and yummy! So my meal was a total of 5 sugar/3 carb points (due to the half of large hamburger bun and okra) Wish you ALL lived here so we could meet up ...down by the river! (always think of Chris Farley pullin up his britches when I type that! )
But I digress....
Earlier today I enjoyed a quesadilla that I made with a La Tortilla Factory Tomato and Basil Wrap. I just put the tortilla in a hot skillet sprinkled cheese on top....added a few no salt spices...folded it over onto itself once the cheese started melting and Viola! An Italian Quesadilla! Delish! 0/1 BFC points!
Breakfast was a Jay Rob Chocolate Whey Protein Shake w/ Super Seed! YUM!
Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...... don't tell anyone...but i think i'm down another pound! wooo hooo's are in order!
Thank you to all who commented on last nights post. It was a bit of self talk...and it worked! Had a Marvy Day today. I'm so proud of all of you....even in the most difficult times...we can say... WE DID IT!!! I love your hearts...we are one you know...so when you hurt...we all hurt....when you rejoice...We ALL Rejoice!
Be blessed and then GIVE IT AWAY!!!
