Chicken, veggies and hot sauce...nothing wrong with that.

Had a small victory over temptation this evening. My wife is out of town on a business trip. Took her to the airport this morning. I hate driving in Atlanta and the airport is just a pain to get in and out of. And traffic was light being it was Sunday morning. Gotta pick her up and head back through that awful traffic during rush hour traffic later this week. Dreading that.
Anyway, the small victory. I thought very hard about getting pizza this evening. I could pig out and no one would know. Well, I would know, so instead, I had a piece of leftover grilled chicken and some oven-roasted veggies and drizzled it all with hot sauce. Very tasty and filling. Not as tasty and filling as pizza, but if I had pizza I would not be feeling very good about it.

    Thank you. This was very good. I am starting to really like roasted veggies. It used to be I could do without them, but now veggies are an important part of the meal. Guess that comes with ageing.

    Very good of you. It can be hard to force yourself to eat good when the wife is on the road and nobody would know any different.

    Couldn't you just drop her off at a MARTA station? That's what I did when I was in Atlanta a few months back.
