Meet at Morton's

I had a lovely dinner with coworkers tonight. People in my department are all over the country and we're rarely in the same place so it's nice when we can see each other face to face.

We went to Morton's but first...I had a salad for lunch.

spinach, chicken, pepper, tomato, cucumber and a little cheddar with light Vidalia onion dressing

I also ate a bag of pretzels from the vending machine, a handful of cashews and about an ounce of dark chocolate.

We started dinner with a seafood platter.

I ended up having 2 shrimp and a few pieces of lobster, 1 raw oyster and a bit of lump crabmeat.

I wasn't enamoured of the salad choices so I got soup...a Lobster Bisque which was like drinking cream. Delicious.

I had some red wine...

and two hunks of onion bread with a bit of butter. I'm powerless.

Sorry for the picture quality - the lighting was for the birds.

I was able to have the best of both worlds, splitting entrees with Jo. We each had half a filet and a crabcake.

I had some mint tea...

and about a quarter of this chocolate mousse.

This holiday season, man. I can't get through a week without eating out. I'm toying with blowing off my rescheduled weigh in on Friday.

Someone talk me out of it.
