An Olympic Family Tradition on a Diet

This year we're breaking tradition. Usually for the Olympic Opening Ceremony our dinner is the cuisine of the host country. For example, two years ago, for the 2006 winter games, we had Italian food from an excellent local place. The price for our big family was a small fortune and it took the restaurant nearly sixty minutes to deliver it to us but it was all good - the kids loved it and a tradition was born.

But that was so two years ago when Skinny LSM wasn't around to keep Fat LSM in line. Back then, Fat LSM would put herself down for the sweet and sour chicken, fried rice, some egg rolls, and maybe one (or three) crab wontons. But Skinny LSM says hold on a minute, hops online, checks the calories of her proposed meal, and immediately put the kibosh on that idea. Too much saturated fat and way too much sodium.

This year's backup plan: Tokyo Joe's. I know it's Japanese food, but it's fast, fresh, and I still get to use chopsticks.
