Carbloading?

No, I think I should call it overeating.

The Delicious Mrs S had her heart set upon going out for a meal this lunchtime with the three of us as she had some 2 for £10 vouchers, as there were four of us I was commissioned to hunt the interweb for another one. After great difficulty and the threat of defenestrating  the elderly printer we were off to a large restaurant and its overloaded carvery.

As I am running the Gatliff 50km tomorrow I saw the carvery and began to fill my plate with every vegetable option available:
  • Roast potatoes
  • Cauliflower in white sauce
  • Sage and onion stuffing!
  • Yorkshire puddings x2
  • Peas
  • Carrots
  • Red cabbage
  • Bread sauce
  • Gravy
My plate was overloaded and I was a tad embarrassed when I went past other diners whose plates seemed to be a little less filled than my mound. Head down I got to our table tucking in and as I dabbed the last smear of gravy from my plate leaving it perfectly clean Mrs S shoved the pudding menu towards me and there was only one thing that had my name on it a Chocolate Brownie Ice Cream Sensation.....an enormous calorie packed ordeal which left my stomach near bursting point and the guilty pleasure of me meeting one of the Deadly Sins....Gluttony.

The Smallwood family were last seen rolling out of the carvery restaurant having lost the ability to walk but I am happy as I am now fully loaded for tomorrow's run
