Date Night!

Thanks to Joe for scoring us free tickets to the movie theater he works at, Tony and I took advantage of Tuesday night half price meals and $3 draft beers and $3 house wines!  We saw the Informant with Matt Damon – I am not going to say anything to spoil the movie for anyone, you’ll have to decide for yourself to go!   I gotta post quick, I still have to watch Biggest Loser!

Breakfast: 2 ounces Italian whole wheat bread, 1/2 cups egg whites, 1 ounce 75% reduced fat Cabot cheese, 1.5 ounce steak and red pepper and spinach.


With a nectarine on the side – it was okay, maybe a bit under ripe?


Lunch was leftover beef stew from last night, along with cucumber and red pepper slices with a drizzle of light honey mustard dressing.



So we get to the movie theater, get seated with menus and no one even comes by in 20 minutes!  So we go to the bar, and we see a bartender behind the bar, and still nothing!   So I say kind of loudly, we’re kind of thirsty!  He came over and said that he was training, and couldn’t serve us!  Just then, a nice girl came up, took our drink and food order and escorted us to our seat.  Turns out they are training new staff for a new theater that is being opened, and thought a Tuesday night would be a good night to train!  Luckily, we got our first round on the house! 😀

Only a couple pictures, since the theater is kind of dark.  Tony took this cool picture of my wine!  It was a chardonnay and not bad!


We split an appetizer:  Olive tapenade – a mixed olive tapenade with goat cheese on a grilled baguette.  I don’t even like olives, but the goat cheese won!

For my entree I got: Wagyu Beef Burger Duo – with applewood smoked bacon, lettuce on a brioche bun with house potato chips.  Each burger was about the size of a biscuit?  Perfect size and about 8 chips on the side.  It was delicious!   I am guess dinner was around 750 calories?

I took advantage of the complimentary blanket!

  1. What a fun date night, even with the staff-in-training! I want to see the Informant – hope it was good.

    Your beef stew looks thick and tasty – I will have to make it once our weather cools.

  2. oh, sweet! What a great dinner, and I loved that they didn’t go crazy with the portions. That just shows how confident they are with their QUALITy of the food!

    How did you make your beef stew? It looks TOTALLY amazing, and very homey and comfort-food-like!

  3. Those theaters look so cool! I think they’re opening one up closer to me.. ohhh la la!

    I want to grab a spoon and reach through the screen to eat that beef stew! Yummm

  4. Hi there,

    I just needed to come over and comment how DIVINE your food looks. That stew looks yummy!!


  5. Wow, top notch service at the movies!! Good deal! I’m a huge Matt Damon fan, I hope you enjoyed it 🙂
    Check out my Biggest Loser review! I’m into it now, I never thought I would be.

  6. What a fun movie theatre. I would love to be able to sit in a comfy chair, eat good food, and I defintely would enjoy the blanket!

  7. what a fun date night! I hope the movie was good – I think it looks funny, but we’ll wait until it’s on DVD anyways.

  8. OOHHH date night ! have a great time!

    ahhh toasty blankets!

  9. I love how you do your posts with the calories and stuff in the picture. its so great! you’re awesome to keep track and stay healthy and motivated!! 🙂 Did you want to kill that purple girl on biggest loser,or was it just me?

  10. Oh I wish we had a theater like this near us, it sounds like so much fun. I guess I’ll have to do this at home!!

  11. what a fun night! i love the picture of your breakfast sammie and all that dripping cheese, mmmm.

  12. Wow…. what an AWESOME theater! I haven’t seen that movie. I’ll have to wait until it comes out on DVD. Hubby and I have babies so we don’t go out to movies a lot. We rent or watch DVR’d shows after the kids are in bed. So romantic! Ha….. so about BL…. yes, I love how everyone on the blogesphere has recaps! I said it on a couple comments already but I’ll say it again. Shay was such an eye opener. I guess I just didn’t realize just how out of shape these people are. I mean, she was excited about 6 minutes on the “Jacob’s Ladder.” That really touched me for some reason. I actually teared up. I gained weigh when I had my kids- 50 pound with my first and 30 with my second. It’s a lot of weight…. but I was ALWAYS able to do normal activities. Sheesh…. it just reminded me of why these people are really there. They need to lose major pounds. So sad. Oh and the little love story at the end- SO CUTE! The guy (can’t remember his name) looks SO GOOD now! And the other guy (Sean I think) looks great as well! Can’t wait to hear what you thought!

  13. just found your blog! and your food pics are amazing!! made me wanta big juicy peach!! the cukes and peppers look soo good!!

  14. I wish we had a theatre like that…closest thing we’ve got is a place with comfy seats and fried food like fries & tenders!

  15. I must be craving vegetables because those cukes and peppers do look oh-so-good!

  16. Ohh fun theater. We don’t go out to the movies but I think my stepson when to one of these in OK once. He probably already knows about it LOL

    Looks and sounds like fun though.

    Those cucumbers and red peppers look delish!
