Crab bowls hold the bread and there were more of them for the empty shells.
The main event - crab cioppino.
Okay, I am sure the followers of my healthy life-style quest are wondering if I ate all this food or not. Nope. My splurge for the night was the prosecco and red wine and one pinwheel appetizer. I realize I didn't get a picture of the green salad that was also on the table. I piled my plate with greens and topped it with a few strips of chicken breast from the pasta, dressed with a little balsamic vinaigrette and that was my dinner. I did put of piece of the garlic bread on my plate and stared at for what seemed a long time. Half way through dinner I asked David if he would like my piece of bread. I have not been eating white flour or French bread because I am addicted to it. I was able to let it go, feel full and satisfied with the salad and wine. I did have a bite of crab too. For sessert there was sugar-free apple pie and lemon custard pie. I love anything lemon so it was a bit hard to pass that up, but I did opt for the sugarless apple pie and ate the filling and left the crust. It was delicious with a cup of decaf.
