We are blessed to have a drive-in movie theatre just a few minutes up the road. Last night they were showing the unbeatable combination of "Maleficient" and "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." I recommend them both.
We took our own food. My daughter made chicken salad with veggie pasta and lemonade with stevia, and brought fresh fruit. I brought the popcorn, chips and almonds (someone has to be a little naughty) - most of which none of us touched.
But I blew my budget anyway, and so did she. How? Mistake #1: we entered the concession stand. Mistake #2: after perusing all the naughties, both of us (independently) chose the soft pretzel as the least damaging offering.
WRONG!! Why didn't I look it up first??? One large soft pretzel, pass on the cheese, brush off most of the salt -- almost 500 calories. Almost 100 carbs. Holy mustard, Batman!!!
I'd have been much better off with a Hershey bar. Smack!
