Good work on the 1.6 aqua girl!
What did you end up doing at the Italian restaurant?
Pasta can be a bit tricky but most italian restuarants have a veal and vegie kind of dish, which is a good option.
I try to pick a pasta with chicken brocolli etc in a tomato sauce, i then spend the meal picking through and just eating the meat and veg and allow myself a slice of the yummy bread. I probably look like a fruit cake but what the heck - whatever works!
