Lunch at Atlanta Fish Market

Today I took my youngest son out to lunch to celebrate his birthday.  We went to one of our favorite restaurants....Atlanta Fish Market for a late lunch.  We are planning a family birthday dinner celebration next weekend when we can get everyone together and have dinner, cake and sing to him while he blows out his candles.  But...since his birthday was this week, I wanted to make sure we got some celebrating in this week as well.  You can never celebrate your birthday too many times!  We shared a delicious appetizer of Jumbo Lump Crab Cocktail that was probably one of the best I've ever had in my entire life.  The "lumps of crab" where humongous and so delicate and sweet.

I had their broiled Atlantic Salmon with olive oil and lemon and a side of buttered thin green beans. He had their Pecan Crusted Idaho Salmon Trout with bourbon honey butter with whipped sweet potatoes and broccoli for his sides. Our meals were amazing, as usual. It was nice spending some one on one time with him this afternoon too. It's also nice to know that you can still eat out and enjoy a nice meal while avoiding wheat and grains if you know what to order and how it is prepared. I snapped a couple photos of our meals for you to see. Enjoy!

What lovely meals! We're finding, too, that it's not really all that difficult to eat out and eat healthy, too.

Thanks, CyberSis. I agree -- at first it seemed like it wouldn't be possible, but the more you do this, the easier it is to pick and choose the things you can eat. :-)
