I can’t believe how many times I’ve eaten food from a restaurant in the last seven days! Five times! Five I say. That’s a lot.
Of course that’s unusual for us. The only reason we weren’t having home cooked meals over the last week was due to our family reunion. We kept meeting up in restaurants – what can I say!
Then last night, well … it was my birthday. I didn’t want to cook, and as I said in an earlier post my husband is NOT a cook. As much as I’m sure he would have loved to cook us a nice meal it wouldn’t have been a good one. So we ordered out.
A few months ago my husband discovered a very nice Italian restaurant in the area. I’m not really big on pasta dishes, but I must say the two times we’ve ordered meals from this restaurant I’ve been very happy with my meal. So – guess what I had for dinner last night? Yep, a very nice pasta dinner from our newly discovered restaurant. I had fusilli with Chicken. They include grilled peppers and eggplant in the pasta and it compliments it nicely. Chris had Fettuccine Alfredo, his favorite pasta dish. I swear he could eat that every day. We each ordered a slice of chocolate cake for desert, but we were too full and didn’t end up eating desert. We didn’t even touch the fantastic salad we’d ordered either.
In fact, we didn’t even finish our Pasta dishes. Are serving sizes getting even larger? I think every single restaurant meal I was served over the last week was far too large. I can’t eat a lot of food at one time because of my Crohn’s, but when Chris sets aside food for later or to take home in a doggy bag you know the serving was too large. Oh well, we’ll have some delicious leftovers for dinner tonight.
Have you found that most restaurant servings are far too big? Perhaps that’s how they justify the price they are charging?
