Enough with the Fries Already!!!

Monday, February 18, 2013

I realize the fast food industry has oversized themselves, but has anyone else noticed that the oversized portions of food have made their way into finer dining establishments?

My husband and I went out to dinner one night and I ordered a portobella mushroom sandwich that came with fries. When my plate arrived, I couldn't believe the amount. Half of the plate was filled with french fries! Seriously, what were they thinking? No one needs a half a plate of fries, regardless of how good they are. I'm happy to say that I only ate 10 of the fries and then I covered the plate with my napkin. The next time I go there, if I order something that comes with fries, I will ask ahead when I order that they only bring me a small amount. They're really good, but I hate throwing food out.

Remember, just because it was served on the plate, doesn't mean you have to finish it.

    Potatoes are pretty cheap - and they don't mind piling them on. French fries are one of my weaknesses. I don't eat them very often at all - but when I want them heck or high water would not stand in my way. Glad you were able to control yourself. emoticon
