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.
