Food portions are still too large..... - Page 2

post #31 of 33

Okay, hold the phone, I have the best ever!

We just came back from the bright lights of the BIG CITY (we went up to Scottsdale) for a couple of days. 

We had dinner one night at this American Italian place that we had been to in Philly (we didn’t know that was a chain restaurant). 

I ordered one of the Pasta Entrees, which of course I couldn’t finish (it come a serving platter for crying out loud!!) and the waitress asks me, “which one do I want to take home?” 

HUUUH??! 

I said the four raviolis I didn’t finish, “No” she says, “I get ANOTHER dish to take home”, there must have been like 9 or so to choose from!!  

So friend-husband” (I like that endearment) blurts out, “Meat Lasagna”. 

So guess what’s for dinner at our house?  Leftovers.

And then you go into an extremely expensive restaurant in callifornia and the desert is a cube of cheese with a slice of ham, why cant they get it right?! there are some cultures where people eat until they are about 90% full and then stop, I have definitely been cultured the other way, eat until you are ready to burst! its not a good idea though, particularly after restaurant meals I feel completely stuffed on the way home, we need to blame ourselves as much as the chefs though...

Examples?

The tiny portions on huge plates style of "California Cuisine" peaked in the eighties and was dead by the early nineties. It's been nothing but a false cliche for the past generation.
