Everything in Moderation?

Postby Monika » Wed Jun 20, 2018 8:44 pm

It's Brian's birthday today and I took him out for a meal earlier on. He's a very plain eater and, sometimes, it's difficult to take him out to eat as he finds it hard to find anything bland enough. However, one of our neighbours recommended a restaurant where they also have a carvery, so I took him there,being right up his street and he enjoyed it.

I also enjoyed it as I was able to fill my plate with the quantity that I could manage, instead of being presented with an ordered meal which wouldn't go amiss with Desperate Dan. This is usual in today's restaurants and I finish up leaving a good half of what they serve me.

This got me thinking that I would love to find a restaurant where the portions were much smaller, which I would enjoy so much more and would leave me with room for a dessert too.

Having said that, from what I saw of other people's plates in the carvery, I might well be in the minority with this - having witnessed some seriously skillful tower-building of foodstuffs piled on plates they were carefully carrying back to their tables.

How's your appetite?

Just the same with me. I always take a plastic bag with me and some places give me a take away box which makes it look good. I too am a slow eater, my OH finishes mainly before I am halfway so I normally stop , can't bear to be left eating alone. You have my sympathy. Cheers Penny :evil:
