The Cake

Yesterday after the conference we went to here
for dinner. The food was good but the portion size was HUGE. We are talking a one foot long platter of food for one person. I ordered a meatloaf sandwich. Actually it was TWO sandwiches, plus a huge portion of fries and coleslaw. The coleslaw was in a bowl on a bed of lettuce. It was hard to get the slaw out and the VERY dim lighting made it worse.

But back to the portion size. Did you see Mireille Guiliano, the author of French Women Don't Get Fat, on Oprah? She talked about portion size and remarked on how big it is here in the states. I agree and almost always take home a bag of food. Last night was no exception as I wanted a piece of cheesecake. So 3/4 of the sandwiches and most of the fries came home.

The cheesecake was heaven. It was Keylime and was so creamy and flavorful I cannot gush over it enough. Well worth the price per slice.
