For my frivolous Friday post this week, I’ll talk about food. Have you ever been out for dinner and wondered why the portion sizes in restaurants are SO huge? I have. During our visit to Toronto recently, we ate at many fine restaurants and ate PLENTY of food. On our last night we visited Canyon Creek, and I decided that I just couldn’t stomach another heavy meal, so while everyone else was ordering meals that came with potatoes, veggies and meat, I ordered what I thought was a simple meal of a pork chop and rice. This is what I got:
It may be difficult to tell, but the plate was at least 12 inches and held a double chop that was at least four inches thick, smothered in a delicious lingonberry sauce. Not a light meal, as I found out. Maybe we expect larger sizes because the prices can be so high in restaurants, but really, do we need all this extra food?
We had a marvelous time out on our last night in the city and it was well worth it, but I won’t be craving pork chops for a while.
Long live the giant pork chop!
