On our recent holiday to Oregon and Washington State we ate out the entire time. Let me first say that generally we are normal people with normal appetites. I ordered what I thought was going to be an average breakfast and it turned out to be GINORMOUS!!I ended up only eating a quarter of what was on the plate and unfortunately had no way to take away the rest. Why do restaurants do this? Had I known I would have split a plate with my Mom or hubby. Mom was not feeling very hungry and ordered what they called "A little less". She could not finish hers either. First let me say that it was extremely tasty and when I have the time I will post a great review on Trip Advisor with a warning about portion size. I would have been just as happy getting half for $4 but that option was not on the menu. The biscuit (yes I broke the no bread rule on holidays) was one of the best I have ever tasted and huge. The apple turkey sausage was yummy. The potatoes were delightful. Yet no human being should eat this amount of food at what was advertised as two eggs with sausage. I know restaurants want to be seen as generous but if I ate all of this I would have gained 5 lbs that day.
Is it just me or has portion size gotten completely out of control?
