A national pastime: Overeating
|Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs|
How gluttonous are we as a nation that before we even consume our next meal that we start thinking about the one for the next day? And it isn't like this is a fast food chain. When did it become customary for upscale casual restaurants to start offering BOGO deals?
I just wanted a regular bowl of spaghetti and meatballs but as an added bonus, I also received a tinfoil container of 'Momma's Lasagna.' I thought because the restaurant was providing a free entree, the portion size of the one you received at the table would be smaller. NOPE. There was so much spaghetti that I had to pack up the rest of my meal that night to take to go as well. Consequently, I spent today carbo loading and haven't even touched the lasagna yet.
And this is all in advance of the greatest eating holiday of the year. Because all I need to do is slip into those stretchy pants a few days early and begin practicing my food coma skills.
I need to go on a run. For the next three days.
