Whoa Man!

Tonight we (DH, Darly & I) went to Church service because we are going to the Rockie's Family Faith day tomorrow. After Church we went out to dinner at Black-eyed Pea.

Dh & I normally share a dinner since most places make them way too big. So I decided I wanted their Chicken Fried Steak (I wanted something that I couldn't or wouldn't make at home!) When our waiter found our that we were sharing he suggested that we try their "Texas Sized" Chicken Fried Steak. But I insisted that all we needed was the regular portion. And WHOA MAN! was I right!

Look at the picture of what we ordered in the menu... that's it next to the green beans in the first picture. That is NOT the size of the meal we were served. When our order arrived on a 10inch plate, the steak covered about 75% of the plate!

Dh & I looked at this mass of meat and asked our waiter, "Just how big is that Texas sized steak?" He told us it was much bigger and would hang off the edges of the plate by a few inches. Are your eyes rolling? Cuz mine are! Who on earth could eat that much? The waiter said the only way to finish one was to have two people share it. I think that all 3 of us couldn't have finished a Texas Sized. As it was DH & I had a hard time with the regular...although we did find that the actual meat wasn't quite as big as it's breading. Still I wasn't able to eat half.

Darly ordered her grilled cheese with cheddar cheese on it. Our waiter said he used to do the same thing as a kid. Cheddar is much better. ;o)

Excuse me, I need to loosen my pants.


  1. Yikes... so much food! It's insane! ;)

  2. Wow! Who can eat all that?

  3. Way too much food.. but it sounds like you had fun anyway :-)

  4. I like small portions...

  5. Something needs to be done about portion control. Seriously.
