I think I’m full
No wonder there are so many obese people in this country. The portions restaurants serve are enormous.
Last Friday, I went to a Mexican restaurant for dinner. I started with chips, cheese dip and salsa and followed with a combination plate that could feed a family of four from the Sudan. Topped it off with fried ice cream.
Saturday morning, I got up and went to the Moreland Diner for coffee.
Nellie, my server, tried to tempt me with the waffle tower, a pecan waffle topped with country ham and a blueberry waffle and covered with pineapple chunks and three sausage patties. Served with cane syrup or sorghum syrup. Total calories — 4,929. I quickly calculated I'd have to run seven miles and do 2 1/2 hours of tai chi and kickboxing to burn off the calories. However, I did opt for sugar-free syrup and a diet coke.
Upon arriving home, I put on my running shorts but realized it was time for the football game, so I settled into my recliner with a bag of pretzels to watch the game.
Tomorrow, I'll eat better. Dixon Dodge
