If I go to let's say, Golden Corral, I will get on one plate: Fried chicken, bourbon chicken, a slice of pizza and a steak. I'll also get a plate of macaroni and cheese, strawberries, and fried okra. Now, when I am presented with a large array of food, I become overwhelmed, and therefore lose my appetite. So I end up taking about one bite of each thing.
At desert time, I'll have cookies, pudding, a piece of whatever cake they have, and ice cream sundae and a brownie or rice krispy treat if they have it. Once again, I don't eat it all, I take a few bites of each and sneak the rest into ziploc bags in my purse to take home. LOL!
