I had lunch today in downtown Philly with the wonderful and always-interesting Lab Cat. We ate at a restaurant whose philosophy seemed to be “why serve a reasonable portion of food when you can serve a GINORMOUS portion of food?!?!”
This is what Cat got when she ordered a piece of chocolate cake for dessert:
Use the fork as your scale. That’s a normal-sized fork. That’s NOT a normal-sized piece of cake. In fact, I wouldn’t even call that a piece of cake. I’d call that a little cake-berg, calved off of some unfathomably large chocolate glacier. Cat ate a portion of it that amounted to a reasonable dessert, and you could barely tell she touched it. The remainder went home with her, to satisfy her sweet tooth for many a day. I hope she didn’t strain her back carrying it home.
Here’s another view:
I’m afraid the pictures don’t quite do it justice.
