At Mexican restaurants, if the salsa is good, I'll have a bit too much chips & salsa (especially when having a beer) and that will fill me up sometimes.

A local Cajun restaurant offers crawfish cakes as an appetizer after having it a few times and not being able to eat my entree I now order it as a main course which also comes with collared greens and taco rice Yum !!

Probably most of us have. The last time for me was recently on a cruise ship. I ordered mussles as my starter. I think there were at least 12 of them. I managed to eat dinner but didn't enjoy it as much as I would have if I didn't have the appetizer.

I can't ever recall the problem. I have wondered a few times if I were going to die because I ate as much as I did. I have canine instincts.

I get full fast, but I love variety. Life is hard!

If price were no object at a restaurant, I would like to have a soup, a salad, an appetizer or two, and skip the entree. And that would be too much food if it came with bread as well!

In the Seventies we took my mother out for dinner at The Broker in Denver, CO. At that time they served an impossibly large bowl of very fresh peel and eat jumbo shrimp with every meal.


Between the shrimp, fresh bread basket and cold butter by the time our meals arrived we didn't have room to eat them. We still talk about the extravagance.
