I use to be able to eat loads when I went to a buffet. Really, I could. In the olden days I could make about 4 – 5 trips for hot food before I even consider dessert. I was in heaven in a buffet. When I lived in Vancouver the first thing I noticed was that there weren’t many Chinese all-you-can-eat places. In fact, the rage there was all-you-can-eat Japanese food. Which, funny enough, is kinda lacking in Toronto.
Anyways, over the years my food consumption has changed. I don’t know if it’s age or that I truly am watching what I’m eating (which I doubt), but I can’t do all-you-can-eat like I use to and it’s sad. It was my parents 40th Wedding Anniversary today, yup they made it to the 40th mark, and they decided to go to a buffet to celebrate. I took barely 3 trips to the hot buffet and I had to call it a day. I didn’t even load up my plates like I normally do. And, I just could not stuff another morsel in my mouth and if I did then I was endangering the room, little room, that I had left for dessert. Sadness.
I wonder why I can’t consume the way I use to. Perhaps I need to be a bit more strategic the next time I hit a buffet. Starve myself and then gorge when I get there. I just feel like if I’m going to do buffet, I should eat epic proportions so that I get my worth. I know, I’m strange. 😀
