Things Are Definitely Bigger in Texas

As I was driving from Denver to Texas several weeks ago, I stopped for the night in Amarillo, Texas, home of the Big Texan, which is, in turn, "Home of the FREE 72 oz. Steak."  I feel obliged to point out that a standard serving size (according to the food guide pyramid) is three ounces, or about the size of a deck of cards. 

The last time I went out to eat, I wasn't able to finish my six ounce steak after having had bread, a salad, and a baked potato.

No wonder 35% of Amarillo is considered overweight.  Jeez Louise.
