Dinner at the Diner

Last night we met up with Ilene, Michael and April for dinner at the Marietta Diner…home of MASSIVE portions!  Eammon and I haven’t been to the diner in years and I found the menu overwhelming with choices.  It was funny, I wanted so many things but I ended up ordering a cup of seafood bisque…yep just a cup of seafood bisque.  But that with a bit of Eammon’s giant side salad and a slice off the enormous entire loaf of bread that they brought to the table along with a square of the complimentary spanakopita, well I was stuffed.  Everyone else ordered whole meals and at the end of dinner there were a total of seven stuffed take-out boxes heading home with all of us.  Portions out-of-control!!

Both the girls ordered spaghetti for dinner but they each had their own eating style.
