    Looks like Burl has a Big Mac, double fries, fried pie and extra-large drink. Joy is showing her usual restraint and class with just a Big Mac, fries and extra-large drink.
    Sue already knows the answer to “How much will Burl and Joy eat?” Answer, “How much do you have?”
    Marg, you are absolutely correct, they don’t think there is anything wrong with them consuming the same amount of food as a small nation.

    I would hate to see them at an “All You Can Eat” buffet. Apart from the enormous quantities they would consume (I bet they’ve bankrupted many a fast-food outlet) I have a strong suspicion they Joy caries Tupperware with her wherever she goes – lots and lots of Tupperware. I wouldn’t be surprised if the car boot was full of Tupperware, and under the pretence of going to the ‘ladies’, or admiring the mid-day sun or something, she sneaks full containers into the boot, and re-stocks with empty ones. Several times. After all, it’s not illegal. It’s all you CAN eat, not all you DO eat.

    “Let’s stop at White Castle and knock down a few sliders on the way to “so and so’s” wedding reception"
    Actually did that (in much younger days) because it was going to be 2 hours between Church, pictures and reception. Didn’t have to worry; others did exactly the same including Bride’s Dad. Close by liquor store also saw uptick in business for that “gap” in time.
    The Pennys do this on a routine basis I would imagine. Good thing Joy has “fountain pop”; wouldn’t want her belching excessively through dinner.

    Oh, a Mickey D’s appetizer!
    If the restaurants that serve “all you can eat” didn’t want you to take it, they wouldn’t put so much out.
    You gonna eat that baked potato?

    Just look around, the “Penny’s” are everywhere, and that is why your insurance costs so much! We haver become a nation of fat people. I agree with Dazz when she says she watches her weight. Then again the Pennys wouldnt have to look to far to watch theirs, its right in front of them! LOL

    My weight is OK, but this vegetarian thing is going to be a pain (especially no seeds and nuts which I learned were healthy) and I just discovered a whole unopened packet of pepperoni in the frig which is definately NOT. I am looking forward to trying the plan for a whole year; just wish I could find others doing it (like some who have already started).
    Even among my friends, most prefer to take meds rather than change lifestyle, so even all my FB groups have not responded. I had already fixed cholesterol without Lipitor or such, so I should be able to do this. I’m afraid it will be SO unpalitable that even I cannot sustain it. I’d better get started and throw out the pepperoni before I get too discouraged.
