Food enough for a week
Daughter and I went out yesterday to buy a new wireless router, a chore neither of us was really looking forward to. But once we’d done our duty, it was lunchtime. We decided to stroll Placerville’s Main Street and, once we found a restaurant that was actually open (many businesses in Placerville seem to think no one wants food or anything else on Mondays, for some reason) we’d have some lunch.
We didn’t stroll long before we discovered a new restaurant in an old location. Mexican food! We love Mexican food. So in we went.
The meal was fabulous. Much better than we expected, actually. And once we’d eaten, the very nice waitress suggested that we might like dessert, and proceded to reel off the dessert menu for the day. The first choice was “chocolate tower cake with raspberry sauce and vanilla bean ice cream.”
For some reason, daughter and I could conjure up no willpower. We decided we’d share a single order of the cake and ice cream, expecting that the portions of both goodies would be rather small. Heh. Well, to the right you can see what the grinning waitress brought to our table a few minutes later.
That’s the largest serving of cake — meant for one person — that I’ve ever seen. We laughed and laughed. And then we dug in.
I figure I’ll eat again on … Saturday.
