As I was getting my lunch today, I noticed that all of the salad plates were in the dishwasher. No biggie, with just the two of us, we don't run the dishwasher as often. I just got a dinner plate to use for my lunch. Since I pre-measure everything, I only had to heat it, put it on a plate and eat it. It was a good thing that the food was already measured or I could have easily over served myself. The amount of food on that plate looked minuscule.
It is the same amount of food that I eat every day. I'm just used to seeing it on a smaller plate. I ate and am satisfied. It reinforced to me, how easy it is to lose perspective. Normal servings on a giant plate seem small. Since I have a hard time leaving food on my plate, I need to be more aware of the size of the plates when I'm away from home eating.
What is it with plate sizes and dress sizes, huh?
BTW, the dishwasher is running as I type this.
