Friday Fun Stuff. . .

You know, it 's not a wonder everyone I know is watching their weight . . . including me!  A few weeks ago, as we were dining out, and I notices how huge hamburgers are these days!  When I was younger, which was a long time ago, hamburgers were just a normal size, french fries came in a little bag, and the drinks were just one size, unless you ordered one for a child.  Now, just get a load of these burgers!!

We really giggled about this burger, my mom could hardly get her hands around it, let alone take a bite!!  She finally cut it in quarters to eat it, and then half of it went home with her.

Then, get a load of this big boy!!  Needless to say, we ended up bringing half of it home too, it was just huge!! And notice the fries, they really fill up the plate!  I guess it's time to start sharing a plate with my husband when we go out to dinner!?

Have a great week-end everyone!



  1. I really don't like the HUGE portions that every restaurant makes out of their menu items now. I always have to take half of it home. And really - if you can't get your mouth around it? Seriously???

  2. I must admit that those Hamburgers and fries looked so good. We do eat one once in a while but not like we used too. It does seem like the serving today are so huge. Loved the picture of your sweet Mom!
    Blessings, love and hugs for you all~

  3. Those burgers sure look yummy, but I totally agree that we don't really have to look very far to see why we have some of the health problems we have in our country.

  4. Hi Barb.....your mom is just as cute as can be!! Wow...and more wow...that is a huge burger!! Two people could eat this meal. I might looks delicious!!! I'm hungry right now, and if I could...I would take that burger right out of your mom's hands!! lol..

  5. Wow! Those are some big burgers! =) I totally know what you mean about portion size. We have become a super size me nation. I often split a plate with my hubby too! Blessings and Sunshine, Valerie

  6. Sweet Barb, I do love hamburgers! I can even remember, as a child, eating a hamburger three times a day on vacation (breakfast, lunch, & dinner at an IHOP). I must say THOSE you posted look so delicious and definitely not TOO big for me! :-)

  7. Oh boy, that is one delicious looking hamburger!
    Love your Mom's approach... elbows up, fingers clamped...***smile**.
    Reminds me of the way Guy on Diners, Drive-in's and Dives eats a burger!
    What a pro!

    Hope that this is a good week for you.

    Smiles :)

  8. Oh, I could go for one of those yummy looking burgers right now, Barb! I wish I'd had taken a picture of the tenderloin sandwich my hubby ordered just a couple of weeks ago. It was as big as a platter! I told him after we got home that we'd have to go back sometime and he could order another one just so I could get a picture. lol! Your sweet mother looks so cute trying to eat her sandwich. Hope you have a wonderful day and week ahead!
    Hugs, Cheryl

  9. That was such a fun day! I was so surprised that she ate half of it. Fun memories. Love you!!

  10. Hello, I have popped over from Kerin's blog.

    Burgers are BIG these days at most places-especially Red Robin
    I usually take part of mine home too.

    Have a super day!

    M :)

  11. Wow you Americans sure do up-size everything! That said I LOVE a good burger!


  12. I agree Barb.. It seems everything is supersized anymore.. I am trying to loose weight too. Those burger looked delicious..No wonder we live in an overweight America...The food is wonderful and there is lots of it.. I havae to just stay home or I would be eating...way to much.. lol Have a great week! Blessings!

  13. Yes those are some big burgers, but wow! Your mom should have sent that other half to me! Now I need to go to IF and get one of those.
