    It seems to me that our family is getting used to buffet meals whenever there is an occasion. Last Thursday, we were treated to a buffet dinner in a seafood restaurant for my brother-in-law's birthday. Crabs, shrimps, broiled fish, it was filling no doubt and what's in doubt was my diet regimen. On the next night, we were again invited by my sister for another buffet dinner but this time in a Chinese restaurant.

    I have noticed that our dining was not as excited as the night before. And although the Chinese food was great, perhaps my husband was right in saying that what we ate the other night was not fully digested yet, huh.

    "All you can eat", is not the name of a diet! :);)

    I like the variety of a buffet but I usually avoid them because I tend to make sure I get my money's worth.:rolleyes:

    I used to like buffets because I could go back for more. Now, I rarely go back for more after my first plate. I still like buffets because of the options that are available, and because I can see what I am choosing.

    There are some sumptious buffets out there no doubt, however, the temptation to overeat is manifest. The last time I was faced with a wonderful buffet, I could feel my waistline expanding as I contemplated it. I told my friend, that I did not feel I should be ingesting all that. We had a veggie plate at a nearby pub. I love buffets, but until I feel life pigging out, I am going to avoid them. It seems like all that food is loaded with salt. This was Golden Corral that included a chocolate fountain...Someday maybe, but not today!

    The only buffet I eat at is the breakfast one at Shoney's.
    I can have as many bowls of Grits as I want. The wife just rolls her eyes and moves on.
    I used to put them on a plate with butter and use my spoon to make roads and truck sounds as I ate.
    Had to switch to a bowl to save the marriage. I don't say anything when she uses a fork at a Chinese restaurant
    when I use chop sticks.:rolleyes:

    Shoney's has some good food, I had the best club sandwich of my life at a Shoney's one time. I used to work at one, when I was in college Although our's was ELby's. I never worked so hard in my life. However, as a waitress I always had money, that part was good! Jeesh, and we had side work to do, restaurant work is tough,,no Thanks!
