Why does food taste sooooo much better when you go out to eat?
Is it because a nice person brings you the food?
The dim lighting? The loud music? Rustic decor?
Or is there another reason?
If you have ever worked in a restaurant, you know that
cooks love to put things into dishes. They think it is their duty.
And if you think about it, you would have to admit:
THAT is why YOUR hamburger does not taste like
the one you get when you go out to eat.
And that is why we LOVE to go out to eat.
So we can better fool ourselves into thinking we are doing good.
Three days later, when the weight shows up, (a lag)
We won't remember all the sugar salt and soy filler and additives we ate.
And won't be able to find the culprit!
I worked on again and off again as a waitress..... *gasp*...
till I was 28. So I've seen cooks do
every many things!
Like adding lots of extra sugar. And vodka. And twice as much cream.
Like anything else. When the inspectors are there, every one follows the recipe.
When they are gone, they make their own recipe. And it's soooooo good!
More butter! More cream!
Twice as much salt as they use on the cooking channel!
Now THAT is alot of salt!
It's not a light breading....... hells no!
It's two freaking inches thick!!
It's not a table spoon full of dressing. That won't do!
How about a half a cup - to start!
Restaurants like to stretch the budget with fillers.
Different butter blends. All kinds of substitues.
Use your head when you go out to eat!
Sorry - couldn't resist!
It's the only way to be sure!
Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk!
