Apparently they Really meant a Sampler for 4....

Another late night at the office, so we (My 1 colleague and I) decided the Client gets to buy us dinner (it's kind of a rule in my business). Not many places deliver around my office at night. Pretty Silly. But the Chop House restaurant is just next door and you can do pick up. And they have a menu online. Yum.

We didn't want "dinner." We needed something that "travels well." So we started with the spinach and artichoke dip. Then we got the "Chop Appetizer Sampler [for 4]." But this was dinner, so we figured appetizers for 4 = dinner for 2. My colleague is a verrrry tall young man who gets to eat a lot of calories every day because of his sheer size. I hate him. [jk]

And we walked out of the restaurant with 2 large shopping bags of food. 2. Large. Like Department Store Large handle bags large.

WTF? "Appetizer sampler" 4 Shrimp, 4 chicken fingers, a whole plate of calamari, 4 giantic onion rings, giant portobella mushroom, marinated peppers, a serving of corn bread. Oh and the dip, too.

I think I gained 5 pounds tonight. So much for my 10 minute training...yeah that's not going so well this week.

I always read these type of posts when it's past my allowable snack hour. It sounds delish.

Aye, yi, yi..I can't think about food right now, especially shrimp. I tossed up my shrimp last night, and I'm still not over it. However, normally, it would sound delish.
