Too Much Food

I've been resisting the fries at Five Guys because there's always more than I can eat in a small (they insist on calling it Medium, but they don't have a smaller one) order. I sprung for them today and my burger was in the bottom of the bag and the rest of the bag was filled to the brim with fries. I was stuffed and still pitched about 2/3 of the batch. I've tried a couple of "things to do at home with left over French Fries" and haven't been impressed enough to take the leftovers home.

Yesterday I was in Vienna for lunch, so I treated myself to one scoop of Nielsen's frozen custard. That, for me was about two and a half portions (but it was soooooo good I finished it anyway). Three and a half bucks, too.

Is there anything we can do to get smaller portions for these "sides?" I've written to Five Guys more than once and the answer is always the same - "We want to give our customers good value." No wonder I see so many fat people there. <G>

At least I can get a kid's size ice at Rita's. Maybe they should offer a "senior" size?
