The other day we got a 'order in' menu from a local Chinese restaurant. We do occasionally order a Chinese dinner when the kids come over. It's a treat for me. I get to visit with the grandies and not have to spend a lot of my time in the kitchen. We hadn't used this particular restaurant before so I was interested in seeing what their menu and prices were like.
A little aside now to let you know that in Ontario there is a new law in the works requiring all fast food places and restaurants to post the calorie content on their menus. It isn't law yet but some places have started to comply already. This restaurant has complied ahead of the law.
Let's just say I won't be ordering Chinese food ever again. Most of the dinner combo's provide the consumer with about three days worth of calories. And you know, an hour after you eat a Chinese dinner you want to eat again right? Can you imagine? Oh, and the rest of the items that were more reasonable in calorie count..you guessed it.....we don't really care for those.
I'm a little concerned about what I'm going to see when all the eateries have to comply. I have a feeling I'm going to be in 'calorie shock'.
