I am a really slow eater. It is why I hate to eat out at restaurants. While I am just getting to my third bite, the rest are out on the sidewalk yelling "Taxi!" I am always bringing home a doggie bag.

I do get overwhelmed when there is too much food on my plate. The only times I do remember not bringing home a doggie bag were the two times I ate at Spago's in California. I managed to finish the two crab cakes I ordered. They were more than enough. I passed on the salad.

Mrs. K says I'm "putzy" when I eat. She's probably right.

I eat very slowly no matter what or where. Prefer my food served scald-you-hot so that it's still warm when I get to my last bite. I just blow on forkfuls when I first start.

True fact: DH and I were at King's Arm Tavern in Williamsburg. He was just about finished with his meal, mine was not quite half gone. Our server (who was not rushing us) asked if I would like my remaining portion wrapped. Said to him "no, I'm just a slow eater". DH's head was bobbing like one of those old dog statues people would put on the dashboard of their car! Fill up fast, get hungry fast - what can I say?

He is probably ready for middle school soon!

I eat much too fast, and Hubby eats really slow. Sometimes I will start eating and then get up to get a drink or a napkin or something and return so that I have a little break in the middle, and so that I am more at pace with him.

Breakfast and lunch are frenzied.

At breakfast I'm rushing to get to work.

At lunch I usually eat while I'm working or stop just long enough to gobble.

I spend most of my days off in my shop so its the same. I hate to stop what I'm doing in order to eat.

Dinners are leisurely. That's usually when I begin to wind down.
