Yup that is true. You get very generous portions here in Texas. You won’t leave hungry.

Being a vegetarian in Texas is easy. Plenty of vegetables with whatever meat is being cooked.

Of course there is a good chance some of those "sides" are cooked with meat for flavor...
beans with pork, corn with pork, potatoes with bacon, greens with ham hock... even bacon in salads.

That's Texas. Stick to the fried okra and cornbread (latter, likely has bits of chilis)

Haha timely thread! I just started a big pot of pinto beans that I learned how to cook when I was stationed in Del Rio over 40 years ago. That'll get served with corn bread tonight. Wish I took the time recently to make a supply of good sausage, but johnsonville brats will have to do.

Aren't tobacco products considered a side veggie? Or is that SC?

Its not how much you eat at a sitting, its how often you eat.

Besides, half of the stuff in those containers looks like condiments to me.

Those are called "side dishes..." Everything from beans, to peppers to mashed potatoes, and cole slaw. The lemons are "condiments."

And yes, it's how often you eat... which is why I said, "a few more meals like that..." and then wash it down with soda or "sweet tea."

No doubt all tasty stuff... but not "low cal" in any way.

If the fired okra wasn't coated in a light egg wash/corn meal and cooked in lard it wasn't worth the effort. That's sort of a two strike to them vegi folks, ain't it?

Client in Houston took me out to dinner at a steak house buffet kind of place... I told the waitress I was vegetarian and it turned out she was also so she took me around and showed me all the acceptable stuff. Client was a little embarrassed but I was happy. I felt so skinny in Houston, I wanted to do selfies with the locals; at the time it was the fattest city in USA.

I don't think Houston got any skinnier, I think El Paso and McAllen just upped their game.

Where the heck does she "put it?" I could not eat that much food any time in my life. Even doing 50+ miles of cycling a day.

Best I ever did was to pull into a Pizza Hut in AZ while I doing a long distance tour... I ordered a large pizza and a salad. Waitress asked if I "wanted to wait for the rest of my party..."

I said, "no, I'm all here."

I waddled out and rode my bike (slowly) onto a campground, several miles away.

But that GustoBurrito... and her... OMG. Where did it go???

Yeah, she's a pro, or are they called competitive eaters now. She was just in the news for eating that ten pound burrito. I believe you can stretch your stomach to accommodate the volume.
Way back in the day It was nothing to eat a 32 oz steak with all the trimmings if well prepared. I once tried one of those monster hamburger challenges but quickly realized the thing really tasted pretty nasty and didn't even eat much of it.
Tonight's supper will consist of a cup of basmati rice and some steamed broccoli for two. I weigh a heck of a lot less now..

Nah, those are probably cooked with lard, too...

On the contrary... I think one's bottom would become very apparent (especially in a bikini).

That reminds me of the time I was on vacation and we decided to stop at this little hole-in-the-wall bar, kind of rural-ish area. It was the sort of place where I was prepared for them to look at me funny as soon as the word "vegetarian" came out of my mouth, so I knew this was going to be another "I'll just have fries" kind of situation.

Well, I can make do most places; it's usually the other people I'm with who want to make a big deal out of how I eat. So, inevitably, my partner's mom has to ask The Question: "She's a vegetarian. Do you have anything she can eat?"

.........And the waitress says, "yeah! We have a regular who's vegetarian and brings in his own veggie burgers, and he says anyone who needs one can have one." I just about fell off my chair.

And to this day I regret that I didn't slip the waitress a few bucks and tell her to buy that guy a beer from me next time he came in. (It was one of those things where I was waffling between "would that be cool, or weird?" and just wasn't sure.)

I suspect some of these champion eaters probably bring it all back up right after...

Isn't she the one that won the woman's division at the July 4 Nathan's Hot Dog contest in NY/NJ this year? Something like 40 hot dogs in 10 minutes?
