Why are portion sizes so large? Transterrestrial Musings expounds on the economics and explains why running a fast food business has a lot in common with launching a space shuttle.
I don’t mind large portion sizes because, like many of the commenters, my wife and I almost always get doggie bags (well, styrofoam boxes) when we eat out. Last night’s dinner is usually tomorrow’s lunch.
I’ve been to the Library of Congress web site many times but I never noticed this cool recipe section: Immigrations – The great American Potluck. Lots of traditional recipes contributed by immigrants from all around the world. (seen here)

I’m not sure exactly how it happened, since I’m making this all up, but back in 1953 there was apparently a sudden massive surplus of Seven-Up. Maybe they discovered a lost cache of soda in a hidden storage room deep beneath 7-Up Castle. Maybe a Coca-Cola double agent sabotaged the books. Whatever happened, it left the company with far more 7-Up than anyone could possibly drink.
Something had be done. The answer? Cooking with Seven-up! James Lileks has all the distubing, fizzy, all-family details.
