Yesterday was "Eat an Animal for PETA Day", and, as promised, I went out of my way to consume animal products. For lunch, my mother and I ate at McDonald's (mmmm, corporate beef), and dinner was a 20 oz. Porterhouse Steak (for me) and a 16 oz. cut of Prime Rib (for her) at the Outback Steakhouse (more corporate beef). Of course, we had lots of butter on our baked potatoes. I was too full for dessert, but there were a number of ice cream dishes that looked pretty tasty had I been able to continue.

As a side note, we both discovered last night that it is hard to get a table at a restaurant in Sebring on a Saturday night during race week. (For those who are not familiar with the sport, Sebring hosts the Twelve Hours of Sebring, a Formula One/American Le Mans seies race. This is not NASCAR; this is what A J Foyt and Mario Andretti drove.) We had a 70 minute wait for a table, in a town that has (nominally) less than 10000 people. It was a zoo last night, however, and most of the patrons were from out of town.
