If a Norwegian chef is going to add a zero to one of their order items, at least it is eggs and not the lutefisk.

CSB time. When I was 16 or so, swimming 24 hours a week, my father took a sabbatical to retrain, which meant studying for exams. It also means he was in charge of cooking. In the first few weeks he was slightly unsure of how much to feed me. So when i got home from practice at around 7:30pm one night he had a salad bowl's worth of pasta and marinara sauce made with something like a half pound of ground beef. So I ate it all. It took me something like two hours, but I ate it because it was there. I was also doing things like eating 32oz steaks with baked potato and whatnot when we went out, so maybe he thought I did that on a regular basis. I was 150lbs soaking wet.

I remember spending a summer in high school with the goal of putting over 1000 miles on my bike. I often wouldn't eat lunch, just a big breakfast and an enormous dinner (sometimes I'd skip dinner if other stuff was going on). When school started back up, I was still active, but I was eating a lot more after finally stepping on a scale at the end of the summer and finding my 5'10 frame was down to 115 pounds. In my later Cooking and Nutrition class, there was an assignment where we were supposed to write down everything we ate for a month. I asked the teacher if I could turn it in early with the data from my food journal I kept after I finally started eating regularly again and she said it was fine if I tallied up the calorie count. That took me a solid day of work since no internet back then.

Result: I was taking in about 6000kcal a day and I had gotten up to 135 pounds by that point with my body fat going from 5% to 9%. Twenty pounds in three months isn't all that much at that intake level so it definitely says something about my activity level and metabolism at the time.

Gotta have fuel for the furnace.

I can help them out with their dilemma.

I know a guy that has all the Egyptian Cotton   in the region and another guy that has the corner on chocolate so, I'm sure we could work a few trade deals and welcome Norway as the newest member of  the M&M syndicate.

I suggest the chef get the pastry crew on overtime making poundcakes & angel food cakes.

You can't use them for pelvic floor muscle strengthening either.  Well, maybe for the weakest ones.

Chefs, what do you mean chef"S"?  Did they pass the phone around while ordering. It was one guy. Probably Anders.

Yes, its the "omelette" scene at the end.

It was done in one continuous shot (like the Copacabana scene in Goodfella's) One omlette, start to finish. No words are spoken. No music is played.

The story is about a failing restaurant that needs to make a big meal for an important guest. At the end of the movie, the owners make an omelette, signifying that its the 1st thing a chef learns how to cook well.

I didn't want to spoil the movie for everyone...but that's the jist...

If they can manage to find anyone around who is interested in high protein food, they might not have to take a loss.

This little 'mistake' has disqualified them from the Olympic Easter egg hunt.

Meanwhile the French team only needs a single egg, because it is un oeuf for them.

Stuff them inside some rotting fish and it's a Norwegian delicacy.
