How big should my wiener be? (get your minds out of the gutter...)
Like a typical parent I face interesting and new situations each day.

Today, it was Oscar Meyer wieners.

My daughter had a bowl of green bean casserole. She is not fond of pork chops (which I also made) and so I waited until she was done with the GBC. She said she was still hungry so I broke out that old standby, the bun length wiener.

Here was my thought. She is 5. I am 41. She is about 38 inches tall, I am 68" tall - close enough for 2x the size.

So I wondered how many she would eat, and how many I would have to eat before becoming full.

She ate 2 of them, at 2 oz's each, for a total of 4 oz's.

So I am left with this: I need an 8 oz (1/2 lb) hot dog to fill me up and a bowl of GBC.

How big should a wiener be to fill you up?? Ever try the 1 LB ones like in Vegas? Too much for me - but maybe just right for you....

1. It's not the size that matters. It's how it's used.
:P

2. Doogies, in Newington CT has two-footers. That should be enough
for anyone.

Damn, when I see one it makes me wish I was young again, and able to ingest 2,000 calories in a sitting. Can't do it anymore.

3. Reminds me of that 72 oz Steak in Amarillo you can get for free
If you eat it within an hour (long with the 1 lb baked potato and salad). The Big Texan the place is called (good food there BTW).

The only thing I can take that is 72oz in an hour would be a beer :)

4. I just read about that place again recently. That's about enough to make you go
vegetarian, to eat that much beef, isn't it?

72 ounces of beer is only half a gallon...easy to do that in an hour. But steak? Yuck.

5. I'm trying to figure out how a five year old ate two of them
That's a lot!

I can't answer your question... I probably have one hotdog a year

7. Don't forget 5 y.o. are more active than adults, they are growing as well
If she is bouncing around like a normal kid I wouldn't worry. She'll burn off any excess.
