Well it used to be Chinese food until we hit this town. No good Chinese to be found for hundreds of miles here. So we are stuck with Pizza.

Thanksgiving Dinner.

I eat it, get full, then fall asleep.

I have yet to see a football game live, on that day.

I get full on either Chinese food or Pizza.

They both fill me up, but I prefer good Chinese food. Yummy! I haven’t had any in so long… (makes the Boy sick). I really need to run away to Chinatown for a meal soon.

Both, pizza makes me feel ‘heavier’ tho. I love Chinese food…but pizza fills me up faster I think.

Pizza does the trick unless it’s the bad (greasy-Americanized) Chinese food. That stuff sits like a brick. Good, fresh Chinese food isn’t that filling (especially the steamed stuff).

So, Pizza it is!
now where is it? did you order it for me? oh, there the doorbell….

I love chinese food, and here in michigan you can find all kinds of all you can eat ones, so I will say chinese food and that old saying, you can eat chinese food and an hour later you are hungry again, well that doesn’t happen to me lol

Pizza. I can eat quite a bit of Chinese before I start to feel like I’m going to pop… but after 3 slices of pizza I feel like my stomach is splitting open.

Dee can’t have pizza. Dee loves Chinese food, which is a good thing, otherwise, her Chinese mother would probably have something to say about that.

Chinese, because we usually order so many different things that if you have only ONE of each, you’re STILL done for.

in chicago, we have deep-dish pizza. it is much more filling, in my opinion, than any casual weekend-type meal.

I know. I’m drooling…

I’d rather eat chinese anyway.

I prefer chinese food over pizza, but even if im completely full from chinese about 20 minutes later im hungry again. So id have to go with Pizza being more filling.

How about Chinese pizza?

@loser: I’m not sure if Papa John’s still has it, because I haven’t been near one in years… they used to make a barbecue chicken pizza that used the barbecue sauce instead of tomato, cheese, onion, chicken, and pineapple. It tasted like Chinese food.

i like chinese food better because there’s more variety – eggrolls, soup, etc. i don’t think of pizza as a meal, either.

@ica that is why I like it as well
