It's The Thought That Counts, But I Didn't Eat It!
Sunday, January 22, 2012
What a thoughtful husband I have! He went to a fundraiser this afternoon that took place at a local Chinese Restaurant, and they had a buffet set up. Since I didn't go to the meeting with him, he was so thoughtful & brought me home a small container of food. He handed it to me and said "I'm not sure whether you can eat this or not, but I wanted to bring you something".
Well, upon opening the container, I saw it had General Tso's chicken, fried rice and some brocolli. I literally took one teensy tiny piece of the chicken to "taste test" it, then determined that I couldn't and wouldn't eat it...too greasy. I put the container in the fridge, told my hubby that since I didn't want to waste it, maybe he could take it to work for lunch tomorrow. Well, he won't eat it, 'cause it has brocolli in it (LOL), so I guess it's going into the garbage can!
I really hate to waste it, but I'm not going to let it mess up my healthy eating. In the past, I would have most likely told myself I could have the Chinese food & the mentality of "tomorrow is another day". My husband wasn't offended that I couldn't eat the food...it is the thought that counts.
