Just because I cooked it-

Saturday, February 02, 2013

Doesn't mean I have to eat it. And I'm not saying that because I made something I don't like. I did make one dish I can't stand, but everything else I made I like.

But as my status says (or said) I cooked expecting my teen son and his friend to be back for dinner. (I LIKE this friend. He is a very responsible, polite young man) So, I thawed ground beef for meatloaf, made cheesy scalloped potatoes (I HATE cheese in potatoes, can't stand it in eggs, either), my grandma's sweet corn casserole, homemade buttermilk biscuits (yes, from scratch) and planned on just heating green beans. Half-way through my cooking, they called to say they had already had dinner with another friend (one I'm not nearly as fond of). So now I have all this food in various stages of preparation, and when it is done, I'm sure not eating it! Not all of it!

I have my portions planned, I made a few extra-small biscuits that would fit in my calorie allotment, and I know exactly how much corn casserole and meatloaf I can have. And green beans are almost a freebie. And I wouldn't touch the cheesy potatoes if I DID have the calories to spare!

I wonder if I can get them to eat leftovers tomorrow for lunch...

    Good for you for choosing what you will eat and what you don't. If I go to a restaurant and don't like something I leave it. Sometimes it is too salty and I definitely leave it.

    Wow, you really are feeling more ambitious if your doing all that cooking! Good for you. I remember when my son was a teenager he used to do things like that, too. Fortunately, he would eat the leftovers. Dinner sounds delicious. Wish I was there!

    No doubt in my mind those leftovers will be snarfed down by your son and his friends! That meal sounded wonderful. Great job sticking to your food program and the allotted portions.
