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...
