How Dare You Have Leftovers
Sep. 23, 2014
As you know, my niece Denise is staying with me for a few months. We were chatting about our family the other day and she mentioned that she had recently been over to my parents house a barbeque. She went on to say that it was an awesome dinner and there was sooo much food! At this point I had to tell her to shut up! There was absolutely NO WAY there was a meal at my parents house that had too much food! I explained to my niece that I had grown up with just exactly the perfect about of food for each person with zero leftovers. Not even at Christmas! It was a huge pet peeve of mine. My niece laughed and told me that every time her family goes over to my mum's, they pack snacks and chips and stuff because they always leave hungry. In fact, she told me that most times after a dinner at my parent's, they hit up the MacDonald's drive through on the way home! I thought that was hilarious! But on the other hand, I started to get annoyed. Why the hell are they just now starting to prepare lavish meals with lots to chose from and excess amounts of it?!?! And not even for me when I visit!!! WTF Mum!?!
