The other day I had dinner guests, and I made the Tuna Noodleriffic. I told my guests what I would be serving, and they brought food, too.
My first guest arrived and said she didn’t eat tuna.
My second guest arrived and said she didn’t eat noodles.
My third guest arrived and had been so stressed that she wasn’t eating anything.
Thankfully, my fourth guest and I ate, as well as the Things. And the Things were happy there were ton of leftovers.
I know that if I’m invited somewhere and I don’t like the entree being served, I’d probably keep my mouth shut, too. But MAN I wish they would have told me. I could have made something else. At least for the ladies were were eating.
Today at work we had a Cinco de Mayo Pot Luck to raise money for the March of Dimes. I made cornbread, and everyone loved it. And asked for the recipe.
Yeah. I made it from a mix. But at least they liked it!
So, what do you do? Do you keep it to yourself if you don’t like something? Bring a dish you do like so you know there’ll be something for you to eat? Pretend to eat and move the food around on your plate?
