Leftovers–Stomach or trash?

half eaten cake

I spent 33 years of my life never wanting to “waste” food until this question came to me while staring at the most delicious leftover birthday cake.  Is the left over birthday cake better in my stomach or the trash?  Is eating it really NOT wasting it?  Wow….can we say epiphany?  Birthday’s, parties, special events, and the like are wonderful celebrations and usually come with wonderful food that is terrific on occasion but not for 3 to 4 days following the event.  Here’s my new rules for parties and any time “treats” land themselves in my kitchen.  If baking your all time favorite dessert is going to cause you undue stress and over consumption “DON’T MAKE IT”  try making something you can’t sample before you even get to the party, such as cookies and bars.  Whatever you do don’t bring home leftovers and if the event is at your house give it away to those wonderfully skinny people who don’t have to worry about itSmile with tongue out  Then if you still end up with leftovers you have three options.  #1 Let you and your family consume unhealthy amounts of sugar and fat for the next couple days, #2 Freeze it in tiny portions for a later time when you need something sweet and rather then baking an entire bach of something that little frozen cookie might just hit the spot.  #3 Throw it away – easier said then done but try it it’s soooo empowering!!!  Tell me what your tricks are?

    Hi, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Opera, itt looks fine but when opening in
    Internet Explorer, iit has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, terrific blog!
