Last night was our office Christmas dinner. I was determined to take food home this year instead of stuffing myself like I did last year. I helped myself to the pre-dinner rolls, drank 2 drinks and pillaged the appetizers freely. When it was time to order dinner I wasn't even hungry. I ordered the filet mignon and ate the vegetables, nibbled the potatoes and carved only 4 bites off of the steak. The rest went in to a take home box. Of course, everyone noticed that I was taking home most of my meal and joked that I would be eating it for the entire week. I think I should eat it all week just to amuse them.
When the waitress asked if anyone wanted dessert most people said no but then someone said yes and half of the people (including myself) decided to have dessert too. I had a bit of a childhood flashback because I didn't finish my dinner before having dessert but I got dessert anyway (I know, I'm such a rule breaker!). I ate a third and scooted the rest of it in to my box.
Now I have 2 servings of potatoes, 2 servings of cheesecake and 5 servings of beef. If I add my own vegetables and bread, tortillas or potatoes, I can eat my Office Christmas Dinner all week long!
