You are three quarters of the way through a pizza. You have two mouthfuls of appetite left.
Do you go for the middle or the crust?
If you don't eat pizza - no problem, I'm not over keen either. Think carbs v other.

    I go for the middle because I know that my OH will be guaranteed to eat the crust rather than see it thrown out for the birds.

    He is so incapable of throwing food away that I have actually seen him taking stale cheese out of the box we keep for bird food and eating it. 

    It comes from a deprived childhood.😊

    Have you explained to him that his body is not a dustbin? @pansyface

    Is it really a question? There was a time when I wasn't able to eat a whole pizza in a restaurant/pizzeria and was too shy to ask to have 1 or 2 pieces packed. So I ate only the middle and left the crust. It's there for technical reasons only, isn't it?

    We eat pizza maybe once a year and in a local restaurant that sells them by size so no leftovers, even for me, and I tend to go for a savoury galette anyway.

    B3, he has a cousin who insists on not throwing out bread. At all. His wife gave up trying years ago and now accepts that he will happily sit down to a plate of blue bread. Really.  The effects of living through WWII go on to this day.

    At least we don’t have our own home-grown penicillin factory in the kitchen.😁

    Mine is exactly the same!  Can’t leave anything, he was born on a small struggling farm, last one of 5 children so everything had to go 7 ways.

    Neither.  If I had only two mouthfuls of appetite left, I'd save them for a pudding.

    It depends ... if it’s one of my really thin really crisply baked sourdough pizzas like the one we’ve just had ...I’ll take my time, pour another glass of wine and eat it all ... slowly 😋

    We weren't rich by any means. We weren't posh enough for a fruit bowl but we never went without food. I have three brothers. Any goodies available, you ate immediately or someone else would have them. My husband was one of two. He leaves the best on his plate til last. He was absolutely gobsmacked when I  nicked the saved sausage off the side of his plate. "I thought you didn't want it" I said straight faced.
    It's so sad that childhood deprivation still haunts people into comfortable adulthood.
