    @Deejayelle:  Just because someone serves it to me doesn’t mean I gotta eat it.  If something isn’t right, I push the plate away, food poisoning is an experience I would avoid at all costs.

    I would probably do what you did and try to stomach it!

    @Deejayelle:  I’m the pickest eater so I never go to peoples houses for dinner but if I did I would NOT eat something on my plate that I did not like or did not look right regardless of how it makes them feel. Sorry but my stomache is too bad to be dealing with the issues that occur after I ate the food just so I looked polite.

    I am dying to know what kind of egg was on your plate???  I would not have eaten most of what was on the plate.

    I was taught to take a “no thank you” helping and at least a few bites, so I would have eaten some of it.  However, if the food was raw, I would have avoided it.  Who serves egg with pot roast and potato????

    @Deejayelle:  I like to eat anything and everything, so I don’t run into that problem much! If there was an issue with undercooked or suspect food, I would probably move it around on the plate a little to make it look like I ate some, then not eat it. I do like all food, but I don’t think I would do raw potato!

    As a child, my mom made me eat everything on my plate. 

    It is not something I do now, nor do I plan to teach my children.

    Your body, your call. It what you think is good for you and only eat as much as you want!

    I would just eat what I like and leave the rest. Honestly if it was a very close friend or family member I would just be honest and tell them. I’ve had friends tell me their issues – one hates tomatos, one hates any sort of ground beef, one is very picky about chicken and has been known to practically dissect it while eating it to make sure its okay. Eh no biggie. We have a laugh and move on.

    Why did they serve you a raw potato?

    I would eat what I liked, then move everything around and take a couple bites to be nice. Then act full.

    That’s a super random dinner btw.

    I have a friend that makes terrible dinners, TERRIBLE. I go over there for our dinner plans and she literally will go in her kitchen and find whatever is still on the stove from lunch with her kids – ie- crusty spaghettos/etc dried out food, microwave it until it’s cold and luke warm and serve it.

    I’d probably pick around the meal (i.e. just eat the roast), say thank you to the friend, leave early and go home to eat.  Then follow that up with never going over to that friend’s house for dinner again.

    I would probably pick at it…I wouldn’t eat that much of it if I didn’t like it.  Why did they serve you a raw potato?  I wouldn’t eat a raw potato.
