    @pinkshoes:  hehehehe that sounds like a clueless guy thing to say. A pie or wine sounds like a great thing to bring!

    @pinkshoes:  Well how would he feel about being served a half eaten dinner?  Actually, don’t ask that.  If I asked my Fiance something like that he’d probably say, “I love leftovers!”  Just tell your man you need to bring something else, guys are clueless.

    Hahaha.  That’s actually pretty funny!  But definitely get or make a new dessert, or a nice bottle of wine!

    LOL. That’s cute in a guy kind of way. But no, you can’t bring half-eaten food to a dinner. I’m even hesitant to bring cupcakes/cookies that aren’t in the bakery box, still sealed with the sticker, but that’s probably overboard.

    Can’t vote as the formatting on the screen is being wonky for me, but

    NO YOU CAN’T TAKE A HALF EATEN ANYTHING!

    I know this is frustrating for you, but that amused me greatly. Boys just don’t get it sometimes. 🙂 You are not crazy–you CANNOT take a half eaten thing to anyone!!! It would be better to take nothing at all.

    Haha, that is hilarious.  If it’s a super informal occasion with friends you see all the time, you could get away with it.  But definitely not when you’re going over to dinner at friends’ you haven’t seen in a year.

    Oh men, so clueless and cute.

    This is so funny!  That is totally something Darling Husband would say and be serious and kind of grumpy about 🙂  It is like, “No, you just can’t!”

    @pinkshoes: Is this an actual “cake” or is it just one of those big giant cookie things? If it’s just a giant cookie, then call me crazy, but I think it would be ok to cut it up into ‘bars’ and then put them on a different plate and then take it like that! 🙂

    If there was some sort of design on there then that would be a little trickier. Haha. Then leave that bad boy at home.
