Invited a friend over for dinner tonight and after i spend a lot of time making it she says she doesnt eat much and said she would take a doggie bag ,so she filled two large containers from the pot and after an hour of chit chat off she goes with several days worth of food. Am i wrong to think this was rude behaviour?

If Iím giving somebody leftovers of my cooking, Iíve learned that I should fill the container, not them.

At least you know your friend likes your cooking...

Seems kind of rude. Why did you give her two containers rather than one? I agree with the above advice that you should be the one to fill the container next time lol.

She asked to take a doggie bag ,i had no idea that her definition of a doggie bag was all the remaing food on her plate as well as the remaining beef Stroganoff in the pot which turned out to be 2 tupperware containers. as she comes over every Monday to go swimming with my wife i'll make substantially smaller meals in the future.

Not rude to ask for a doggie bag for anything she couldn't finish on her plate at all. I'm the same way, I can't eat mountains of food all at once.

But it was presumptuous for her to help herself to more from the pot. What if you were planning on having leftovers? Tbh I'd probably have stopped her and said I made a lot intentionally in order to have leftovers for the week.

It was rude to put more on her plate than she could eat, too.

The other alternative is to make what you normally would and put some away before she arrives, so there are no leftovers after the meal is served.

Unless it is a buffet/make your own sandwich. Where did all the bread, meat and cheese go?
