that when someone says they were really hungry but too busy to make something to eat, I spend half an hour cooking dinner (that I cannot eat as i'm on a diet) and 15 minutes after I told them it was ready and it's waiting on the plate for them, they still haven't gone to eat it and now it's bloody ruined and stone cold no doubt!

I would leave it there and give it to them for tea, supper, breakfast, tomorrow's dinner... whatever till they either eat it or cook something else

LOL right with you.

When I was on diet, My FIL took to sending these apple struddels round cause he got them on a BOGOFF from iceland. I used to beg DH not to bring them but he would and cook them and the smell would fill the house for hours. Big rows would ensue.

Also it P*S of that somehow, only heaven knows that DH's seem to lose weight also at the same time just by eating our low fat cooking and without cutting out the luxuarys.
