Throwing good food into the trash can
Today my church held its Christmas fellowship in an all-you-can eat buffet restaurant. The great thing about that kind of establishment is that you get to sample a lot of different dishes that you may not normally eat. And that's exactly what I did. So, on my plate there was fried chicken, baked chicken, and ribs. I loved the ribs and the fried chicken, but didn't care for the flavor of the baked chicken. So, I didn't eat much of it.
For dessert I was looking forward with anticipation to the peach cobbler. But for me, a cobbler that doesn't taste buttery is practically inedible. And that turned out to be the case with their cobbler. So, after tasting a little of it, I pushed it to the side and didn't eat it.
But here's my problem. All that food I didn't eat ended up in the trash can. You are not allowed to take any food away from the restaurant, so all they can do with food that a diner puts on his plate but doesn't eat is throw it away.
I expected to eat everything I put on my plate, but it didn't turn out that way. And with all that perfectly good food going to waste, I'm feeling a bit guilty.
