Is it bad to make food to bring somewhere, while secretly hoping that nobody likes it (or is even inclined to try it) so you can bring it home and eat it all yourself? I made some crawfish cornbread for enrichment tomorrow and already I can't stop eating it! It'll be amazing if any even makes it there, but if it does, I don't want anyone else to eat it. It's one of my favorite things and I don't have any more crawfish to make more!

Just for fun...

Cajun Crawfish Cornbread

I love your crawfish cornbread recipe. I got it from your mom a while back, and it is scrumptious. Now I want to make some!

That looks really good. I have feelings about being stingy with my food all of the time because I only make what I like so if there are any leftovers I get to feast!

K... I have never heard of this before but will try it soon. I am curious what do you serve it with?
