  • uhhh no, we don't do that. husband and i get even portions and there's always extra if either of us wants more. why would anyone get a best portion anyway? it should either be served evenly or by whoever eats more

  • Kids first then mommy and daddy. Nobody gets a "best".

  • It varies and usually ends up being random but If I made a certain person's favorite then I tend to try to give them the best piece

  • Kids get theirs first then hubby and I get equal portions, if there's some left over whoever is still hungry can go back and get more.

  • Husband.

  • My husband. He eats far more than I do.

    When our son was still living at home, they pretty much tied when it came to portion size. The key was squirreling away enough food for me to eat without one of them getting to it first.. lol

  • My eight year old grandson feels he should take the majority of whatever is there. When we pass things around, he starts to completely heap his plate. I have to remind him to take a serving and pass it on. He literally would take the whole dish. He might or might not eat it all. He tends to want one thing and not eat anything else. It is ongoing training to teach him to be considerate at the dinner table. My son says at his other grandparents, boys are tops and they are given all, while the girls and the rest of the family take what is left. They are from the Phillippines.

  • I get dibbs. We both work full time and I'm the only one that cooks- besides I'm pregnant and that's how he wants it.
