And so another Doodlewash Adventure comes to a close in May as we bid farewell to a scrumptious month of food and drinks. Thanks again to all the fabulous guests who joined me for the #DoodlewashDinner party with your beautiful doodlewashes! It’s always a bit sad when a delicious dinner ends and there’s just that last little bite before it all becomes a wonderful memory. If you haven’t checked out the feature gallery yet to see all the incredible art people brought to the gathering, then by all means stop listening to my ramblings and click here to go see it!
You may be one of those people who leave that last little bite on the plate. This is something I’ve never personally understood. If you’re that close to finishing something, then why quit? Though I know this bizarre habit is usually only done in a public setting. It’s often a way to proclaim to everyone around you, “See? I’m not an animal. I simply can’t devour that much food” while heading home to snack on something and dream of the bite you left behind. This is not something I would ever do.
Nope, when faced with this last little bite of cake at the end of the party, I will not only devour it, I will use my finger to get every little crumb. I am an animal and proud of it. In my opinion, wasting perfectly good cake would be the true offense. And if that means eating it all up with the reckless abandon of a starving raccoon, then so be it. I pretty much lose all shame when cake is involved. But, I hope you’ve enjoyed all the food and stories this month. And I hope you’ll all join me tomorrow and throughout the month of June as we begin a brand new adventure! As always, you’ll be invited to join along, so stay tuned!
