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!

What a beautiful little morsel of cake, a great way to end the month, Charlie. Like you I’m eating every crumb on the plate, lol. Can’t wait to see what’s happening in June.
Thanks so much Sharon! 😃💕Good! Never leave a bite or a morsel I say! Lol And I can’t believe it’s June already. Time moves too quick!! 😊
Can we just slow down everything, haha.
If you figure out how… let me know!! 😉Lol
Oh I can’t wait! And….yes, I am an animal as well, I am not going to insult that last bite, no siree!
Excellent my fellow animal!! We shall destroy this cake together!! 😉lol And hope you’ll join in next month! I think I’m getting close to the plan and you can play along easily if so! 😉
I can’t wait to hear about it….I am chomping at the bit! Oh how fun, I’ll be waiting 😉
I really don’t mean to create suspense…it just happens because I don’t decide until the last minute. 😊lol
I love suspense, well, to a point! I will be patient because today is June 1st! lol 😉
Lol… true… you don’t have to wait very long! 😉
Another wonderful month of doodlewash adventure with you Charlie O! I’ll devour that last little bite with you in great anticipation of the next course (err) month.. of fun! 🙂
Thanks so much Jodi! 😃💕 It was super fun to paint food all month, but I’m always sad and glad to move on to something new! Hehe
I’m with you, Charlie, I’m never one to leave a plate of delicious food unfinished. 🙂 So excited to see what next month’s adventure brings!
Excellent, Annie!! 😃💕So happy to hear you’re not a bite leaver!! Hehe! Plan is slowing forming in my mind…I’m excited to see what comes out too! Lol
That morsel of cake looks so good if that were me I would be licking the plate!! hehe 🙂 When it comes to cake eating I have no shame. I am looking forward to seeing what June brings. Thanks again Charlie. xx
Excellent!! Shameless cake eaters of the world unite!! Lol Really, it’s the only way to be when cake is involved! Thanks Susan!! 😃💕
🙂 United!! Lol
I’m stuffed but I cannot leave that last bite of cake… 🎂🍴💕 I enjoyed your stories and doodlewashes this month, Charlie! Can’t wait to see what June brings…!! 😊🎨💕
Thanks so much, Jill! 😃💕 Yeah, if it’s cake, there’s absolutely no way! Hehe…so glad you enjoyed this month! Painting food was fun, but I kept craving naughty things!😊 Lol
I was totally inspired by your food posts… I made my first and then some. And will probably make more… Thank you! 🙂
Aww cool!! 😃💕I saw those!! At least I think I did…you’re Arts on Scratch Paper right? There were like 3 or 4 suddenly?! And they’re awesome! Was hoping you’d tag em #doodlewashdinner …I can still add you to the gallery if you want! 😉
I will sure add the tag… it’s a pleasure to be part of that project! 🙂
Awesome! So happy to hear it!
Can’t wait to see what next month brings, Charlie! What a perfect image to wrap up your month of food. 💜💜💜
Thanks sis! 😃💕Such a fun one, but new adventures are calling me! Actually it’s probably just the A.D.D. but saying it that way makes me sound like a cool explorer! 😎lol
Yes it does! Explore away, Charlieeeee! 💜💜💜. Take us with you!
Would pay to see cake on the end of Charlie’s fingertips. Ha!
Lol…really? It’s such a short show…gone in milliseconds really. 😊
Wonderful sketch of that little bit of cake. Great way to end this adventure. 💞
Thanks so much Teri!! 😃💕It was such a fun ride this month!
I love cake, but I’ve had some really dry store-bought cakes that even the frosting couldn’t save. LOL. I can’t wait to see what you come up with for June!
Wow…yeah…that’s bad, Kari! Haha! Frosting can save anything! I used to have a coworker who used it to get his kids to eat fish! Ingenious really… anytime people on my team needed to be more innovative I just starting asking, “how could we frost the fish?” 😉 hope you’ll join the next adventure! 😃💕
Ok.. frosting on the fish. That’s gross! LOL
I’m with you! I never leave anything on my plate. My mom was very frugal and taught me and my sister to not be wasteful especially with food. At home, I even lick my plate at the end. There. Now you know my dark secret! 😆
May I eat that tasty looking doodlewashed bite you left there? 😉❤️
Hehe…I suppose you can have it, but only if you promise to lick the plate! 😉lol That’s awesome, Teresa! 😃💕Yay you! That’s the only way to roll where food is concerned. Unless the food is actually bad…then it’s okay to walk away I guess. I feel like I should share a dark secret back, but I think they’re already scattered throughout my blog! 😊
LOL! You’re cute, my dear! x
Oh what fun this has been, Charlie! I think I’ve put on a few pounds just reading. Looking forward to seeing what comes next.
Thanks Michael! 😃Yeah… I’m pretty sure I’ve put on real pounds with this month long food obsession! 😊So glad you enjoyed the adventure! Hehe
Leave cake? Oh, no,no, no, he he…….there must be a lot of animals about. Great month Charlie, now excited to discover June’s mysterious theme of challenges to enjoy.
Thanks so much Rebecca! Glad your not a cake leaver behinder! Lol And thrilled you enjoyed this month… a new adventure starts tonight! 😉
What a lovely doodlewash to end a treat filled yummy month of paintings. It’s always such fun reading your posts Charlie – and you have a wonderful way of bringing everyone in on it too. Can’t wait for whats around the corner! ^_^
Aww thanks so much Sissh! 😃💕 Hope I can coax you into joining in June’s adventure. It will be fun! 😉
I got stuck on the last bite…the flavor..is it this or that?! By all means I would NOT leave the last bite, completely wasteful, gulp, wonderful! I love the gallery of images too, so fun to see everyone’s contributions! A beautiful display. Looking forward to June’s adventures.
Thanks Cathe! Yeah… there’s just never a good reason to leave a bite behind, especially when it’s cake!! Lol So happy you enjoyed this month’s fun. Hope I can coax you into joining the adventure in June! 😉
I’m glad to see that no one on WordPress wants to waste any food! At least not of the dessert variety…(K)
Yeah… this was incredibly comforting to hear, Kerfe! 😃Lol But true… it was dessert, so that was a bit of an unfair test!
Charlie, thanks for taking us on this food-filled journey through May. We met some awesome talented friends along the way and can’t wait to see what the new month has in store. Happy June!!
Thanks so much Carol!😃💕 I was thrilled you joined the adventure this month! Can’t believe June is already here… which includes trying to put the final idea together. Guess we’ll just see what comes out tonight! Lol
I was wondering if there’d be a big cake to celebrate the end of the month – I was sort of right! 😉 Very clever. While I am sometimes guilty of leaving bits of food, it’d certainly never occur with cake!
This transition period is always exciting. Looking forward to seeing what’s up for sleeve for June!
Thanks so much Jacob! Yeah… I ate most of the cake already… sorry for that! 😊 And the transition is always a bit interesting… I feel so invested in the month’s adventure and then poof… new one! Lol Always feel like a stumble a bit as I start something new! Hehe
Thanks for this, Charlie, it was fun, and you got me sploshing real paint around which I haven’t done in almost two hundred years! As for leaving food at the end of a meal – I only do it if I can’t squeeze any more in… and I can squeeze quite a lot in, so that’s saying something!
Hehe… I was so thrilled to force you (I mean inspire you!!) to use real paint! Hope you’ll splosh around with me in June as well! 😉
Well, that depends! Of course, I shall see what I can do!
Oh Charlie no last bite would be left! It would be all gone! 😉 ready for the next adventure! <3 😉
Hehe… Yay!! I would be so disappointed if you would leave it! Lol Next adventure begins in less than 3 hours! 😉 Still more than an hour before I can get home to paint something to kick things off!😊 Lol
Delightful painting, makes me want to reach into the computer screen and steal that last tasty morsel…yes, I fully believe that eating cake with the reckless abandon of an animal that appreciates cake…is fun to do…of course in the privacy of one’s home and with the curtains drawn maybe, I would not want people to stare…lol. Thank you for sharing a gallery view of all the wonderful treats brought to your dinner and I look forward to seeing what new and wonderful adventures you have in store for us.
Thanks so much, Haunani! 😃💕 haha…yeah…true animal cake eating is probably best behind closed doors! Lol So glad you enjoyed the adventure this month! It was really a fun one!! Though I think I gained weight in the process. 😊hehe
Funny little habit, isn’t it? My mom taught me to always leave something on my plate. I always chose the parsley! And I’d forgotten all about this ritual till you reminded me, so thank you.
BTW, if you aren’t going to finish that cake….?
Lol… too funny. Awesome move by choosing the parsley. No idea why this was ever considered a good thing though. Pretend there’s parsley on the plate and go ahead and eat this last bite of cake! 😉💕
