So I've really cut back on my portion sizes at meals over the past several weeks. As a result, it does not take much to make me full. Yet, as soon as that digests, I'm hungry again. I tend to like a small snack around 3pm. At work, I've got a jar of unsalted peanuts and some banana chips in a drawer for these occasions. This snack craving came over me just now and I remembered that I've got a can of boiled peanuts (yes a CAN) in my pantry that I've been saving for just such an occasion. As I swing open the pantry door, I notice that the can is gone! GONE! Glancing in the trash, I see the empty, discarded can of salty, savory boiled peanuts. I hurry back to LOML's* office and ask if he indeed ate 'my' peanuts. He confesses and apologizes. Now, I'm stuck with this craving and a sense of resentment toward my wonderful husband.
How do other couples handle sharing food? I have NO problem sharing most foods with my husband. Yet, the problem is: I get so upset when he eats the last or all of certain foods before I even get any. This is only true of foods that I buy or have in the house because they are my 'favorites'. Other foods that are his favorites do not cause me this grief. However, when we both like them (and he tends to like many of my favorites), they are often gone before I get any. Many times I am saving an item or have been looking forward to it. I feel like a big baby being upset because he ate something he likes too. Do other couples have this same problem? Does anyone else feel this way? Am I really this selfish? I need feedback!
