... to someones house, to you take it with you when you leave?

For instance, if you were going over a relatives/friends for dinner and you were in charge of bringing desserts, when you left would you take the pies and/or cakes that you had brought?


It could go for appetizers as well. If you brought a veggie platter (for instance), and there was still some left, would you take it when you left?

I'm not sure what "proper protocol" is?

Whenever i take food somewhere I try to make it in something that I don't have to take home a pan. As far as left over food - We never have to worry about it cause we are always in charge of soda or a DQ Cake

When people come here though they normally leave it and we return the dishes casue they are people we see normally. (and they figure we are to busy to make "real" food so they leave us with leftovers )

It depends. At work we leave it and keep on picking at it till it's gone unless it's a friday

When we go to MILs she always makes us take it home with us. WHen we go to freinds houses we usually leave the left overs there. So it depends on where we are.

Depends what it is. If it is in my dish I will try to give them some leftovers and bring my dish home.

We went to my sister's house left year and took a pie, greenbean casserole, and rolls.
The pie ended up being one of many and didn't get touched so I took it home. I left the greenbean casserole and to this day haven't gotten my casserole dish back.

Whenever I take food anywhere I offer to leave it. If they don't want it, then I take it home.

I guess it just depends...

At Gavin's school I took a pumpkin pie. No one touched it so I brought it home. But at many of the meals my playdate has done I have left food items.
