Is he somebody that generally does not like waste? How annoying, it seems that he makes it your fault because you do not want his leftovers.

I would tell him to plate up his own food, what ever he serves himself is his.

I would also talk to him about it when he is not eating, like you do with children, telling him what you expect of him and how much it annoys you.

My husband always wants to share whatever he’s eating to the point of us rowing over it! It’s almost like he’s ashamed to be eating and wants to give some away - not only to me but anyone who happens to be with him at the time. He just asked me if I wanted one of the hard boiled eggs I cooked yesterday as I had eaten mine but I said no thanks. He said you might want it later. I said I didn’t know. He got really annoyed and said he was trying to help and I was being difficult! How many times do I have to tell him. He does have mental health issues but camels back and straw come to mind! Just needed to vent sorry.
