      Last week we read that 40% of our food is wasted. This week we read someone encouraging waste! Why not cut a slice of pie in half (or less) if you don't plan to eat it? Leave the rest for the next person, or for tomorrow. "You don't need to clean your plate"... if you have a hungry dog who subsists on table scraps, a rare animal in most households. The original Thanksgiving was about having enough food, after a starvation winter. I doubt they considered it an occasion for waste. The author should be ashamed... or live on short rations long enough to appreciate food.
