My father had an expression "save me cobbs." What it meant was to save the last portion for someone else, but make sure it was a size that would be pleasing. It's a great expression and a great concept. I have not been able to find anybody familiar with it, however. he was Jewish, and its roots may be in the culture of Ashkenazi or eastern european jews of the 17th to 19th century.
