Abu 'Ubayd (may Allah be pleased with him) says:
"I cooked a pot (food) for Messenger of Allah ﷺ. Because Messenger of Allah ﷺ loved the dhiraa (forequarter of a goat or sheep) a lot, I served him that portion. He then ordered another one, I served the ,second one. He then ordered one again. I replied: 'Ya Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) the goat has only two dhiraa'. Messenger of Allah ﷺ then said: 'I swear an oath by the Name of that Being in whose hands is my life, if you kept quiet, you could have served me every time I requested one'".
حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ بَشَّارٍ، قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنَا مُسْلِمُ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ، قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنَا أَبَانُ بْنُ يَزِيدَ، عَنْ قَتَادَةَ، عَنْ شَهْرِ بْنِ حَوْشَبٍ، عَنْ أَبِي عُبَيْدَةَ، قَالَ‏:‏ طَبَخْتُ لِلنَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم، قِدْرًا، وَقَدْ كَانَ يُعْجِبُهُ الذِّرَاعُ، فَنَاوَلْتُهُ الذِّرَاعَ، ثُمَّ قَالَ‏:‏ نَاوِلْنِي الذِّرَاعَ، فَنَاوَلْتُهُ، ثُمَّ قَالَ‏:‏ نَاوِلْنِي الذِّرَاعَ، فَقُلْتُ‏:‏ يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ، وَكَمْ لِلشَّاةِ مِنْ ذِرَاعٍ، فَقَالَ‏:‏ وَالَّذِي نَفْسِي بِيَدِهِ لَوْ سَكَتَّ لَنَاوَلْتَنِي الذِّرَاعَ مَا دَعَوْتُ‏.‏
