So I would say, if you've left it out overnight or for a sufficient time after having offered it, consider the offering having been accepted/enjoyed. Besides this you need to depend on your intuition, when you feel the offering is done then you should dispose of/re-purpose it.
You can even share in that offering by eating of it yourself, which is a fun bonding experience (although sometimes the energy shift may make the offering inedible, and of course if it's been left out tooooo long..best to just respectfully dispose of it).
I would determine based on your dream that the offering has likely been accepted and enjoyed already!
Ah thank you for telling me all of that it clear the question I have been having for quite some time
