    Default The Joy of Leftovers!!!

    Last weekend was my grand-daughter's 1st birthday. My daughter-in-law and other grand-daughter came up from NC to stay with us and go to the celebration. Well we came home from the party with the leftover cake, yum! We also brought home the leftover tortilla chips. My hubby and I just had some of them for a snack. They gave us the fresh veggies and dip. We had them the next day with dinner. I even used the leftover dip as a spread on sandwiches. We also brought home a bread bowl with spinach/artichoke dip in it. I warmed it up in the oven that evening for a snack while everyone was here. Then I warmed it again and used it up as a side for 2 meals. We had a small deer roast that I cooked in the pressure cooker for dinner last night, we finished that tonight. While my company was here the rest of the kids came over for dinner. I had a 4 1/2lb chicken and I made rolled out dumplings. We fed 8 that night. Then we finished it up in to next 2 meals. It is so cool how far you can make a meal go. I guess you can tell, we like leftovers!

    I don't know about anyone else, but to me, most foods just seem to taste better the second time around. Maybe it's because it makes me feel frugal, or the fact that I don't have to cook, LOL, maybe it's both, but we love letovers here too. Boy, you made out good with all the goodies you brought home after the party. WTG!

    Yep I love leftovers too. I tend to keep the leftovers for the times when DH is working nights so I don't have to cook just for me and DD, she doesn't eat much so its easier to reheat then cook fully.

    ~That's why I love leftovers. It *almost* feels like someone else did the cooking!~

    I love 'em too! Leftovers are nearly always my lunch at work the next day!

    That's why I enjoy my own birthday so much. I always make sure I buy/make things that will keep for a few days in the fridge. This way, I can have special lunches and dinners for a long time!

    I never understood people who either didn't like or felt it was "beneath them" to eat leftovers. It's just reheated food! *shakes head* You know what I like 2nd day? Kraft Dinner! I LOVE it on Day 2. loves homemade stew on day 2.

    We plan on eating leftover over the Christmas/New Year period. I am going to roast a heap of meats (pork plain and seasoned, turkey rolls, chickens, beef) and make a platter for Christmas lunch and dinner. Then we will eat the leftovers ove the next week with salads and potato bakes etc. It will be great to have the time off cooking. However, I know I will be itching to get back to real cooking afterwards.
