    I Do

    I hate wasting food... So i always have left overs waiting for me in the fridge, which is great, cause i always have a yummy meal i can prepare in just a minute. And it tastes good. Funny thing... I don't actually like pizza much at all, except for when it's left overs...

    It's Become a Goal

    I added this as a goal because, up until recently I did love leftovers. But two nights ago something happened that completely changed my mind about them. I was sitting in the living room with my dad just watching TV. A break came on and I looked around the room, just randomly...

    Free Lunch

    The economists say, "there is no such thing as free lunch," because it always cost you something to get the "free lunch." But think of it this way -- when you buy the food, it only counts once against your budget. Anything that is leftover and eaten at another meal is technically...

    For a Bunch of Reasons

    Leftovers are so good, because they are so easy.  Warm them up and you are ready to go.  You are not wasting food and that is so important because I guess I hate to waste anything and if you can get a second or third meal out of something cool.  I also like using...

    Mmm Mmm Mmm

    I do like me some leftovers. When I make dinner, I always make way more than I need so that I have leftovers. Saves me from cooking the next day. :)

    I Do

    As George Carlin once said they make you feel good twice! First when you put them away you think to yourself "I'm saving food!" and then a month later when it is turning green and has hair growing out of it and you throw it away you think "I'm saving my life!"...

    Better The Next Day

    I think most foods are better the next day- especially pizza and spaghetti and most casseroles. My roommate will not TOUCH leftovers. More for me!

    Warm Ups!

    I call them warm ups but you can call them reruns or reheats also. Leftover sounds so unwanted!

    My roommate always saved leftovers

    and then let them rot in Tupperware and glass containers. She would throw away the Tupperware ones eventually but had to wash the glass ones. I caca'd in one of the glass ones once and she didn't notice for a month. When she finally scrubbed it, the house stunk all day. The...

    I love it, it's so manly! I like cuddling with a man with his top off, so I can run my fingers slowly through his chest hair, and tug it slightly.
