    Word to the wise if you ever live with me or I ever come to see you, label your leftovers otherwise they are liable to go AWOL with me around. I love leftovers and I am known for prowling the refrigerator for anything that remotely resembles such leftovers, I'll take it - heat it...

    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!"...

    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. :)

    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...

    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!

    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...
