    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...

    Warm Ups!

    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!"...

    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...

    It's Become a Goal

    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. :)

    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!
