    For a Bunch of Reasons

    I Do

    My roommate always saved leftovers

    Warm Ups!

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

    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...

    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. :)
