The Policy

What’s your policy on leftovers? Do you try to farm it all out to your guests? Do you stash it away and eat the same thing over and over again for a week? Do you have clever ways to make leftovers look like something new? Ahh, it’s turkey enchiladas tonight! Surprise! Or maybe you stick in the freezer and then toss it out a few months later. What happens to all the leftover food we think we need to have a holiday feast?

  1. great thought, so much goes in the bin these days, I wonder if that’s why they call it the sin bin in rugby, when a player goes off for a short while for an offence, throwing out food is much the same, be blessed

  2. It depends on what the food is. Generally speaking, dinner leftovers will be packed for work lunches the next day. Or leftover vegetables will be incorporated into omelettes. But sometimes my husband and I will intentionally make enough food to freeze the leftovers for a future dinner. One thing we DON’T do is eat the same dinner two or more nights in a row.
