Leftovers: Love ‘em or leave ‘em? Win A $100 AmEx Gift Card!

Congratulations Nicole!

I am kind of in the middle on this one. For the most part I love leftovers but if there is something I am tired of seeing (why, oh why, can I never get used to cook in small quantities?). Restaurant leftovers are always a treat since I carefully choose what I order, and so are party meals. Anyone else thinks that leftovers sometimes taste better than their day earlier counterpart? Me too! It must be something with that soaking in the spices that make the taste deepen. Of course for the most part I always love to jazz it up.

Seriously heating on the stove is way better than microwave heating and also an opportunity to roast a few veggies or anything in to make it fresher. For curries my one favorite tip is to add fresh cilantro leaves. I always consider a dish compete with adding those leaves. Of course for stuff that I KNOW will not be eaten I don’t add it to my pile of leftover containers in the refrigerator – I mean tossing now is way better than tossing when it is moldy, plus I can save myself the effort later.

How about you? Love leftovers?

    I don’t have a name for it–olive oil, chicken or turkey, garlic, onion, chopped tomato, veggies, bit of crushed red pepper, Parmesan tossed with pasta of choice. For Fall, the veggies are lovely seasonal squashes like acorn or butternut chunks.
