Last night`s leftovers meant being lazy today.

AS you know, I had my niece and her family last night for diner. We had a great time together and the baby was sweet, all full of laughter. Yesterday I made chicken on tomato sauce to be served with pasta. I didn`t want to have too little, so I overdid it. It was wonderful as I will be able to be lazy the rest of the weekend. Fortunatly I love this meal so I can have it 2 days on a row. And tomorrow I`m invited for lunch tto my daughter`s house for egg`s seeking. Are leftover your salvation sometimes? Most of the times I freeze them to be eaten later on, but this once I will not do a thing at home until Monday

Leftovers are absolutely a salvation in my house :) My daughters are both students and all of us are on different schedules. When I prepare dinners, I always make more than I need for the one meal. I package up the leftovers into microwaveable containers and those become lunches or extra dinners. There is always something in the fridge that way so anyone can grab a quick hot meal when they arrive home. It's a lot nicer than buying commercial frozen dinners! Also, on days when I'm running behind schedule, I don't have to worry about not having anything for dinner... I can put together enough food with leftovers.

I am definitely a person that likes to have access to leftovers, but I am typically not the kind of person that will eat the leftovers for dinner the following day. If there are not enough that they would feed more than one of us, then I will eat them for lunch. However, on the times when I have a pretty good amount of leftovers, then I will save them and freeze them to use on a day when we have something to do or I just really don't feel like cooking.

I know that the way you handle leftovers is different if you live alone or have to cook for a whole family. I never used leftovers at home for diner when we were 4 people. Like you do, I ate them when the rest of the fsmily was at school or at work. I had an american friend who worked very far from home and he took a lunch of leftovers most of the time.

Glad to hear that you had leftovers and now you don't have to worry about cooking. And yes I do feel leftovers do save us a lot of the time. Last night my husband did the dishes since when he is upset he feels he has to be working at something. So I really don't have to worry about doing the dishes. I'm glad about that.

I`m back from my easter lunch with the grandkids and it is wonderful to have nice healthy food already made for dinber. I had a nap as soon as I returned. Children are very energetic. Now I`m heating a bit of leftover food as I have too many chocolate eggs in my tummy. I`ll continue with leftovers tomorrow.
