We had a few "leftover" meals this past week, Hubby always says, no one can re-heat, like I can. As long as the food has been looked after all the way along, re-heating food, is more than fine and having leftovers in the house enables me to have a night off cooking. One of my favourite blogs is Frugal Queen and she calls leftovers "Ding Cuisine" She often makes a traditional Sunday Roast lunch then puts leftovers away for another dinner and lunches.
It's funny/strange, but my late Father in law would not eat leftovers, I still can't get my head around that fact! Why wouldn't you eat perfectly good food if it is available and it meant no wasted food? I think I have told you about the huge amount of food that my In Laws used to hoard, it was like they both had done without through their lives, which wasn't the case, so for them not to eat leftovers always baffled me.
I have also written about food waste and I know that it is a topic that everyone is well aware of. Rhonda from Down to Earth Blog posted a link last Friday called Hughs war on waste. Even though it is filmed in Britain, I think we can relate to the basic message. Food waste has got to stop.
