Some people seem to thrive off of leftovers--diving into two week old Asian food, or settling for three-day old casserole with fresh cheese added on top.

Others, like myself, loathe the idea of eating food that has sat around a kitchen or chilled in the refrigerator for a while.

What do you think? Are leftovers a part of life? Or do you prefer to pretend they don't exist and go for a more "fresh" friendly dish?

    My favorite breakfast is 'dinner and an egg', meaning leftovers with an egg scrambled in. Love it!

    Our leftovers never last very long anyway. ^^

    Depends on what it is. Usually I don't like eating the same stuff with a few days of each other. But if ifs right after Christmas or Thanksgiving I will, just because we have a ton of everything and I don't have to eat the same thing.

    As long as I can remember when the food was put away and how long ago that seems, I'm generally OK. I clean out the fridge on a semi-regular basis - either throwing out the old stuff or eating everything that is still good and tossing the rest. It works for me.

    ooh that's a smart idea. A lot of people just don't take the time out of their day to make sure their food is still any good.
  • NPC 2012/06/30 23:44:57

    Not old food. Maybe 3 or 4 days if you regrigerate it in ziplocs or air tight containers. Why waste good food ?

    well, I generally try to avoid them as much as possible, making just enough to feed the people who will be eating with me. But for instance, if I make a bit too much spaghetti and try and put it away for later, the smell over powers the refrigerator and makes everything smell like it when you open the doors. It's overbearing, not to mention food's taste to me just degenerates over time. blegh haha
  • chyla 2012/06/30 23:42:43
    Don't.
