I don’t know about you, but after cooking 21 meals each week (breakfast, lunch and dinner) I wind up with a big stack of leftovers in my fridge. They are usually one serving of each different leftover, clearly not enough for a whole meal for all six of us. So my answer to not wasting all that food is to have a buffet night once a week.
I line up all the leftover casseroles, soups, breads, and meats on my kitchen counter and then we dish up our own plates with our weekly favorites. My kids just think this is the coolest. I have no idea why. But it not only cleans out my fridge and keeps us from wasting perfectly good food, but It’s one night a week I don’t have to cook.
What do you do with your leftovers?
