Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

“Embrace Leftovers”

I’m always shocked when people tell me they “don’t like leftovers”. Leftovers are a busy person’s best friend! Cook once and eat three or four times? Sign me up! Of course, not everything is delicious leftover. Cooked fish is better off made into fish cakes or added to a salad than reheated. Leftover cooked greens can be mushy. Salads that are pre-tossed with dressing get wilted and slimy.

But many things are delicious leftover. Soup, chili, cooked chicken, beef or pork, curry, and casseroles are all fantastic the next day. Some dishes even taste better when the flavors have had a chance to meld.
