With my older son off to college, we’re suddenly experiencing an excess of leftovers. Nothing extreme, but certainly enough that it could easily lead to unfortunate and heartbreaking food waste.
So I planned a meal of leftovers.
Chicken noodle soup, baked beans with ham, red curry over rice and tortellini with pesto.
So I invited my mother and step-father over for dinner. A buffet of leftovers. After all, I had this overabundance of leftover food, with a significant amount of leftover clean from our earlier houseguest. All served in colorful Fiestaware and eaten with freshly polished sterling silver flatware.
Beause I’m classy that way.
Leftovers are good. Already prepped food is good. Sharing bounty is good. A clean house is good. And honey, a relaxed hostess is very good!
Food waste bad.
