Leftovers

Do you do leftovers?
Cold pizza for breakfast, the last corner of last night's lasagna for lunch, or spicy pieces of baked chicken cut up and stirred into some barbecue sauce for a sandwich?
Diced baked potato, skin and all, thrown into a skillet after the onions and slices of beef are nice and brown?
Broccoli or baby peas on top of a salad?
Cooked carrots in place of pasta, making one last bowl of spaghetti with the remaining half cup of sauce?

Do you savor the velvety warmth of day old soup, hanker for a piece of bread and some steak from last night's cookout, or go into stealth chef mode to hide the one remaining pork chop for your lunch tomorrow?

As soon as you walk into your mother's kitchen, do you yank open the refrigerator door, searching for whatchabeencookingandcanIhavesomewarmedup?

Are toasted turkey sandwiches with a little bit of dressing and cranberry your friend the entire Thanksgiving weekend?

Ah, leftover loving foodies, lend me your sympathy today as I attempt to pack my lunch bag. Last night, we had breakfast for supper, and this morning there is nary a scrap of bacon to be crumbled. *gasp* I am having to cook something to take for my lunch!

Yep... cook a little extra, pop in the freezer, then in the lunch box/cooler... I also bought chicken pot pies, and single serve lasagna and told those for lunch... and when all else failed... peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Yep, PB or PBJ always works for me! Chicken pot pie sounds good, makes me contemplate making one...
