The most remarkable thing about my mother is that for thirty years she served the family nothing but leftovers. The original meal has never been found.
I thought that was a funny one. I've met people who say they don't eat leftovers. It's only fresh food for them. I always tell them with a laugh then you shouldn't eat at my house. To this day hubby's cousin doesn't know if I'm joking or not.
I pretty much save all leftovers. Most everything can be used again if not the same way I originally made it then chopped up and added to something else and they'll never be the wiser.
