Attack of the Leftovers

I really dislike leftovers and try to avoid them for as long as possible. But eventually they begin to take over my refrigerator and I am forced to make room (and save money) by reheating them. This is an example of what the typical calamity of leftovers looks like...

Aside from the fact that I have a slight cling-warp overuse problem, you may notice that last night's dinner consisted of salad, baked beans, grilled chicken, mashed potatoes, Brussels sprouts, green beans, spaghetti, and a pork chop (beginning to heat up in the oven). A more cunning person may have been able to combine these ingredients into a cohesive meal, but I don’t pretend that cooking is my strong point. The happy ending is that the adversary was conquered and no stomach was left unsatisfied.

Thursdays are leftover night at this house and I'm always excited for it because it means I'm off the hook! Few dishes to clean and nothing to fix:)

I don't know - I always end up with a lot of dishes somehow. But I like the positive outlook.
