    I can't stand the idea of food going to waste. It's just hard for me to throw good food away.

    Honestly, the only leftover food I usually eat is pizza or food from a restauranr. For some reason I'm bad about eating the leftovers from food I make. I need to work on that.

    I always save leftovers, but, quite unfortunately, do not EAT them very often. Hate the idea of wasting food.....wish there was a viable option....I would take it personally to a Homeless Shelter, but I am sure they have strict rules about receiving food.....

    I don't like food going to waste, and sometimes it tastes better the second day.

    I don't like throwing good food away, so I save it for the next day.

    I usually save leftover food but for some reason it doesn't usually get eaten. My husband isn't much of a fan of leftovers unless it's pizza. Anything else usually gets pushed to the back of the fridge and found later when it's turned into a science experiment.

    I usually cook enough so that there is left overs so that my husband can take them for lunch the next day. Saves a lot of money on lunches!

    I love leftovers. I cook more than I need on purpose, so I will have leftovers for the next day. I also keep a large container with a tight seal in the freezer and dump my leftover veggys in it for making soup. When I get the container full, I add tomatoes and potatoes and meat. I have a great big pot of soup, that can be put in smaller containers and froze for later.
