We had leftovers tonight.
Leftovers are quick to fix. They are obviously budget friendly. And, reheating last night’s ________ is a great way to teach the kids how to make the most efficient use of resources.
(I’ll try not to think of it as much as “leftovers” and more like a social studies class on conservation. I guess all those grade school lessons I got in Kansas about saving the Ogallala Aquifer just keep welling up inside me. Heh. heh.)
Here’s to hoping that you are courageous enough to give your loved ones leftovers!
But how will you store them in the refrigerator? Nasty stained plastic containers with broken lids? Expensive plastic wrap that you use once and throw away?
How about putting them in a glass or ceramic bowl and covering them with a plate?
I personally like to pocket the $3 I would have spent on plastic wrap and spend it on a nice brick of tasty parmesan cheese. 🙂
