Foods that are better cold the next day

DH eats all leftovers straight out of the fridge. He can't be bothered to waste 60 seconds to warm them up.

I prefer hot foods to be hot.

Pop tarts, to me, taste like extra sweet jam sandwiched between two pieces of cardboard and covered with a layer of Elmer's glue. I haven't had them in a very long time, maybe they've gotten better.

I purposely make pasta/noodle salads that start out hot, to have cold for several meals. When the pasta is hot, it absorbs the dressing better!

I enjoy them hot, but I also enjoy them as leftovers cold. I'd say it's about equal.

I do that with most pasta salads, but I draw the line at pesto I just think heating pesto ruins it. I don't know why, I just do

Now, this recipe is really good hot *or* cold. I made it on a chilly spring day once and it was great hot. The next day was really hot, so we had it cold. Delicious!

Can it make a sandwich to take to work or school? Then I will eat it cold. Anything that is breaded never heats up very well in the micro. I will pass on cold pizza. I am not a bread eater so I usually scrape off the toppings after my third or fourth slice of hot pizza. The crust goes to the side, I eat just the toppings.

Cold pasta? Nah, I don't think so. I think a lot of that list was comprised of foods that a person with a hangover would eat first thing in the morning. I once asked my husband why he wanted to eat anything out of the fridge first thing in the morning. "To get rid of that fuzzy feeling in my mouth."

One word-- Meat loaf Sanwiches. ( You can make it one word if you say it while stuffing one in your mouf.)

Oh yes....meat loaf sandwiches! That's the main reason I make meat loaf.
I like cold fried chicken, can tolerate pizza cold, but I'd rather put it in a frying pan so at least the crust crisps up. I like cold pasta if it was made to be cold, like in a salad. Even then I like most things to set out just a bit so they're not straight-from-the-fridge cold.

I love meatloaf sandwiches too. I nuke the meatloaf briefly to warm it up for the sandwich.

And this is one time when mayo does not go on the bread. Ketchup only!
