Yep! Living alone means lots of leftovers. If it's a casserole, I try not to eat it all, because a serving or two in the freezer means a no mess kitchen for that day.

I try to plan my meals so that there are some leftovers to either eat later, or to make other dishes with, i.e., taco meat can be used for more tacos, burritos, turned into chili or baked in a mac and cheese casserole for taco mac or chili mac. Which also can become more leftover dinners to use for my no mess kitchen nights.


If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.
