My very favorite leftovers are barbecued chicken and rare steak, never reheated. As Andy mentioned it seems like soups and some stews are even better the next day. I would agree however that many good meals just don't taste right as leftovers. My husband on the other hand, will eat any leftovers for days and days.......good thing, because I won't.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

DH has to take sandwiches to one job, but he loves leftovers when he goes to his homecare job because he can heat them up. He will suggest things for dinner just so he can make up to-go meals for himself. Some of his favourites are:
- Stew (any kind)
- Chile (any kind)
- Chicken Cacciatore
- Pasta sauce (he just makes fresh noodles before he goes and assembles and heats at work
- Stroganoff (even I love this one better the next day and I am not a leftovers lover)
- Sweet and Sour Pork with rice
- Soups of all kinds
- Shepherds pie

Actually anything that has a sauce or liquid is as good/better the next day because the contents keep absorbing the flavour.

I love egg rolls, pizza, steak and chicken the day after, but like others they have to be cold, not heated

Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffeine-free and loving it!
