I have a hog tied to a large oak tree behind my house. My goal each day is to starve that hog to death. There is no telling how many hogs I've staved...hundreds, maybe thousands. That's my position on left over food.











Oh, for the record the hog is imaginary...not a real hog.

For me the two best leftovers are stew of any kind and pasta with leftover sauce. With or without the meat.

My favorite would have to be leftover beef stew.

Well, living in Kazakhstan, you probably could tell your grandma how hard times were then. Hope not for you, but I am sure for some native people.

honestly, outside of army we were ok. My mother was a genius when it came to find foods. Me, well, I was not as good, but I tell I did have my ways to find good piece of meat or salami, not sure if I am allowed to say here what i had to do for that salami.

But on the subject of leftovers. I am the garbage disposal in the family. I will eat anything. Like right now I found 2 weeks old chicken. Still tastes good.
