Charlie, I think most of us are familiar with Russia's "five year plans," "seven year plans", but did any of them ever succeed? And was your family ever the beneficiary of all the grain the US sent to Russia when the "Plans" failed?

I almost always cook with leftovers in mind. I makes a quick meal the next day or a great packed lunch for work.

On the subject of leftovers

Officially we never used your grain. Officially it was of inferior quality. Maybe only good for animals. Plans "of course we're successful " we used to finish them in a year or two. We work so fast. The rest 3 years we did nothing. And got paid accordingly.

Like a few others here, I cook for one. There's almost always leftovers. Some are accidental leftovers, but many are planned. I grill often and there's no way I'm going to grill, for example, one or two chicken thighs for one meal. Even when I'm grilling a big thick rib eye, I usually throw some veggies on the grill to make the best use of the coals.

About the only things I throw out if I don't eat it all in one meal are veggie salads, fruit salads, and fish. I don't expect fish to reheat well, but I've been known to nibble on a piece of leftover fish the next morning if I especially liked it the night before.

edited...I wouldn't call a cake or pie 'leftovers' though...in my mind leftovers are from a meal and not a dessert. Just like I wouldn't consider a carton of ice cream from the freezer leftovers if a scoop had been taken out of it.

Cheryl, `i'm not going to say all fish is best reheated, but if you put it on a preheated hot pizza stone ``(with parchment paper) it's pretty good.........nothing to lose......\\\and `i agree with the r:)est
