if there's still something i try to eat at least the day after except from pasta.
can't face a rewarmt plate of pasta, no matter the kind (ok, it's not true, lasagne are ok) but i know exactly how much pasta i can cook so it never happens.
I could eat leftover lasagna all week

Au contraire, Expatgirl. Try heating them up in a toaster oven. Just as yummy as new

We are totally into our leftovers especially butter beans ,chicken noodle soup from scratch etc. As far as spaghetti,chili sauces etc I freeze to save time fot the next meal. Our neighbor cooks to much for her and DH and she used to toss it now she gives us her left overs and we love them as she is a great cook.

I try to utlize all leftovers in one form or another... only on occasion leftovers go untouched and are discarded after a week. Left over steak (any cut of meat) always goes nice on top of a green salad. Then if I am making a stew or soup, left over meats, beans, veggies can go in there with no issues.

I make a tortilla soup using left over cornbread, beans, and chicken and even noted it in my recipe.

We make pretty good use of our leftovers... more so than what we did years ago!
