I still haven't seen RR's new show.
I usually don't watch too much of Robin's show, since she makes a lot of dishes I don't really care about, but her plan ahead thinking reminds me to keep my mind open to ideas for planned leftovers.
For years, I'd make something and then keep eating the leftovers as is. Now I plan for morphing my recipes into something else. Some of the second and even third round recipes have become keepers too.
If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.
