I inherited my habit of combining leftovers from my dad, a.k.a. The Human Garbage Can. He lives by the logic that if Dish A was delicious and Dish B was delicious, then combining them should equal something also delicious. Or at least edible.
If you think about it, combining leftovers can be a way of figuring out interesting new flavor combinations - or combinations to avoid. I remember a grain salad and chili incident that has never been repeated.
Are there any successful (or not) leftover combinations in your recent dining history?
