We are just coming off a weeklong leftovers-fest, powered by a fridge full of meal remnants from a Friday supper with friends. There were spicy braised green beans with salt pork. There was a rich beef ragu and anelletti pasta. We also had roasted squash with garlic and onion soup. Even breakfast was leftovers; we made a pot of steel-cut oats with raisins and cinnamon and ate them all week. (They make fantastic leftovers and a quick breakfast too.)
(And if you want the guilty confessions too, we really, really love takeout vegetable lo mein cold and greasy from the box. For breakfast.)
These are just a few of the things that we love as leftovers. What about you? What do you cook in order to have around all week? What tastes better after a few nights in the fridge? What leftovers do you love the most?
