Remnants

Michael & I have never been very good at leftovers. After big meals, we always fill Tupperware and - more often than not - "forget" about them. Unless it's lasagna or a particularly delicious ratatouille recipe that I sometimes prepare, the leftovers hang out in our fridge, untouched, until it's time to toss 'em.

Well, now that Alice is around and expecting to be clothed and cared for, we've entered a new era of fiscal conservatism. As a result, leftovers are the new dinner. Here's the carnage after tonight's meal of london broil & mac & cheese for Michael and pasta for me (with a side of fresh veggies and cantaloupe):


Let's be honest - leftovers just aren't as good.

So true! Leftovers are never as good but become a necessity in the early days :) Stephen and I have toyed around with the idea of instituting a pot luck day (ala The Cosby Show) where we work on emptying the entire fridge of food stuffs...maybe when the girls are a little older.
