Eat Your "Encores"

I had a friend who used to call her meal leftovers "Encores". She said the word "leftovers" sounded bad and would make others dread having it for the next meal. She said this was especially handy when having company.


If it were mentioned that, say for instance, "Chicken Broccoli Encore", only you and your husband would know, you'd had the meal previously. Something else she'd do was to never have the same meal, 2 nights in a row. After a meal, anything leftover, got bagged up, identified with dish name and date and stashed in the freezer for another time.

I have a neighbor that calls her leftovers, "couldn'ts" since they couldn't eat it all the first time.

This is good, lol. We call left over night--buffet night. I arrange all of the leftovers onto the counter in an apetizing arrangement, then each person fills their own plate with their choices. We do this about once a week although sometimes we skip a week and I freeze leftovers until there is enough for our buffet night. We all enjoy this night.
