Tasty Leftovers

There are times when we are just too tired or exhausted to come up with a dinner plan. One of the easiest dinners is to have leftover night. This night can give respite to the family cook while conserving the family budget. This simple little dinner idea even stretches the food budget, by not having any waste.

This may probably be the easiest and most obvious dinner option: leftovers. Every family has some version of leftovers, but not all families know best how to do leftover night. Some people dread leftover night, but if you know how to do leftover night the right way, then you can turn lame leftover night into an amazing.

Spend a about a week or so collecting leftovers in your fridge. You don't want to go beyond a week or the leftovers can begin to turn bad. Just make sure that you store them safely in Tupperware and keep them in the refrigerator. Make sure that you remember where they are in the fridge (because we all know that sometimes things get lost in an overstocked fridge!) and on a night when you just aren't up for making dinner, tell each member of your family to pick a leftover. Heat the food up in the microwave and make sure to use waxed paper to cover the leftovers so they don't spatter all over the microwave.

Eat your leftovers on a plate, so it's like a real meal! Drink water or lemonade or punch in an iced glass. Maybe even mix up some biscuits, heat up some extra vegetables, and dish up some fruit to make your leftovers a meal again. Leftovers are still the same food that you ate a few days before—you just have to know how to fix it up so it is still fit for a real meal! Make sure that you sit down with your family and have a family meal like you would for a dinner that you made that night. This can be a regular family dinner just like any other night! Enjoy!
