What Sam Wrote: “Leftovers Done Right”

Leftovers are an oddity at Casa Flor.

We don’t eat at home a lot — a quick glance at this photo bolsters that assertion — and while I go through spates of industry where I decide to cook, I would say that they happen infrequently. However, when I was writing this piece, which was tied to Thanksgiving leftovers, I realized how much I unconsciously already practiced “culinary conservation” — reducing, reusing and recycling. (One of my favorite things about writing the article was coming up with that premise of how to divide the categories.)

I’ve done the Everyday Food week’s-worth-of-meals plan more than once, for example. Quite a few “What’s for Dinner” posts are about them. And lots of the other suggestions in the article were dishes that were already in my arsenal. Maybe it’s because when I do cook, I still have trouble making things in less-than-family-size quantities (as this post and this one show). It’s always good to discover you know more than you thought you did. Hell, I’m practically an economy expert!*

*Disclaimer: I am nowhere close to being an economy expert.
