Usually send them to work with my husband and let kids eat them for lunch the next day

Put it in a glass container and freeze it. I usually re-cook them with a different version like soup, fritata, omelette or porridge.

Good question - so much money is wasted in the form of disposed food.

Lately I've been making fried rice with leftover rice, that's usually what's left over. Meat always gets consumed, no worries there.

Or chuck any leftovers into a soup base and add spices and stuff. That usually works.

Sometimes I'll take a batch and freeze it, saves me cooking in the future.

We'll eat leftovers from a previous meal, just warm it up and maybe add another side for variety. Also add fresh salad on the side with every meal. Neither of us have any probs with that.

I try to "revamp" leftovers by using the food in new dishes, e.g. leftover veggies mixed with leftover pasta and some seasoning blended into leftover soup or combining leftover taco meat with pasta from a different night.

If there is so many leftovers I would have to eat it for all three meals for several days and still have some left, I try to freeze it into several smaller portions.

Freeze them and use it to cook something tasty the next day.
stratas are a wonderfuk way to use up small amounts of foods. breakfast foods including french toast and pancakesfor a breakfast strata, bread,rolls,ect for lunch or dinner items also. just butter a casserol dish line with bread items, layer with chopped up foods of choice each layer using up bread and chopped foods. Make a mix of eggs and cream pour oer casserol and coer. put in fridge till next meal and bake till firm. amazing what you can make doing this.

So many of my leftovers end up in fried rice or stir-fry. It's so easy to just chop up left over meat or vegetables and toss it with rice and sauce.

I make a lunch for my dad’s work days and usually end up finishing the rest the next day.

I always warm up the leftovers for another meal the next day, like for breakfast or lunch.

I use leftovers for lunch or dinner. I dont cook again until leftovers are done. That way I dont waste food or energy.

I just actually reheat the food and no spices added unless it is a fried fish. I saute it with tomatoes.

Leftovers are always eaten in my house as for some reason they taste better after you reheat them. They don't last more than a day.

Either I save it for later or give it to my dogs if it’s an okay food for them to have.

I'm not a fan of leftovers, but thankfully my husband will eat just about anything the next day for breakfast so I leave it for him.
