Leftovers

I am awful about leftovers.

I will go to the trouble of making some really wonderful meal (pozole, pot roast, etc) and then end up throwing the leftovers away.

Usually I just forget about them. I think part of the reason is because we eat out so much. When I go to work I am pretty good about using those leftovers as lunch. Since I have been off work because of the holidays and now this flu, well they sit there.

Eric will take leftovers if I package them up and he doesn't have it the next day. But to be honest, by then I have usually forgotten. ha ha

I did realize, I think what I need to do is buy more containers for lunches and just put everything away like that. I invision our fridge with the small, ready to go lunches for the week.

That is what must happen. I think it is the only way. My next outing I will get the proper size and hope and pray that the lids don't go to some far away place that lids and socks disappear too.

Leftovers shall be eaten. I will mentally add this to my Small Things list
