Cooking every meal at home was nice at first, a daily challenge that I enjoyed because I love to cook. And while I still look forward to experimenting with new recipes and finding new family favorites, I've also started to focus on recipes I can prepare that will feed us for more than one meal. That's why it's a good thing I love leftovers—especially leftovers you can eat cold.
Most people appreciate leftovers, especially when you’re sticking close to home for a while. It’s like having free take-out food, just waiting for you in the fridge. Sure, soups and stews always hold well for days and often taste better after a little rest. For me, however, the best leftovers can be eaten straight from the icebox (if not while standing right in front of it). Here are a few of my all-time favorites.
