Leftover Times

There was an article on leftovers in Wednesday’s New York Times. While it was exciting to see a topic I’m so fond of discussed in that venue, I thought it was…an odd piece. With questionable examples used. Cheese-revoking is bad enough, but bread stealing as retribution?!

Making a meal from scratch that’s intended to appear as if it came from leftovers = silliness. And as a few commenters noted, the title didn’t represent what the story really was about: serving leftovers to those outside the household. 

What’s clear is that the topic of leftovers is ever popular–there were 64 comments before the site closed off feedback (for some reason). As with food waste in general, everyone has a take on leftovers one way or the other.

What was your take on the article?
