    for 3 weeks now my wife and I have been making our weeks meals on sunday, packing them all in daily tupperware containers and having them for lunch and dinner.

    it takes about 2 hours to prep and cook everything. We would cook things like chicken breast, talapia, and steak for the proteins
    rice, spagheti noodles, and quinoa for the starches
    and bocolie, carrots, spinach, and stir fry for veggies.

    they reheat very well and taste great. no dishes and more free times every day.

    this week we didnt do it like we had been doing though. I did make chili and had that monday, tues, and wed for lunch. now its sandwiches today and tomorrow...

    I agree with what's already been posted.. Some stuff just doesn't re-heat well. I'll eat some things that have leftovers but not others.
    Leftover pizza is never good.

    That's a pretty good idea, but how do you store the steak? I have tried to reheat steak, and unless its in some type of sauce or marinate, then its a dried out brick, which is a better doggie chew toy.

    I am generally not a fan. Also depends on what it is though. Only leftovers I'll bring to work for lunch is pasta or chicken dishes.

    good call on leftover seafood..no thanks

    pizza? i like it better cold the next day for breakfast. if need it hot..microwave it and toast the crust in a fry skillet..very good.

    nothing better for backpack hunting food than a slice of cold pizza..yum.

    I can't stomach cold pizza.
    And I cannot figure out how to re-heat a slice of pizza so it's not completely hard and dried out or the cheese doesn't taste like ass.
    :notsure:

    I know a lot of people who do it in a frying pan. I have yet to try but they all swear by it.

    I love cold left over pizza, but to reheat, I like to toss in on the rack in the oven .

    I use one of those toaster ovens to reheat pizza. Comes out nice and crispy when it's done.

    Also, to reheat most things in the microwave, put a damp paper towel over them. It keeps them from getting dried out.

    my buddy takes two slices of pizza and lays them together..cheese side to cheese side..then toast them with his george foreman grill. turns it into a calzone..cuz you cant peel them apart ever again.

    works.

    Yes I love leftovers! It just depends how they are prepared or re-prepared(?)
    Pizza: 30 seconds in the microwave to brush off the chill, then 5 minutes in a non-stick pan, gets it nice and hot with crispy crust, great stuff! (I can't stand cold pizza.)
    Everything else that does not need to be crispy, usually the microwave works fine.

    I do this as well. Although one night in college I passed out while heating up a slice of pizza in the oven. My room mates came home and thought the house was on fire. They were not impressed. Moral of the story, is do not try and heat up pizza while hammered, unless using a microwave.

    I couldn't help but LOL at this story!

    I can eat pizza cold no prob! But I usually put it on a cookie sheet/baking pan and let it crisp up in the oven.

    Leftovers are great. Maybe because I'm a dude and live by myself... :rolleyes:
