Tonight we ate leftovers from Sunday dinner. I warmed up the extra pork gravy and added some fresh mushrooms and the leftover roast to it, then served it over hot rice.
I love leftovers – scraps and snippets, odds and ends, bits and pieces. In fact, I wouldn’t be offended if someone engraved
She used it up;
She wore it out;
She made it do;
Or did without.
The wear and tear
Did her in.
on my headstone. Even though I didn’t grow up in the Depression and I don’t hoard, I do like seeing things all used up.
My daily list usually has some leftovers from the day before added to it. It’s great because I never have to worry about what I’ll do tomorrow.
Another leftover I have is three Golden Corral gift certificates. Some friends gave them to us but we didn’t get them used before our Golden Corral closed. I have no idea how much is still on them – I’m thinking about $30 total, but I’m not sure. I don’t see us getting to a town that has a Golden Corral in it in the near future. If you’d like them, just mention it in the comment section and leave your e-mail address. If there is more than one of you we’ll put your name in Calvin’s hat and draw a leftover Golden Corral winner.
That’s what the 29th of February is to me – a day of leftovers. All those minutes that didn’t get used up in 20011, 2010, or 2009 got put together and lo and behold, we get a whole new day tomorrow. What a deal. That's better than pork gravy on Tuesday night.
