Packin’ the Leftover Lunch


Clearing the table after dinner?  Why not turn your supper into a leftover lunch for the next day…

Packing a leftover lunch in 3 easy steps:

1. Have your containers ready

2. Throw in a serving of leftovers as the table is being cleared.  Don’t forget the condiments.

Packin’ Tip: If you don’t have a container for your dressing, ketchup, etc. put it in a snack plastic ziploc bag.

3. Stick it in the fridge

Packing a leftover lunch can be as quick as this post.

Happy Leftovers!

    Hiya! Fellow librarian here! 🙂 I’ve been following your blog for lunch tips, since I, too, try to bring my lunch to work everyday.

    I mostly use leftovers as lunches. We are only two at home and most recipes serve four anyway. The lunch packing method I like the most is putting the extra portions in the containers as I serve dinner. I pull out two plates and two containers (or more) and ta-da! The lunches are done before we begin to eat!

    Of course, this doesn’t work if we want second helpings! 🙂

      Nice to have a fellow librarian on board. That’s a great idea, just scooping it out as you go. Leftovers definitely make packing a little easier that’s for sure. What is one of your favorite leftover lunch meals?

      That’s how my mom packs her lunch–making dinner and then serving up a leftover portion for the next day.

      Thanks for leaving a commment, I’m off to check out your blog 🙂

    Good thinking – mornings are so hectic, it’s great to stay ahead of the game.

    Wondering if ALL librarians are crafty and cool?

    • FM February 3, 2011, 6:22 pm

      I can answer that one Amy…YES! Course I could be a little bias 😉
