Leftovers fans - what foods do you not like as leftovers?

To me, leftovers are 99% as good as fresh meals. But, I'm not crazy about leftover salads, greens and lima beans.

Fries. I still reheat and eat them, but it's never the same. Also, nachos.

Pretty much any seafood, with the sole exception of smoked fish dip.

Tomahawk rib-eye steak. Reheating makes it a wee bit too "medium". I'll still eat it though.
Fish. Especially reheated in the office microwave.

I will agree that most tossed salads don't store well, along with single serving portions of meats cooked to medium-rare/medium, and pasta with cream/egg sauces.

My favorite spaghetti sauce is best as leftovers (diced roma tomatoes, garlic, basil, olive oil). Ham and Lima beans is good for a couple of days. I make Mac and Cheese to purposely have leftovers. I will occasionally buy Costco pizza and freeze it in portions to have leftovers for a week.

Fried items are better if you warm them in the oven old-school; microwaves make them soggy.

Dishes with salad greens are pretty much one and done.

But other than that, generally if I like it fresh, I like it left-over.

She doesn't disguise them as a new dish? Or just not cook enough to begin with?

Then again I think I'd let him take over the cooking...

The more times chili is reheated the better it gets

Chimichangas and flautus don't survive well. Reheating in a conventional oven helps. Don't even put the guacamole in the box - it won't survive the trip home from the restaurant.

Put it into a small plastic bag and squeeze all the air out.

It's probably easier to ask which foods are OK to eat as leftovers. Mexican, seafood, very tough to reheat properly. However, Chinese and other Asian foods are pretty easy, and oftentimes better when reheated. We all know pizza can last for days on the countertop and be eaten when necessary. ;

I love leftovers. When I was single and visiting my parents, I brought my own containers to take leftovers home.

I guess the only thing I do not like is salad...

Bring your own, of course. You'll have them along anyway to load up on sugar packets.

And McDonald’s fries, specifically, become leftovers after about 10 minutes
