when i was a kid (late 50's, early 60's), we would save
all the leftover bits and finish them off for saturday
night supper. chow mein, liver and onions, salisbury
steak, peas, potato cakes from leftover mashed potatoes...
all kinds of combinations of dibs and dabs. i sincerely
think it spoke of rough times in the depression and in the
old country (hungary) when nothing went to waste.
for some bizaare reason, my irish father called it
'leftover for meddlers'. go figger.
nowadays, if it's not worth a half a meal or lunch, it
becomes a kitty-feast.
