Leftovers in 2018

Left Over for Tomorrow
Tenison
1971

Time to kick off 2018 with some helpful advice about leftovers. Hopefully you have some remnants of holiday dinners to try out with this book.  At any given time in our fridge are the remnants of take-out food. (Some complete with moldy fuzz!) To me, this is leftovers. The author, however, is not exactly on the same page. The leftover recipes in this book are almost as complex as the original recipes. This book is more about versatile cooking than reheating some day-old food. This author turns leftovers up to 11. I get the feeling she is one step above dumpster diving.

This could be a fun book to browse…at a museum or archive of some sort. Sadly, there are quite a few public libraries listed in WorldCat that still have this book on their shelves.

I love the page that this submitter scanned from the book. Now there’s some sweet decor and fashion! I am impressed that they had an automatic dishwasher, though.
