  • I guess the enzyme that helps digest it is plasticforkase.

  • In order to be properly absorbed, leftoverin is best taken with microwavin.

  • Thanks Prolagus. I had to take leftoverin pills when I was afflicted with copiopia. Cleared it right up!

    April 11, 2008

  • Yes, palooka, they contain leftoverin, also known as vitamin L.

  • Right up there with chocolate.

  • If it wasn't for leftovers, I'd only eat two or three times a week reesetee. Leftovers are an essential food group.

    April 11, 2008

  • Now that you put it that way, palooka, leftovers do sound far more appealing. ;-)

    April 11, 2008

  • Indeed frindley! I hope the candles were out before you put them in your bag. That's an important safety precaution.

    April 10, 2008

  • Ah. So are you saying that if I'd put food in the doggie bag instead of the candles and the napkin holders I might have found it all the more appetising the next day?

    April 10, 2008

  • There are certain rules concerning doggie bag use by the way. For instance it's in bad taste to:

    1. Ask your fellow diners if you can put their leftovers in your bag

    2. Ask the waiter if the kitchen has any excess food you can put in your bag.

    3. Include silverware, plates, glasses, salt & pepper shakers, etc in your bag.

    4. Include parts of the restaurant's wiring, plumbing, or wall decorations in your bag.

    5. Amble about the restaurant attempting to sell leftover items in your bag to the other diners.

    Etc. I imagine you all have other rules to follow concerning doggy bag usage.

  • Leftover cheese fries from Outback, though I've never ordered them, seem like something that would not make a good leftover meal. On the other hand, one of those enormous gigundo bowls of pasta-fatsauce-grilled chicken-strips stuff that's usually only $8.99 or so does make an excellent lunch next day. And sometimes an excellent dinner next day also.

    Sushi is also not good as a leftover. Not advisable.

    April 10, 2008

  • That's a fact. It truly is a waste if you can't bear eating leftovers. I'm lucky to be one of those who actually enjoys them (usually).

    April 10, 2008

  • Well, I guess serving size helps justify a certain price point or gives the impression of better value or something. I wouldn't have minded so much, except I could never face eating the contents of the doggie bag the next day, so it really was a waste. Whereas some of my friends had the two-meals-for-the-price-of-one thing down to a fine art.

  • Frindley, many of us in the United States are also appalled by the amount of food that's wasted at restaurants. I continually wonder where marketers came up with the idea that we all want to eat a week's worth of food at one sitting.

    Then again, it does seem to be helping the doggie bag industry, as palooka points out. ;-)

    April 10, 2008

  • Interesting observation frindley. That's why the doggie bag industry is so prosperous here in the US.

    It's great to pay for dinner in a restaurant & have enough left over for the next day's lunch & dinner. Takes the economic sting out of dining out.

    We do have a penchant for bigness here in the US that is seriously straining the earth's resources.

  • I always ask for a doggy bag here in New Amsterdam... but I'm afraid that soon I will just finish my plate.

    April 10, 2008

  • Not clear where this phrase is going, but to follow the thread of conversation: Australians are indeed enjoying an aspirational spate of obesity it would seem. But in my experience it is still possible to go to most restaurants here and receive a normal-sized serving that can more or less be finished by the diner while he or she is there. When in the States I was appalled by the amount of food that was wasted because I could rarely finish more than half of what was served to me.

    April 10, 2008

  • I have nothing but respect for Australians. Anyway you'd kick our butts too. Aussie's are tough.

    April 10, 2008

  • Stereotype of Americans. And yes, Australia has a high rate of obesity. And yes, I'd be completely happy with the complete overthrow of every established political office in the country.

    April 10, 2008

  • Americans? What, are Aussie's petite eaters? Maybe it's time for a regime change in Sydney. Iraq's no fun anymore.

    April 10, 2008

  • Americans.
