I especially hate when I have to make the decision to dispose of the objects bowl and all, or face the task of opening them and flushing them down the disposal and washing the bowl. I have chosen the former option on more than one occasion, and who hasn't?
Which brings me to the idea of Planned-Overs. There are many dishes that fit the bill perfectly for transforming from one meal into another. And you can take advantage of the fact that half the preparation is already done and use these on your menu plan for the nights that you need a quickie meal.
Like this yummy Cheese Steak Sandwich made from thin sliced leftover pot roast on a deli roll.
