Even though we know eating at home is cheaper than eating out, the effort it takes to cook after a long work day often does not outweigh the thought of money saved by eating-in. Some people cook a few dishes on Sunday to be eaten throughout the week, but when there's someone who simply despises leftovers you may find some of this food going to waste.
I've always enjoyed leftovers (cold spaghetti, anyone?) but my better half had always been staunchly against them. His life-long protest to next-day food was broken by cooking some dishes that actually taste better the day after they're made.
Requests for those dishes are frequent, and I'm happy to cook things we both love and know that nothing will be wasted. A special black bean chili and family soup recipes are to thank for inspiring a positive change that surely saves us some money. Food in the fridge waiting for me after work and conserved cash is a delicious, double win!
