Too Much Or Too Little
Using Up Leftovers
We try not to waste in this house - especially food, so anything leftover from the previous night's meal may be refrigerated and used for lunch the following day. This especially applies to potatoes. Quite often, I do a few extra the previous day, so there are potatoes in the fridge ready to be cooked next day. My granddaughter and husband both like fried potatoes with baked beans and a fried egg.
I went to make today's lunch for them and there were quite a few potatoes available, probably too many but I cut them all and put them on to fry. The pan was pretty full. Just then my husband came in and said I had used too many potatoes and the two of them would not eat them all and it would be a waste.
Lo and behold, our daughter phoned just then and asked if she and the kids could come and play in the garden for a while and by the way, if there was any food going, could we give the kids some!
Instead of too much, we ended up having just enough and everyone had lunch.
