My Bologna Has A First Name - And a Second Life

October 26th, 2009 at 07:49 pm

Wow, I often get ideas for this blog from other blogs that I peruse daily, and this one was a humdinger! How frugal is it acceptable to be when having guests? This one made me think, because we just had a housefull of people over the weekend. The inspiration blog dealt specifically with serving leftovers to the company, good or bad? I have to say I think it could be both. We have leftovers on a regular basis, both as heat-ups and reincarnated in something new. Would I feel bad about serving them to my guests? Ehhhhh.... We have 2 kinds of guests, the family/friends who are around all the time, and eat my leftovers as much as we do, and the invited over, lets plan something special folks. Although, now as I think about it, we don't have "fancy" people here, and probably don't know any. Is there anyone I know that I wouldn't serve a letover to, not really that I can think of, but I would certainly tell them. Would I feel slighted if we ate at a friends house and they served leftovers? No, I but I might ask for the recipe. But I also think that in planning a get-together, the meal is half the fun! Trying a new recipe! What a great bargain I got on this! Remember last time, the really bad dessert, well this is what I did different this time! (true story, but for another time)

    We always serve leftovers to family, and they enjoy it. My spouse is a good cook. To other friends, not sure I have served leftovers, but not sure why I wouldn't. The reason we often cook for them is because they aren't used to eating in (most our friends) and often we are trying to share that it's not *that* hard to whip up a meal. A request for a recipe is always a sign of success! (& does happen often...)

    I eat leftovers all the time so it wouldn't bother me in the slightest, to be served leftovers.

    After a big party, we'll ask friends over (and they've invited us over after their big parties) to use up the leftovers. In those cases we're all very open about it because that's the reason we're getting together.

    On a regular night, there are a few that I'd serve leftovers to, but not everyone.
