I know this isn't the answer to the question asked, but I was wondering if you considered not having leftovers? For me, all of my meals start with leftovers from the last meal usually still in the pot I cooked them in. For example, leftover vegetables often become an omelet, an ingredient on a pizza, a quiche, burrito, etc. For any leftover, instead of thinking of it as the final product, I think of the ingredients. For example if it is a fruit, it might become pancake syrup or popover, or muffin ingredients. If I am tired of it, it becomes, either chicken food, dog food or pig food. Or, I used to have an ice cream bucket in the freezer where all leftovers got dumped in together and when it became full we had refrigerator soup for dinner with biscuits or corn bread.
