One of the ladies from our church dubbed left-overs “refrigerator blessings”.  I think this is a wonderful name & it brings a smile whenever I hear it.  She is now deceased but definitely not forgotten.

Shalom, y’all, Becky

In this economy people cannot afford Prime Rib. Even ham is a luxury. If you want to reach the real people try using leftover chicken or hamburger.

Paula, my wonderful now deceased husband loved to eat and always called left overs, “planned overs”  That name has stayed with our family.
