Personally, I think the poor guy should run as fast and as far as he can away from the OP and her DD.

Imagine how much hand-wringing and teeth gnashing there would be when something important happens.

Not wanting to eat leftovers isn't even a blip on the radar.

I think you're putting a lot of judgement on a young man that your daughter has only been "dating" for 6 weeks based on his refusal of your soup and his general dislike of leftovers.
I agree. The living off loans, no job, no roommate make him financially irresponsible, not refusing to eat leftovers.

I will occassionally eat a slice of left over pizza or maybe chinese food, but that's about it. I cannot stand leftover meat of any kind. It's just gross. And i have to say that frozen and reheated food, including soup, DOES taste different and has a different texture.

Count me as a financially-responsible leftover hater!

I don't see any teeth gnashing from the OP or her daughter. I think anyone is smart to look at their boyfriend, see his own apartment, a new truck, no job, says he's running out of money, and is taking loans for all his living expenses, and see red flags. The soup thing just brought it all to the forefront and made them wonder, "is this unwillingness to eat leftovers part of a pattern of financial irresponsibility?"

It's not about the soup. It's about the money problem. I don't like soup, but I'm not offended. I do actually see some teeth gnashing, but it seems to be from the soup people.

He isn't the DD's boyfriend. Per the OP, he's a guy her DD has been casually seeing for six weeks or so.

Exactly, plus when he told her that he was running out of money, he said he needed to get a job which sounds pretty responsible to me.

We don't do leftovers in any way, shape or form...never have an never will. That doesn't make us bad people or mean that we are financially irresponsible. It just means that we don't like leftovers.

Haven't read all 8 pages, but I personally don't like most things reheated...on the rare occasions that we actually end up with leftovers.

Generally our dinners are enough to feed us that night and not much of anything is leftover, so it's not usually an issue.

My wife will make enough pasta so that she can have it for lunch the next day or make enough chili that I can warm it up later as well...but generally that's about it.

And BTW, we are very financially responsible......

edit to add --

The kid should run far way from the girl and her family....if this lack of eating leftovers is even an issue for them to be discussing / posting on a message board.

I'm not much of a leftover person honestly but it depends on what the food is. If it's a soup/stew, casserole or something like lasagna, I will eat leftovers....usually for lunch the next day. However most meat tends to be too dry and/or overcooked when reheated so I avoid that. I like my steaks medium rare so sometimes I'll intentially make a piece more rare than I like must so I can cook it to the right "doneness" the next day. Chicken/turkey/pork tends to be too dry for me if it's reheated and even spaghetti can be difficult to get just right. I don't think that means I'm not financially responsible, there are some things I just don't like to eat as leftovers.

My kids and husband don't like things like soup or chili so I don't cook those. Lasagna is only for one meal - it gets eaten up completely. My teenage DS LOVES it. He's like Garfield when it comes to Lasagna. LOL

My husband eats and eats and eats. My DD was getting in that habit too. So in order to have more portion control so DD wouldn't get very overweight, I started to cook only enough for each person to have one serving.

And I have to dish it out on the plates otherwise my husband will take most of it, leaving nothing for the rest of us.
So there are no leftovers at my house.
Wait, four people eat a lasagna in one sitting? Like, a lasagna pan lasagna? I'm completely fascinated. Seriously?

Actually, I was knida thinking that having a job right along so one doesn't get in to the position of "running out of money" would be the more financially responsible thing to do.

With the new glad vacum bags and microwave. No problem. Prior to the bags other tastes got into the food.

BINGO! One thing is not indicative. SIX related indicators are indicative of a particular mental attitude and pattern.

The number 1 reason people in the U.S. divorce is because of finances: how each spends, saves and their differences in their attitude toward money. The OP is teaching her daughter well to take that into consideration and maybe find someone more in line with her own attitudes & beliefs about money.
