If the food was cooked correctly the first time, reheating it causes it to be overcooked.

There's a good chance that you've had leftover meat in a restaurant. Not everything in a restaurant was actually made that day.

I love leftovers. Some food do taste better after being frozen and reheated. I sometimes leave leftovers on purpose especially if it's my favorite food and I love the idea of still having my favorite food to eat the next day lol

Oh and friend rice IS made with leftover rice. You can't make a good fried rice with fresh steamed rice, it has to be cooked the day before.

The question isn't whether his loans are current; rather, the question is whether they both have the same tolerance for debt -- and I personally wouldn't saddle myself to a guy who wasn't frugal with money. It'd be a constant source of irritation between us.

In contrast, if he were forced to take out college loans BUT was also working and economizing so that he could take out the smallest amount possible, that'd be a different story.
Exactly! This is exactly what her line of thinking is. They've been going out for awhile now, every weekend, and she's reaching the point where it's "do or die", as she doesn't date just to "date"...if she doesn't see potential, she's not going to want to continue to date him, and possibly "lead him on".

She discussed it with me because she talks about everything with me...I've been fostering that type of relationship since she was a little girl. I'm very blessed. Plus, we were sitting AT the dinner table chit-chatting after dinner when she texted him to ask him about the soup, and I saw her face when she read his response.

I don't get it, are you saying she was mortified? Horrified?

If someone simply sharing the opinion that they don't prefer leftovers causes this type of reaction, well, I'd hate to see what happens when she gets truly horrific news.

No, I wasn't saying she was mortified or horrified. Where would you get that idea? She made a face...and I know her faces. It wasn't high drama. It was just a face, which prompted me to ask her what he said.

He didn't say he didn't PREFER leftovers. He said he didn't EAT leftovers. Big difference.

To me, one sounds reasonable the other sounds way too snobbish for someone who is living on loans - meaning he currently has no money to buy food. Ever heard the expression "beggars can't be choosers?" While he wasn't exactly begging, his financial situation puts him in that situation.

Since my kids are college aged I know LOTS of kids in this age group. It's would be very unusual for them to turn down food. Even kids that were very picky a few years ago, and probably will be again, are not. They are simply more concerned about their pocketbook than their taste buds.

It's not about the leftovers. It's about an apparent lack of concern about finances.

I've been talking about this with my DD (she's in college, but lives at home) for the last few days because of something that happened between her and the guy she's dating...it's been bugging her, and I can definitely understand why, lol. The guy she's dating is a college student...they've been dating about a month and a half but aren't officially "in a relationship" yet (he wants it, but she's going slow). He lives in his own apartment (no roommate), drives a very nice truck, goes to school full-time, doesn't work, doesn't come from a wealthy family, and has said that he's "living on loans". He also recently mentioned to her that he needs to find a job because he's running out of money. Hmmm...okay.

Well, she feels sorry for him because he doesn't cook at all, and he eats out a lot (might explain why he has no money, lol) and doesn't get home-cooked meals. The other day I made a HUGE pot of really yummy soup. We had so much leftover, that she mentioned to him she had this incredible soup that her mom had made, and he responded back via text that it sounded fabulous. She then texted him and offered to put some in the freezer for him. His response? "Well, IDK because I don't eat leftovers!" WTHeck? She was pretty taken aback...I mean geez, the guy is a poor college student and turns down a home-cooked meal because it's leftovers? Everybody knows soup tastes better the next day anyway! She's a bit stubborn and wanted to know what his reasoning was, and he said that food usually doesn't taste good when frozen and/or reheated. BALONEY! This morning, more as a joke than anything else, I googled, "people who don't eat leftovers" and found this article:

http://www.savingadvice.com/articles...leftovers.html

It makes a lot of sense (and it's definitely how we live). I showed it to her, and now she's thinking he's probably NOT all that financially responsible (considering the leftover issue, plus other things she's noticed)...and I have to agree.
I don't believe the choice to eat leftovers defines a person's financial responsibility, but the attitude of "living off loans" does.

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.

In the restaurant I work at as part of my classes for my culinary degree, the sauces, dressings, some desserts, some soups, and occasionally some meat will have been prepared on a Monday and used again in the restaurant for the rest of the week.

So, yup. Leftovers!! The majority of the time things are cooked fresh, but when you go to a restaurant, don't even think for a second that all the food you're eating was made fresh that day.

I only eat leftovers that re-heat well, some things obviously do better than others. Now that I have a toaster oven I do eat more leftovers than I used to as somethings that suck after being nuked taste pretty good when heated in the toaster oven (pizza is a great example).

Fortunately DH is a human garbage disposal so all leftovers get eaten, just usually by DH rather than myself.

Okay. Let me make myself clear since apparently I was not:

The leftover meat I've had in leftovers in PEOPLE'S HOMES, including my own, has invariably been dry or tough. I'd guess the reason is this:

If I'd had leftover meat that tasted fine in people's homes, then I would not have a negative attitude toward it. Since I've had dry and tough meat in leftovers in people's homes, I do have a negative attitude toward leftovers that involve meat.


If I had dry or tough meat in a restaurant, which I honestly do not remember happening with any frequency, I would send it back or ask for the meal to be comped because I'm not paying my hard-earned money for food that has clearly not been prepared properly.

We very seldom have leftovers at my house. When we do, I'll have them for lunch the next day but there's usually not much left.

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.

Does everyone have to read SO MUCH into every little thing on the Dis?

I guess so, because that makes it easier to judge folks.

Try this for an explanation:

The kid doesn't like soup. He made a polite remark saying it sounds "fabulous." Now he is told he is going to be brought soup, we're even going to bring so much you'll have to put some in the freezer.

Now he's a young guy, maybe not the quickest on his feet and instead of saying, "I don't like soup", (and then having to explain his "fabulous soup" polite comment), he blurts out, "I don't like leftovers." Now, he's thinking this gets him off the hook without, hopefully, insulting new squeeze's mom. UH OH.

Well, welcome to the Dis kid, because you are now in it up to your waist.

Now it's judge judge judge, question your upbringing, call you ungrateful, let's pile on your parents too since you obviously weren't raised right.

Does anyone anywhere think there might possibly be another explanation for what he said?

Ummm no. He's obviously a financially irresponsible, loan-livin, eatin out, nice truck drivin, drain on society. He's doomed to a life filled with debt and financial irresponsibility and OP's DD better run and run fast before he destroys her and her future too.
