    Chana masala is so good the next day, sometimes I think about not eating it when I make it = more leftovers

    I've been told I'm a freak of nature, but I really hate leftover pizza. Cold is gross and rubbery, microwaved is an abomination, and even if I take the time to fire up the oven, it's dry and flavorless.

    Chicken and Dumplings are great as leftovers. As far as least liked leftovers I would say most things fried but most of all eggplant fritters there is just nothing worth reheating those.
    It only hurts til the pain goes away........

    I'm with you on both of these...gently re-heated pizza can be even better than the first time as you can get the crust extra-crisp.

    Here's an old-school version:

    I was going to show a quicker, simpler version using a packaged masala, but I guess I never did a photo essay for that

    I really like pizza reheated on the grill, but I have also thought of experimenting with putting a glass of water in the microwave when reheating pizza. Apparently, it reduces the 'soggy pizza issue' but don't have any direct experience. I've seen that trick mentioned a handful of times though.

    I put it in a dry frying pan, with a lid, over low heat. takes about 8-10 minutes for however many slices your pan will hold. but comes out super-crispy and warm throughout.

    That's what I do, unless I am just eating it cold.

    mac-n-cheese (the real kind) is good like this...roll in a little flour and panfry.

    My likes and dislikes are directly influenced by:

    - the time of day
    - my level of exhaustion
    - drunkenness
    - desperation

    Combine all of the above, and I'll think nothing of eating the dregs of pu-pu platter that's been lurking in my fridge for a week(or more?). Duck sauce/hot mustard/soy sauce slurry= palate desensitizer. But if i'm well rested (which is rare), and feeling frisky, I'll go to great lengths to revitalize a plethora of items from the last couple meals. Think CHOPPED, but with better knives and more tattoos.
    Today is as good a day to die as any. Except for tomorrow. I have plans tomorrow.
