I am very weird about leftovers. As it so happens, my husband has learned that I will not eat something if I think it’s been in the fridge too long. Let’s just say, I don’t like playing Leftover Roulette.
I don’t remember always being this way, I do however remember it getting worse as my child got older. I suppose I just have an aversion to older food after the many times I’ve found it stuck to the bottom of the floormat in the car or after playing “where is the smell coming from?” for days on end when my daughter was little. I just… like things fresh, do you blame me?
This actually is a term. It is called Leftover Roulette left-oh-ver roo-let // Deciding what’s in the food container in the back of the fridge, when it’s from and if it’s still good. You can find out all the details about this term and many others in the Clorox® Ick-tionary.
