7 Best Leftovers to Eat Cold

There are many days, especially weekends, when my breakfast and lunches are comprised of leftovers from the night before. I hate to waste food and often wrap up uneaten portions and store them in the fridge for later. Surprisingly, there are a lot of leftovers I don’t even reheat to eat the next day. I swear, there is nothing better than cold pizza. (I think a pizza chain ought to try serving it cold someday, it would be a huge hit!) I also love cold noodles, sandwiches, and more. If you are looking for new ways to enjoy your dinner, here are a few leftovers you will love!

    If you have cooked shrimp and served it hot the night before set some aside for lunch the next day! Cold cooked shrimp is delicious when served on a cracker with cheese or with cocktail sauce.
