Today’s quote comes from humorist and food writer Calvin Trillin. This quote strikes me as interesting because it’s so different from my upbringing. We didn’t really do leftovers (Tina is really weird about that stuff), so it’s interesting to me that there are families who subsist mostly on leftovers. Verrrrry interesting.
“The most remarkable thing about my mother is that for thirty years she served the family nothing but leftovers. The original meal has never been found.”
