Lunchtime Made Easy: 5 Dinners That Make the Best Leftovers

Dinners that make the best leftovers

Call me crazy, but I love leftovers. Most days I hardly have time to eat lunch, let alone make it, so knowing that I have yummy dinner leftovers waiting for me in the fridge to eat for lunch is pretty exciting. All I have to do is pop the container in the microwave for a couple of minutes and lunch is served!

Reynolds Disposable Heat & Eat Containers

I’m not a big fan of microwaving plastic, so I was happy to discover Reynolds™ Disposable Heat & Eat Containers at my local Walmart. Made with plant fibers, they are a great alternative to plastic. They are perfect for the microwave and the best part is there is no need to clean them since they are disposable.

The other night for dinner we had rotisserie chicken, steamed rice and broccoli. It was so easy to put the leftovers in our Reynolds™ Disposable Heat & Eat Containers.

My Secret Weapon for Leftovers

When I was ready to eat my leftovers, all I had to do was remove the plastic lid and microwave the container for a couple of minutes. So simple & yummy!

I love that these containers stack nicely and don’t take up a lot of space in the fridge. And they fit great in a lunch bag if you take your lunch on the go.
