You may be thinking, “What is a Planned-Over?” I first heard that term about 10 years ago. Basically, it’s when we intentionally cook an extra quantity of food so we have it for future meals. It’s a creative term used to rid leftovers of their traditional bad image. It’s also a smart way to reduce energy and save cooking time for those “planned-over” meals. I’ve grown to love the concept and the term. When I say it in conversation, I usually get a puzzled look complete with the nose crinkle. Once the term is explained, the response is usually “Oh, that’s smart,” or “Oh, I do that too.”
