What is your favorite leftover for breakfast?

 

I'd probably have to go with pizza. Cold pizza is awesome.

See, now I think you're confusing dice for sports teams.

 

The 5-11 athletes on that [field|rink|court] 500 miles away definitely need me to be wearing my lucky socks if they are going to succeed!

 

The psychology of superstition is pretty interesting to me. From my understanding, it's a direct result of our hyperactive pattern recognition capabilities. And these are a result of a world where seeing a threat where none existed was a minor cost but missing a real threat could mean death, so the biases were set very strongly for finding patterns.

 

And when there isn't really anything that you can do to affect things (dice rolls, battlefields, sporting events), we tend to keep looking for patterns until something shows up.

 

All of which is arguably less fun than "lucky" dice/jersey/bullet/whatever, but there you go.

Leftovers tend to be lunch and dinner/supper food, not breakfast food for me. To the extent that I will often eat an early lunch rather than have breakfast at all if what I'm planning on is leftovers.

 

Note that this isn't really a conscious choice on my part.

I love leftover asian food for breakfast. Or pasta. Reheated pasta is amazing breakfast.

Question for 16 January 2020, in honor of @Rahz

Do you have a "lucky" or "unlucky" set of dice? And what do you do with them?

 

I only have a few full sets of D&D dice and there's no significant difference in them. My D6s are difficult to distinguish but often love to betray me. I'm one of those people that seems to regularly have bad luck on the dice. Combine that with the kid's luck and I have a lot trouble in competitive games against them. I throw more lows and they throw more highs leading to massacres on my forces regularly.

Pizza, although I tend to save left overs for lunch.

It would have to be leftover breakfast. For example, waffles, pancakes, biscuits or some other item you can't make just one of.  Sometimes I will throw leftover vegetables or meat into an omelette.  Assuming I wake up in time to make breakfast and don't skip it and go straight for lunch.

I'm not much on eating before noon or so now, but when I was young & foolish my Mom's macaroni salad was my favorite breakfast item.

Later on it was leftover & reheated pizza...eating pizza cold is an atrocity.

Probably the previous night's pizza.  Though Publix chicken wings are a close second.

3 egg omelet stuffed with whatever supper leftovers I had from the night before. Sometimes this works out great, like when I've made German food the night before. Chopped up potatoes, schnitzel, and spaetzle in an omelet is awesome. Sometimes it's a little iffy. Like with leftover Chinese food. It just does not work well with eggs and toast. Sometimes it just defies reason. Like adding heaps of chili to the eggs while they're cooking produces a surprisingly tasty breakfast and is much less messy than you would imagine. Last night we made a giant batch of Moroccan chicken with broccoli and green olives in rice. Enough to last us through the weekend. I'll probably try and put some of that in an omelet tomorrow morning. Could be interesting. Could be something I immediately regret. But I won't know until I try it!

I'd personally categorize it as suboptimal, but not an atrocity, but that's just a spectrum position thing.

 

Hint for reheating pizza: Cover the pizza in the microwave with a sheet of baking parchment (to prevent sticking), then place a wet sheet of paper towel over the whole thing. The increased humidity will much reduce the propensity of the crust to turn hard.

Who the elf has leftovers? In my household there must have been a fire or similar catastrophe if all the saucepans aren't licked clean.

 

Mind you, 30+ years ago I'd probably have said:" Beer!"

Cold Pizza!!  Though leftover veggies and pretty much any meat can also be chopped up and mixed with eggs to make a wonderful breakfast/brunch as well.

Reheated Chinese is /lunch/.
