While we all love freshly prepared and cooked food - ideally with high quality ingredients. However, there are some foods which manage to taste great, and sometimes better, when they're reheated or eaten as left-overs. So AnswerBank Asks:

Cold pizza for breakfast is excellent.
Mmmm, love cold pizza! But also love having turkey and stuffing sandwiches/left over evening buffet food for a week after Christmas!

Definitely roast chicken. forgot meatloaf.....I love it left over....used to have it as a sandwich as a kid.
Stew is the only thing I will eat from yesterday.
i´m a greedy so and so, so nothing usually gets leftover, i even end up eating her indoors unfinished meal most days
Roast dinner made into Bubble and squeak. Must contain parsnips though.
I used to live with someone who used to eat warmed up chinese food. If we had people round who had a take away and left their plate on the floor or where ever with scraps left etc. The morning after my flat mate would take every plate and scrape every last bit off everyones left over plate into the frying pan and eat it. This same person used underwear (not used) as a t towel and once he cooked fish fingers for both of us and just before serving he went off to the toilet. I listened for him washing his hands and he never did. When he got back he picked up every single individual fish finger (burning his fingers may I add) and putting them on a plate. I know I digressed but it was good to get it off my chest.
mmmmmmm, i love cold pizza, i think it tastes better the next day
