How many times do you eat "repeats"?

Repeats as leftovers?
Or the same meal cooked freshly over and over again?

Unless we have leftovers or purposely make a double batch of something, we rarely have the same meal in a 2 month period. Leftovers are generally eaten for breakfast or lunch.

All the time.

When we like something, I remake it.

I rarely have leftovers any more; my family of 5 including three teenagers tends to eat up the entire meal and then go make themselves sandwiches. If there is something left, my daughter usually eats it for lunch the next day.

Repeats as in the same meal again...I tend to start repeating favorite dishes in the weekly menu after 3-4 weeks.

I rarely eat repeats, because I improvise every one of my meals. That's probably why I couldn't ever give an exact recipe of food I cook. I like to cook the same thing in many different ways, but that doesn't mean that I will eat the same meat or fish every day. I don't have weekly/monthly menus that repeat exactly every so often.

I make one large batch of food for lunches and weekday snacks and eat the same lunch for five days. I alternate 3 breakfasts for the week. Dinners are all different each day. This saves me some money, time and planning. Also, I eat very differently than my husband. I am a health nut, pescetarian (but mostly vegetarian with fish 1-2x week and very little dairy or eggs), and he is a total junk food addict and loves meat, potatoes, and no vegetables. So I make my healthier dishes for breakfasts and lunches for myself, but because I am one person, it's just easier to make a batch and eat it over the week than have different food every day. I still make a healthy dinner for the two of us but he can eat his other stuff the other two meals for himself. Though he often picks around the fruits and vegetables I make for dinner lol.

I make a lot of new dishes as far as recipes and experimentation, but i have some favorites/repeats I make often too in my rotation.

Let's just say I rarely throw anything out unless it has spoiled. That being said, it depends on how much I make and why. If there is just a little left over I will save it and either have it for lunch or combine it with something else left over and make a different meal out of whatever it is. When I make something like spaghetti or soup I intentionally make enough to freeze some. We do not eat repeats more than twice. If we have that much I will freeze it for use much later. This is why I make a menu every week and try to stick to it. That way we have something different every night. I have to admit there are times, usually at least once a week when my menu and I go our separate ways. Tonight is one of those times.

Repeats??

I subscribe to the theory it’s always a brand new day

So I’m always eating something for the first time ��

If yesterday’s food is being enjoyed today
And possibly tomorrow
It’s more of an enhancement than a repeat

Some foods like road kill are best the first time

I can't eat leftovers for medical reasons.

I repeat my menu every week. We're pretty limited by my food allergies and my daughter's food allergies, and my husband is picky about eating anything that might cause gas when he's got to work the next day, so there's not a lot of room for trying new things.
