"You're making too much food." I always hear this while preparing for holidays and gatheringsLeftover flowers from the garden and field.

There is no such thing. It all gets eaten within a couple of lunches and dinners, and before you know it, time to cook again. Plus you get to send goodies home with other busy people, so that they can skip a day over the stove, or at a fast food place.
This was the packed fridge about 7PM on the 4th of July.

I love leftovers, especially on busy week-ends. You know something good will be waiting for you after a long day outside, and there will be little effort in having to prepare it.
Not even a day later, there is space opening up in the fridge, and by dinner, we'll be in great shape. The corn I cut off the cob is going to become corn "chowda" tomorrow. Yumm!
