What’s Your Favorite Leftover Lunch?

What’s your favorite leftover lunch? My husband’s is lasagna. Please write and let us know!

Here’s my move: Go to Duckworth’s Bistrot and, for the first course, order Chef Ken’s sublime Crispy Polenta with grilled portabella mushrooms, spinach, and creamy mushroom sauce. This is fairly filling. For the main course, ask for a full serving of their famously fabulous Lobster Risotto, which is served with a medley of fresh seasonal vegetables. You will be so full after only eating a third and won’t possibly be able to have another bite. No worries though because it makes the most magnificent leftover lunch the following day!

Notice all the chunks of lobster meat. Duckworth’s Lobster Risotto is so chock-filled with Captain Joe’s fresh-caught lobster, you won’t have any trouble partitioning off some for your sumptuous leftover lunch.
