A Reheat is a day we re-run a classic What To Eat For Lunch column because I'm...OK, I'll just say it. I'm probably still in bed. But Reheat Day is what happens when you made or otherwise inherited a large amount of food. Home-cooking still beats anything you can pick up around the workplace. Here are ten ideas to cook with leftovers in mind.

I'm So Excited For Christmas Ham Leftovers

That I'm plotting my course of action right now

I was singing in the shower this morning, replacing lyrics with phrases like "glaze a giant ham" and "eating lots of ham" and...the like. So I thought since I can't even concentrate on my Christmas Eve morning shower cocktail, I'd plot my course of action for after tomorrow's leftover ham has a good night's sleep in the fridge. It thought it was done. Psh.

To me, there is no greater or more universally appealing blank slate than a plain old pile of shredded leftover chicken, just waiting for your bidding. Will the binder be mayo — Japanese or American? Or possibly yogurt — regular or Greek? What's the crunch element? What does it go on? The answers to these questions and more, in today's edition of 11 Reasons You Should Eat Chicken Salad For Lunch.

Leftover Makeover: Make This Before The Very Last Ham Is Gone

Unless it already is, in which case, well-played.

Even if it doesn't taste funny, there's something about 5-day-old bird that doesn't scream "eat me," unless you're still in college and truly don't care, etc. But ham — the ham is super-salty, practically cured at that point, and lasts way longer (especially if it's still on the bone). I don't know the science behind it, but keeping meat on the bone will definite prolong its life for a day or two, making this insane fried rice recipe the star of today's lunch menu.

From So Good Blog, the folks who brought us the true-to-its-name feature "Deep-Fried Everything:" deep-fried mashed potato bites.

3 New Ways to Liven Up That Boring Soup

Don't fall into a rut just cause it's soup season
Nov 14, 2012 12:31 pm

Yesterday was my first soup-based lunch since the temperature dropped. It was lame. The weather and the soup experience as a whole, just depressing.
