Oh, the Suspense!

I ate the hamburger.

And realized an eternal truth: no matter what you do, french fries really aren't that good the second time around. It's amazing how a food item could be soggy, yet thoroughly dry at the same time.

Kevin would be proud. He complains that I don't ever eat leftovers and eat too much Bento Xpress. I argue that when he's at work he gets to buy a freshly prepared lunch every day, so why shouldn't I? Hey, it gets me out of the house. Besides, certain items (like soup, for example) are better the second day, while other items (read: french fries) just don't live up to their former glory.

I find that more often than not, I use my oven rather than my microwave to reheat leftovers. It does help keep everything from getting soggy. Perhaps you could revive your fries this way.

I have to agree with Shelby (which I'm sure shocks you all). French fries are always gross when reheated. Its the way it is. They're mushy and yet oddly dry.

I think, to solve the leftover issue, that Kevin should take the leftovers to work for lunch, leaving Shelby with no choice but to go out for her lunch! :-)
