“Dividing up dinner leftovers to send home with you & your sister!”
Dinner leftovers is a pretty basic term for what in other countries might qualify as enough carbs, protein, and veggies to feed a small army. As previously mentioned, my mother’s food insecurity runs high for herself as well as for others. One of my mothers first solutions to any problem is “Are you getting enough food?” And the most disappointing thing is that she’s usually right on the money. I snarfed beef and broccoli stir fry hot out the microwave ASAP the next day.
