Idiom of the Week – “Leftovers”


Now that Thanksgiving is upon us this week, it’s time for students at our English Center in Miami to understand the importance of leftovers.  When we are done eating, whether it be at home or in a restaurant, there will inevitably be leftovers.  If you’re in a restaurant, you can ask the waitstaff to provide you with a small box so you can take your leftovers home.  If you are eating at home, you can simply put your leftovers in containers in the fridge for the next day.  Frequently, we will take our leftovers to work (or school!) the next day for lunch.

Leftovers are obviously the food from the previous day that wasn’t eaten.  There’s no need to throw it away!  Last night’s dinner can be today’s lunch!
