#683 Finding a Styrofoam container from last night’s restaurant dinner in your fridge

Curry in a hurryScope this scene.

End of the meal at the back of a dimly lit restaurant, your belly bursting with bowls of bread, free soda refills, sugary salad, and half a giant stir-fry, you’re thinking twice about the waiter’s offer to wrap up your meal. After all, the thought of one more forkful of soy-sauce drenched snow peas makes you gag and the image of lugging a drippy Styrofoam container to the movies ain’t appealing.

But there’s peer pressure.

Somebody chimes in with a “Oh come on, get it to go, you’ve got like half your meal left” and another helpfully adds “Think about it, you’ll probably eat it later tonight. Better than bar food.”

So you look around the table and quietly burp into your mouth before nodding to the waiter with a reluctant half-smile. And then you drag that doggie-bag around town and toss it in your fridge before bed, completely forgetting about it until you groggily look for breakfast the next morning.

When you peel open your fridge door the Styrofoam container is just beaming back at you like a treasure chest full of gold at the bottom of the ocean.

“Hello,” it seems to say. “I’ve been waiting.”

Your pupils dilate, your mouth starts watering, and you swipe a fork for a delicious cold and salty wake up call.

  1. Eww. I can’t imagine eating take-away like that for breakfast. :P

    But I get the gist. Too few places in my town use those styrofoam containers, though, thus robbing me of the awesomeness!

        1. Thanks for setting me straight. I don’t like hearing absolutes and so should not talk in them either!
          Chocolate- truse?! ;)

          1. I checked it out, but, as I could have guessed, it is only held in Australia’s capital/biggest cities. I not long enjoyed a weekend away in Sydney, and my funds are tapped out. But maybe one day!

              1. That’s right!! You did do one a few months back, didn’t you?!! So much fun! My second one is just weeks away and my third one hasn’t announced a day yet. Being colorful is awesome!! Of course I’m running a few more 5k’s in betweenm, but don’t anticipate as much fun as ending up a big rainbow at the end

  2. There’s a new, New York style, authentic Chinese food, without preservatives and all the other nasty chemicals, recently opened here. The last time we went there was so much food, best Chinese I ever have had, it was no doubt going home with us. I still have one styrofoam container in the freezer for a rainy day!
    It is safe to freeze styrofoam, I hope~.~

    1. I have no idea if its safe or not to freeze the styrofoam….. I’m going to google that right now………. watch out for freezer burns and those containers are more prone to bacteria and it doesn’t keep too long either.

  3. THIS IS THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!! You just don’t understand how excited I am when I have some Chinese leftover that I can stick in the fridge for the next day. The unfortunate thing is… the Chinese place close to home has been shut down twice this year due to health violations… so we will never go there again. I’ll drive twice as far to get some good Chinese.

  4. The only leftovers I eat for breakfast are pizza or breakfast leftovers. I can eat breakfast for dinner, but I can’t really eat dinner for breakfast…ewwww. LOL!
