Getting the quantity right when cooking meals at home can be quite a task. Sometimes, the dish we cook may be greater in quantity than what is needed for one meal for the family. We then proceed to store our leftovers to be eaten the next day or for use in other dishes. So, how exactly should be the ideal way to store our leftovers in the refrigerator? Some people prefer to keep it in microwave-safe bowls while others use airtight boxes for the same. But we can all agree that the most complicated problems have the simplest solutions! Recently, a Twitter user shared a simple solution for storing leftover food in the fridge, and it will leave you amused. Take a look:

There is absolutely nothing wrong with this. Less dishes to clean and easy to reheat. Your roommate seems like a man of culture 😂😂😂— Reneé (@idgeeffoc) October 6, 2022
This is the only way to keep it because no faaltu bartan used so you don't have to wash any later. Plus, you can re-heat the food in this itself.
