Leftovers

Sometimes it's easier to make dinner in large quantities. And if it's a meal I particularly like, it's great to be able to have it for lunch the next day. Two days sharing a common meal is about the extent of my desire, though. Once I have the same meal more than twice within a week or two, I'm done. Most of the time it's not a problem, but occasionally it seems like the leftovers keep multiplying within the tupperware.
So here's an ethical question: Is it worse to throw away food you know you wouldn't eat as leftovers, or is it worse to store it until it goes bad and throw it away?

I think both are acceptable.

What about the poor starving children in Africa. Then again buying more food helps the economy. I guess it boils down to how you feel about mold.

Ever thought of freezing it and having it another week? Seems like an easy solution.

I figured the freezer would be mentioned at some point. I don't really have a good argument against that. It just seems like it would be weird. But I should try it. It would probably work better for some foods than for others.
