Old cookbook -section on new dishes from leftovers

why don't new ones do this? It is ingenious! I love the first paragraph!
"Never forget that the better the housekeeper the fewer the scraps. Try to gain a reputation for cleverly planned , use-up-as-you-go meals. "

recipes? That use stale bread, sour milk, stale cake, cold potatoes, fish, cooked meat, veges, rice, steamed pud and fruit. Not what yuo see in the modern cookbooks - unless anyone knows differently!

gaspodetwd, maybe posters can add a 'leftover' recipe or idea here?

I crumble the last two 'orphan' slices of Vogel's bread and mix with about 50g of grated cheese as a topping for casserole dishes. Makes a golden crust.
