Rights Of Food Ownership Extend To Home Refrigerator, Reminds Child

A delicious mac and cheese was not to be forfeited.
The kids understand that when we eat in restaurants what each person orders "belongs" to him or her while we are seated at the table (unless we eat family style, which usually happens in Asian restaurants).

But when leftovers come home what happens to them? Who gets to eat them? Usually I do, unless, of course, there are specific instructions indicating otherwise.

I figure there should be a 24-hour rule. If the food is in the fridge more than 24 hours then it should be for whoever wants to eat it.

I'm glad the kids want to protect their leftovers, as it makes me feel eating in a restaurant is not being taken for granted.
