Leftovers

If you’ve navigated the minefield of a family feast, the least you can do is make the most of your spoils. Turkey — along with chicken, capon, Cornish game hen, quail, goose, duck and pork — has a higher proportion of unsaturated fats in its fat tissue than beef or lamb. It has nothing to do with how they look in that dress (unsaturated fat is actually better for you than saturated fat), but unsaturated fat does produce off, stale, cardboard-like flavors in meat that’s been stored and reheated.

Mirror, Mirror

Checking yourself in the mirror is something we all do several times a day. We trust mirrors to give us an accurate reflection. They tell us if there’s spinach in our teeth, or if our shirts look bad with our shoes. Mirrors are also made to flatter and distort, with convex shapes to make us look taller and thinner or tints to reflect warm tones and give our skin a healthy rosy hue. It took humanity thousands of years to go from catching a glimpse of themselves in a bowl of water to that first perfect mirror, but we’ve been playing with our reflection ever since.
