Best "leftover lunch" you ever brought to work

So today while im sitting in my cube at a software company, i cant help but be uber excited for noon. To me that meant lunch time, which also means last nights leftovers. My dinner last night was a wine&cheese dinner...so lucky for me, todays lunch consists of: Homboldt fog, formage d'affinois, prima donna and ossauraty cheeses...with a side of grapes.
So i ask you, what is the best leftover lunch you have ever brought to work?

I always love it when I get to pack steak sandwiches for lunch after having steak for dinner! I also get irrationally excited about leftover frittata, which is almost better at room temperature than it ever is while warm.

I'm with Nozlee, leftover frittata, sliced on rustic bread or baguette w/ mayo is my idea of packed lunch heaven.

Leftover meatloaf with brown rice! I also get really excited when I made bacon and leek quiche the night before. Oh, and my homemade focaccia with lentil soup.

Leftover lasagna, or professional pizza - not the frozen store kind which is not yet perfected.

I work from home,so it's easier for me.I love left over baked pasta,pot roast sandwich with lots of ketchup,and this "vegetable pudding" I make is always better the next day...It's like a heavy souflé with chopped vegetables and bacon in it.I know,I know!I sound incoherent right now,but it is what it is.Also my mother makes THE BEST meatloaf,but she's almost never in the mood to do it,and most of brazilian food is better the next day:especially feijoada.

Anything that can be put in between two slices of bread, or eaten cold is a winner for me. I like re-heated left overs, but the convenience of a sandwich is unmistakable for me.

I love leftover home made greek-style salad (I include zucchini, broccoli, etc., whatever is on hand), alone or with chunks of chicken.
