What do you call a big pot of miscellaneous leftovers?

Some households have strategies for using up leftovers. For instance, periodically they'll combine whatever's available into a casserole.

I'm afraid that years of making smoked salmon-cream cheese role may have dulled his skills and strangled his spirit. I want to be ready to help pull him out of his waking matrix-esque nightmare but I just don't know enough about it.
