Fun Things To Do With Leftover

The wonderful thing about leftovers is that you can put together another meal in 15 minutes or less. It can be a repeat of the same meal ( on clean plates, of curse), a variation, or a whole new creation.Everyone has leftovers. Even families with teenagers, occasionally have a few left overs, Other families eat so many leftovers, they never remember the original meal being prepared.

When you can find time to cook only once or twice a week, cooking extra is smart move. Even if you have a small family, go ahead and purchase a turkey breast or whole turkey, an entire roast, the largest chicken, an extra pound of ground beef, pork, or veal. Plan additional meals around the leftovers.

* Use cold turkey and chicken to make sandwiches and salads, or use what's left to make potpies, casseroles, or hash.
*Reincarnate roast beef as shepherd's pie, or use it to make fajitas, stir fry, or hot roast beef sandwiches with melted cheese.
* Shred leftover beef or pork and spice it up with your favorite barbecue sauce.
* Freeze overripe fruit and use for sorbets and smoothies.
* Save leftover vegetables to top a pizza, fill a frittata, or stuff a calzone.
