Oh, the joy of leftovers! How I love to swing wide the door of my refrigerator and see bins of imagined leftover faces smiling back at me.
I realize that there are some who can’t stand the thought of eating “old” food. For you, I propose not leftovers, per se, but food that is reimagined into another meal. Hopefully, that sounds a lot more approachable if you’re not into leftover, leftovers. If you’re a fan like me, this week is made for you.
Bake a couple of loaves of bread on Sunday to go with soup to use up leftover ham or for sandwiches to make the most of what remains of turkey dinner. Don’t forget about the the odds and ends you didn’t cook! The extra sweet potatoes intended for a casserole or that pie pumpkin you didn’t need can find new life as twice-baked potatoes or pumpkin chili.
I even tossed in a non-leftover recipe for salmon to make the leftover haters among us happy.
