Organic Leftovers: Today’s Special

Do you save leftovers? What do you do with them? Do they sit in your refrigerator until they are no longer recognizable and then you throw them out? You lose so much money throwing food away and it is wasteful. Plan meals that revolve around your leftovers. For example, if your family has chicken and veggies one night for dinner and you have both leftovers, add them into a stir fry and serve over rice the next night. Whenever the mister cooks a whole organic chicken, he boils down the carcass with onions, carrots, and celery and uses it as a stock for his super yummy chicken matzo ball soup. In fact, that is what we are having for dinner tonight! Yum.

What are your leftover recipes?

Do you eat leftovers, what are your faves?

    I always save them…usually eat them…if they go stale for some reason, not rotten mind you, I will either compost them or “donate” them to the wildlife in my yard under the birdfeeder station and by morning they are usually all gone! LOL

    We usually have 1 or 2 servings of leftovers. I don’t really turn them into anything else, I just bring them to work and eat them for lunch. My favorite leftover is chili, my least favorite is mac and cheese.

    Hi one4earth,
    Great ideas. We do the same, we use our indoor composter if it goes bad…but almost always it gets eaten….usually by Jayson @ midnight. lol.

    Hi Suz,
    That is a great point. Sometimes Jayson will make more than necessary, simple because he wants to have the leftovers for lunch the next day…much easier than trying to put together a lunch for work.

    Meat loaf was always a hard one for me. I like to sautee some peppers and onions and put a piece or two of meat loaf with ketchup and the onions in a burrito shell. Yummy and great for lunch.

    Hi Dena, Leftovers for lunch really are the best. xo.
