I love making things out of leftovers… It makes me think I am not
wasting as much.
My children are 1, 3, 5, and 10. Between them all, they really go
back and forth on their portions, so while I try to make just what we
need, sometimes I end up with 3 full servings leftover.
Some of the things I reuse in creative ways are, squished up
enchilladas as nacho toppings for lunch (sounds kind of gross but soo
yummy with the chips and added cheese), chicken and rice to fry up in
tortillas for lunchwraps, chicken in mayo for sandwhiches, rice and
gravy for a quick haystacks (I usually add a leftover meat on the
side with this), when I have a lot of spaghetti I put it in a glass
dish and add chedder cheese to the top and reheat it in the oven for
a fast spaghetti casserole.
If anyone else has any suggestions for leftovers, please feel free to
add them to the list. My kids really dig their heals in about eating
leftovers just as leftovers sometimes, so the more ways I have to
spruce things up, the better.
I would love some ideas for reusing meatloaf, pork chops, and beef
