Because I am planning my weekly meals and just generally being more
aware of food vs money, I am finding that I don’t want the food I’ve
cooked to sit in the fridge until it goes bad. (You wouldn’t believe
how much food I used to throw away at the end of each week because
it had gone bad!)
Last week my co-workers and I ordered chinese take-out (paid for
with our “party fund”) and the next day we had tons of leftover
rice. I took all of the leftover rice home and put it in my freezer.
I made WAY too much pasta friday night, so I froze the leftovers. I
made a crockpot full of chili last week and had a huge bowl of it
leftover – that is now in the freezer.
The problem with freezing everything is that I am running out of
room in my freezer! I have 1/2 a pan of leftover cornbread. I was
originally going to put it in the freezer, but then I found a recipe
for cornbread pudding (aka Indian pudding) which is made with
Seeing that recipe got me thinking that there
must be OTHER recipes out there that call for leftovers.
Do any of you have leftover recipes or any suggestions on what to do
with leftovers besides putting everything in my freezer?
