1. Take home Left over chow mein from restaurant. My son rarely finishes all his food and we usually end up taking his left over home. It has been a life saver since i can pack it for his lunch in daycare the next day. or he can have it as a snack. This time we ended up with extra chow mein ( Chinese noodles) it was not enough to become his lunch. So i decided to become creative.
3. Broccoli stems saved in freezer.
4. Rotisserie chicken . we just had some wonderful friends over and i decided to have a simple friendly dinner. So i got 3 rotisserie chickens and cooked some vegetables for the side. At the end of the dinner, i ended up with lots of chicken parts an tons of chicken broth and juices plus some baked vegetables.
|Boiling chicken broth. Full of nutrients|
As far as rest of the chicken goes, i removed all the bones and ended up with a huge batch of tender meat and broth. I am going to use half for a Persian dish ( Fesenjoon) and the other half for another soup tomorrow.
Wonderful meals have been prepared from only left overs. Why waste, if it can be used. Did i mentioned the amount of nutrients in these meals?
Happy cooking with left overs.
