It's only the second Wednesday of 2013 that I've attempted to post a recipe for "Whatcha having for dinner Wednesday" and I have already switched things up by asking what you're having for leftovers! I love leftovers. I can't help it. In part it's my frugal nature that draws me to eating the same thing over and over until there are no more leftovers to be had. I'm grateful that my hubby tolerates my creative meal mixing as I attempt to utilize leftovers in a variety of ways. I also love a meal that gets better as leftovers. You know, when the seasonings really have a chance to meld and harmonize?
In an attempt to clean out our fridge and stretch our grocery budget a bit we had leftovers tonight. My sweet friend Licia kept HB on Monday so I could rest, run errands, etc. and made us dinner as well. In fact, she made so much that we had her yummy meal on Monday and tonight - it was a shredded pork mix with black beans and kidney beans. Yummy! We made our own version of Chipotle's burrito bowl tonight complete with rice, the shredded pork mix and an array of salsas and toppings.
I'd love to hear your tips and tricks on stretching your grocery budget or how you creatively incorporate leftovers into a second meal or three. Happy Wednesday!
