Seriously, that’s what I’m thankful for today.  *grin*  This week, I have ROCKED the leftovers…lol. 

I hate leftovers normally, but this week, I made them WORK and I LOVE that!  Not to mention, it made suppers this week, like, way easier! 

I took my Crockpot Italian Chicken to the neighbors on Saturday night and we had 4 pieces leftover.  So Tuesday night, I heated up a couple of those and made a pot of rice to go with them.  Wednesday, I shredded up the remaining two pieces and put one of them in the freezer for later, and the other (with a little of the leftover sauce), went into something kinda like Pampered Chef’s Chicken Ring.  I used two tubes of the crescent rolls and instead of triangles, I pinched two triangles together to make squares and put a pile of shredded saucy chicken, a scoop of leftover rice, and a sprinkling of leftover diced peppers (extra from Tuesday’s soup) and then closed them up and baked them. 

My rice hatin’ dislikin’ hubby and son ate them right up and I was in love with the fact that it was yummy and didn’t taste ANYTHING like leftovers. 

And today, I had leftover soup for lunch (Pioneer Woman’s Corn and Cheese Chowder from Tuesday) and it was SOOO good…again. 

And tonight I made broccoli and reheated the rest of the leftover rice from Tuesday night (and made sandwich-y things for my non-green-cooked-veggie eating boys).  LOL. 

If I could do that EVERY week, boy howdy…I might not hate leftovers anymore!!!

  1. I'm hungry! I'm still thinking about that soup and have saved the recipe on my "favorites". It's great when leftovers work out like that. I don't mind eating the same meal twice in a row. (Like dinner and then lunch.) But it sure is nice to mix it up a bit now and again. Glad it worked out, like that, for you this week. :o) Happy Trails!
