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.
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!!!
