I had 1-1/2 white eggplant to use up, some watercress, wild rice, fresh coriander...so I made this:

Stir-fried Eggplant and Tofu Recipe | MyRecipes.com

I left out the soy sauce and sugar. And added some lime zest, the corriander, watercress and once removed from the burner, added the juice of 1/2 lime. It was quite tasty. I was only about to eat 1/2 of it.

I sense a trend-leftovers and use 'em ups.

We have some leftover meat sauce from Easter's lasagna so that's going to be pasta sauce over penne rigate. Either some salad or a veggie along side.

ooh, that reminds me... I've got a container of lasagna sauce in the freezer from that half pan I made a couple months ago or so. I'm hoping the ricotta is still good, but if not, lasagna is in my near future anyway.
Thanks Andy.

I fell asleep while dinner was in the oven, so we had burnt chicken, burnt potatoes and mixed veggies.

Carol. Reminds me of my burnt grilled cheese on hotdog bun.

We're officially almost out of fridge leftovers, have 3 shrimp remaining. May spelunk something.

Hey, three shrimp and you could do a trial run of Snip's prawn pate.

YAY! I like the way you changed it out. Looks healthy & delish.

It is quite filling. I was only able to eat 1/2 of what I dished out. I guess I don't have to think about what I'm having for breakfast tomorrow! Now I have to make another trip to that store to get more extra-firm Tofu. For some reason, the stores near me only carry silken and firm.
