I am probably too late, but don't forget to sprinkle them with brown sugar too. Yum! Might as well have some sugar to go with the sausage and bacon.
For me tonight, I think it will be beef fajatas made with the left over roast beef from yesterday. Do you think it will work??? I have never used leftover roast for that, but it just sounds good tonight, and that leftover roast has to be eaten anyway...

I make fajitas from leftover steak. Not exactly a roast, but IMO fajitas are more about the seasonings and veggies.

Thanks! I am going to try it anyway. I am really hungry for the spices, the veggies, the tortilla...

Got the router replaced so I made him Parmesan Chicken, roasted potatoes and green beans.

I mixed the leftover taco meat with the leftover wildrice mixture. I added a sprinkle of water to let it steam on low. I tasted it, but it was fine as is. I ate a mug full and froze the rest.

DH didn't get called in so we had pizza. Dad's and mine was a bought one that I added cheese and toppings to. It has always been good for emergencies. But not so great today so I am going to stick to homemade. I am thinking of trying to freeze the prepped raw pizza for a fast meal. DH used gluten free bagels and liked it.

Just so you know-you can use leftover roast and make some pretty good fajitas. They turned out just fine, and more tender than the steak.

Mmmmmm that sounds great! I didn't have a chance to go to the store for the bacon, so I'll have to do that next time.
