We pulled all the leftovers out of the fridge and put them on the dining table. Then we took a small portion of whatever appealed and nuked it.

I had kale soup with pork, stew, and mousakka. DH had kale soup, mousakka, and pied pot. He had larger servings than I did.

I got some nice fresh hot dog buns so Dad and I will have hot dogs while we watch the Canadian Ladies' Curling Championships. It is shlushing (combo of snow and rain common to these parts) out and threatening to be snow so I didn't get out to do the shopping I wanted.

Glad to see I'm not alone in my left overs tonight!

Good to know quiche reheats well. I've been meaning to try making it sometime.

That reminds me, I've got a turkey breast and thigh buried in my freezer somewhere. A little mini Thanksgiving in the very near future sounds nice. Great inspiration in your pictures, Mama

I needed to do something with a handful of this and a handful of that. I made some fried rice with ham and pineapple. (This used up the ham that was just too tasty to let go bad.) I also made some baked pork egg rolls.

For dessert, cherry pie...in honor of President's Day! Okay, the cherry pie is mine, but I used a pre-made crust and frozen cherries. But I totally made those cherry shapes all by myself.

Thanks pacanis! It really hit the spot and I won't have to cook dinner for a day or 2

I think I'm going to make some multi-grain bread for Thanksgiving sandwiches tomorrow.

Baked tortellini, house salad and toasted sourdough with a nice glass of homemade Chardonnay :-)
