Depends on what they are, but I typically just reheat them and have them for lunch. If I have leftover chicken breast I make sandwiches using horseradish and dijon mustard. Leftover beef from a roast I usually make gratin parmetier, which is from a Jaques Pepin recipe, just cook the beef in broth and sauteed onions til very tender, add mashed potatoes on top, dry bread crumbs, pats of butter to brown it and then just bake it. Any other veggies can be added to this.

One of my favorites is if we've grilled steak the night before, I slice it super thin, add garlic, and as many veggies as I can, a bit of seasonings and stir fry it. Then I serve it over pasta with just a tiny bit of olive oil.

I always eat my leftovers for lunch the next day. If it's bland, I'll just put some type of hot sauce on it

If we have meatloaf or something of that nature, I'll slice it and make sandwiches out of it or roll it up in a tortilla.

when we do tri tip, any left overs are re-cycled into a fry pan with butter, sauteed mushrooms, sliced onions and some knorr Au jus with a little port thrown in...We then put this mix on top of a buttered french roll we've put under the broiler.. Left over asparagus, or artichoke hearts, brocolini are sauteed with onion, garlic, marjoram, chopped parsley, then mixed with eggs, parmesan and baked up and served as fritatta..Left over chicken, made into pot pies..

Leftover salmon makes a great Alfredo...add some frozen peas when cooking the fettucine for a one dish meal. I don't use all the butter and cream...I just make a simple white sauce with skim milk and stir in a little lowfat cream cheese and fresh grated parmesan.

leftover boiled shrimp go into a quick gumbo. I save the shells, and boil them for the broth, add some sliced smoked sausage, and use the Zatarain's Gumbo mix. I know using a mix sounds like heresy, but it's honestly pretty darned good, especially if you add a pinch of file when you serve it.

Leftover chicken or turkey goes into rice, pasta, enchiladas, chicken salad, or chef salad.
Leftover pork roast is great for BBQ sandwiches or enchiladas.
And beef or venison go for stew.

I'm working on something for leftover fried fish...My husband is always afraid we won't have enough, and fries a bathtub full. It's good reheated in the oven the next day, but after that, it tends to become catfood.
If any of you have ideas, please let me know.
