I couldn't agree more! We are having a friend over for lunch today who is vegetarian and I was trying to think what to have. I always have leftover rice and have everything else - just took some vegetable stock out of the freezer! This is lunch.

Thanks, Laury (love the name by the way - mine is Laurie)

It's not earth-shattering but it sure was good! I made a salad of baby greens, roasted red peppers, prosciutto, kalamata olives and water-packed mozzarella with a dressing of simply olive oil that was blended with garlic, lots of fresh basil, and kosher salt.

The next day I drizzled the oil on the inside of a baguette and put everything else on it and made a panino.

Oh, what's MY coolest thing with leftovers?

I would have to say the time at camp where we had two 5 litre buckets of cooked pork sausages and a huge tub of penne pasta that hadn't been oiled properly and was all stuck together. I chopped up both of them, trying to keep the pasta in rings as much as possible but there were several "chunks of tiny rings. I had a big pot of chicken stock that had been made the day before and just needed skimming so I did that, put it on the burner, added the meat, pasta, some celery, onion, carrots, corn and herbs and had an incredible pot of soup made out of stuff that would otherwise have been thrown out that day!

Everyone kept wanting the "kitchen sink" soup but it was a one-time because of the original goofs (too many sausages and icky pasta) were NOT repeated!

This is a great idea! Now I want to make potato skins just so I can have both meals!

For super bowl I made asada stuffed potato skins with salsa and cheese YUM. Well I made waaay too much asada and I also have all the potato that was scooped out to make skins. So yesterday I had asada tacos with the works. tomorrow we're having a meaty shephards pie outta the potatoes and beef!

Also everyonce in a while I make chicken with basil, garlic and ginger- we usually eat it with steamed rice. Then the next day we cut up left over chicken and toss it with pasta and peanut sauce, the steamed rice turns into spicy fried rice.

I LOVE LEFTOVERS

Pizza and omelettes are my "dumps" for leftover veggies and some meats (chicken, turkey, hamburger, etc). If I have leftover cream soups like tomato, potato etc and there is too little to freeze, I make bread out of them.

learned this from my aunt........take leftover beef roast (you could use pork roast as well) chop it up and add barbeque sauce......cook it on top of the stove for about 20 minutes and serve it over buns (if the sauce is very strong just add some water......sloppy joes voila....serve with a salad and a veggie......kids love it..........

I made a giant beef tenderloin for a special occasion and had about 6 of the most rare slices leftover.... the next day for lunch I cut the pieces into small strips and sautéed with some garlic and chopped onion in olive oil... added a little crushed red pepper and italian seasoning, then poured in some leftover tomato sauce and simmered for about 10 minutes. 2 Italian rolls later and we had THE BEST steak sandwiches ever.... melted provolone on top.... ok now I'm hungry.
