Making Use of Leftovers

August 29th, 2013 at 01:04 am

It's pretty darn hot here in the Midwest. And cooking isn't something I want to do a lot of, not to mention eating big meals.

But, I don't want to go out every night or eat cold cuts.

Ah, the quandry. We had pork roast the other night. Not a huge amount left, but I absolutely hate wasting good food.

So, supper tonight was onion, bell pepper, mushrooms sauted with the pork that was cut into small chunks, made a sauce with a little butter and flour and broth, and put it on bowtie pasta. Since neither of us were super hungry, there is enough for two lunches.

DH planted tomatoes and he kept telling me he didn't understand why this one plant had huge tomatoes, but they never seemed to ripen. Seems they are some other type of tomato...kind of yellowish with red streaks. We studied them and said I thought they were a different kind so we picked them, washed, them and sliced them. Inside they have a splash of red in the middle with the yellow outside. They tasted just like a red tomato. What a nice surprise!

Hope if you are in the hot temps you are staying cool!

    It has cooled a little here lately. Still hot but not heat-wave hot. Dinner sounded yummy!

    From metro Chicago here.

    Yesterday was a stirfry w/leftover chicken.

    Today is a salad plate w/hard boiled egg and sunflower seeds for lunch. Dinner is some chicken drumsticks i sauted yesterday (before making the stirfry) with a veg and tater tots in the toaster oven (Bears game tonight so tailgate type food).

    I made baked salmon with bowtie pasta (butter, pepper, salt and parmesan cheese). It must've taste good because there were no leftovers!
