Seriously? It’s almost Thanksgiving? How on Earth did that happen. OK, OK, I can do this. I have green beans and a coupon for a turkey roast. I. Can. Do. This.
Thanksgiving is still not over in our house. You see, when you buy a 9-pound (smallest we could find) organic, grass-fed turkey for a group of six people who don’t like turkey much, you have leftovers. Lots of leftovers. So, I preplanned. I stripped the turkey as soon as we were done, tossed the bones […]
If you’re like most families in the U.S., you have a lot of leftover turkey (or tofurky), stuffing, potatoes, green beans and other sides. So, what do you do with it all?
It’s almost Easter and the Easter Bunny is hopping over to our house today with these delicious Carrot Cake Pancakes. This recipe was pretty simple (and healthy). And I’m completely in love with the Maple-Cinnamon Cream Cheese Spread on top. I’ve been eating the leftover spread on toast. Yum. Carrot Cake Pancakes Ingredients 3 ounces Cream […]
I tend to hoard canned pumpkin when it’s available ever since that freeze a couple years back made it difficult to find year-round. I opened up a can recently for something and had some leftover and blundered upon a recipe in my head that turned out great for myself and the kids. It was one […]
Day 336. It’s our last day of leftover “turkey” and I decided to make something that the kids should love: Vegetarian Turkey Mac and Cheese. This is a pretty simple dish using leftover Quorn Turk’y Roast (or Tofurky for a vegan version), fresh carrots and roasted onions. I’m also using a blend of Homemade Cheese […]
Day 329. Thanksgiving salad is the perfect way to enjoy leftovers. After a day of culinary debauchery, we’re going to take a break this evening and have our leftovers mixed into a green leafy salad. I think this will be light and delicious and may put a dent in some of our leftovers. You can […]
Day 116. What on earth can you do with all those leftover dyed boiled eggs? In my house, deviled eggs are a big hit. To spice things up (at the risk of possible disdain of my traditional deviled egg-loving husband), I’m making Mexican Deviled Eggs this year with our leftover rainbow of eggs. Another possibility […]
I am participating in Project: Food Budget and the Pantry Challenge at Goodcheapeats.com. I will be continuing my series on leftovers casserole, or whatever Frankenstein Leftovers Creation I make out of my pantry and my fridge leftovers every Thursday. This week, we spent $22 for groceries. That puts our monthly actual spending at $352, with a […]
Day 27. I based this recipe loosely of The Flying Biscuit’s (an Atlanta restaurant) Potato and Kale Soup recipe. But, I’m using the leftover cabbage, potatoes and kielbasa from Monday’s Kielbasa and Cabbage. The proportions to be used for the new soup will kind of depend on the amount of you leftovers, but I’m just […]
