...and I've usually heard "or do without" added to the lines on this WW II poster.
Yesterday I applied this principle to my dinner preparation. At the urging of a friend while eating at the Peking Buffet on Tuesday, I tried some chicken in a peanut sauce. I KNEW I would like it--and I did! So yesterday, I wanted to give my husband a taste of it. I put chicken breast in my crock pot and then mixed some peanut butter with some ricotta cheese I had left from preparing a weekend dish. I put the mixture over the chicken breast and, because time was short, turned the heat to high. Four hours later, we enjoyed the meal with Asian cabbage slaw (a leftover). The slaw recipe is under the Recipe Tag at the top of my blog. We are not picky eaters, and using leftovers creatively is a great adventure for me. The crock pot is a HUGE help!
Do YOU have a favorite way to use leftovers?
