leftovers week

Terry and I both enjoy cooking, as you well know, and many of the dishes we cook don’t foodsavernecessarily reduce to two servings very easily. That means leftovers. Those leftovers get sealed up with our FoodSaver and put in the freezer. The problem is that when you have leftovers in the freezer you really need to use them. Sometimes we forget to do that.

That’s why we declared last week to be leftovers week. We agreed that it was time to draw down our inventory. It worked out well. Here’s what we had:

  • Monday: enchiladas
  • Tuesday: lasagna
  • Wednesday: gumbo
  • Thursday: pulled pork
  • Friday: falafel

We’re continuing that plan this week in the days before Thanksgiving. (Yes, we had a lot stored up!)

Perhaps in the future we can create some balance and intersperse leftovers in between freshly cooked meals. That would be a Good Thing.
