The Ultimate Fate Of Leftovers Depends On Your Imagination

I hate leftovers but you can make them interesting and create a whole new meal without reminding you why you had them to begin with. For me it’s because I am a party of one.

Pizza, Paella, Fried Rice and Casseroles are a clever way to use up leftovers. I also build them up in stir fries. I do love stir fries because they are so quick and easy to make.

I had a small piece of turkey meatloaf which I put on a little whole grain bun and dressed it with fried onions, a tiny piece of swiss cheese and cranberries.

Wow – this was so delicious I convinced myself that I did not have Turkey Meatloaf for dinner last night!

It was the little bit of cranberry that made a difference and I will be trying it in some other dishes this week as well.

You forget how good they are especially when you only have them once a year on Thanksgiving. Now why is that exactly?

Bon Appetit!
