Our microwave has been on strike as of late, so reheating food has become more time consuming. And it involves pots and pans. For the first few weeks, I was quite irritated about the whole matter.
Rethinking leftovers may be part of the solution. Yesterday an acquaintance told me that a good many leftovers (pasta, vegetables, meat…) can serve as filling for egg rolls. I’d never thought of that before, but it sounds like it’s worth a try. My latest experiment with leftovers was pizza burgers of sorts: toasted bread topped with yesterday’s spaghetti sauce and a bit of cheese, broiled until bubbly. My son and I both found it to be a satisfying lunch.
What’s one of your favorite re-purposed leftover meals?
