  “I don’t get it, you guys cook so much, but we never eat any leftovers.” That reason is two-fold. First, as I mentioned before, we freeze portions of most meals for Hubby to take on the road for lunches the following week (or weeks) ahead. Second – we eat the left overs alright – we just make new meals from them. That roast we had last Sunday, on Monday it was in the soup for dinner. Ironically enough, it’s what was on the stove when D.D came in and made her query.

The recipe on the back of the bag of lentils called for ham and celery – both of which we did not have. So we diced up the roast, and added carrots instead. I sliced up a small loaf of bread that was getting a little hard, buttered, seasoned, and toasted it on the oven. Voila, we had the perfect winter fare on the table in 30 minutes.

    I think leftovers always go over better when they are “re-done”! lol, sound like you all had a great meal. My family doesn’t like soup or stew… yet… he, he. I’m working on that!

    I have to say, I’m very fortunate with my kids in that regard,they’ve never balked at trying anything at the dinner table. They may threaten mutiny if it’s prepared again, but they’ll try it, lol.

  3. Love it! We dont have leftovers either.. we learned quickly to repurpose meals! The lentil soup sounds nuimmy!
