The business of leftovers….
We eat leftovers and we love them. I had a friend once mention, “We don’t eat leftovers.” I was very surprised by this statement. To me, throwing away the leftovers from dinner the night before=no lunch tomorrow. We were at a restaurant and she and her husband had a lot of food left on their plate. We had requested a take away bag. I asked if she wanted one and that is when she made the comment. I thought she was just talking about never taking home leftovers from a restaurant and she said it was all leftovers. She didn’t like them. That is a such a waste of good food.
Speaking of food, here are some meals I cooked over the past few days since my last post. And they were definitely leftovers. 😀
Last night I made our Baja “fish” taco recipe. We love this recipe. This was our anniversary dinner. We have been married 9 years, together 10. I served the tacos with seasoned pintos, cumin rice, and coconut lime cupcakes for dessert. It was great.
This meal was simple and very tasty. I made garlicky white beans and swiss chard. I served it over homemade baked polenta cakes. It was so good.
Thursday I made a curried type chickpeas and potatoes. We ate them with a side of spicy coconut carrots and peas. The boys loved this dish.
Earlier in the week I made this dish. It was a quinoa bake with a broccoli salad. The dish was great. I especially liked the salad. I made a garlic tahini dressing for it. The recipe made a ton.
This is another favorite around here. You can’t go wrong with burgers and fries. I made our black bean burger recipe, made some homemade buns earlier in the day and I served the burgers with oven roasted, seasoned fries. Yum!
This meal was so very good and so very simple and cheap. I call it a “peasant’s meal”. It was beans rice, salsa, greens, corn, and cheezy sauce. Our local food co-op makes a similar named dish. Their’s has beans, rice, and salsa.
Well, I am off to relax a bit before bedtime. Tomorrow is Monday and some crazy weather is headed our way, according to the weather man. Hope you had a pleasant weekend.
peas and love…..
