|Cooking was more fun when it was plastic |
and no one expected it to be edible.
Take any one of those leftover dips you made for guests (chipotle crab, North African, or hummus) and toss it with some pasta and a little of the pasta water to help it mix. Add leftover veggies like green beans, peas, or broccoli.
Remember that Turkish green beans recipe? It's a snap (even faster when the vegetable is already cooked), and it can be adapted to any green veggies. Serve over rice. Toss in some slivered almonds if you want.
One word: Coddle. Just use whatever meat (and leftover mashed 'taters) you have and throw in some freshly cooked bacon.
Add bacon to everything. It'll be fine, and no one will complain.
