The term ‘leftovers’ conjures up images of cold, limp, and gray masses found in the refrigerator. In some households last night’s supper is a thing of the past, never to be thought of again. The aversion to reheating food and consuming it in new and fun ways is foreign to me. I have fun experimenting with what a leftover can be turned into.
One of my favorite foods to turn into a new night’s dinner would be tacos (or burritos), burgers, and meatloaf. These foods offer so much variety to enter a new realm the next day. My leftovers usually find themselves atop a baked potato or a salad. Though I may have to heat it in the microwave, there is always room for more additions like cheese– that makes everything better, right?
Last night was a leftover night. We had potatoes topped with taco filling, sour cream and of course, cheese.
Baked potatoes are so easy to make, too. Just stab one with a fork a few times and pop it in the microwave for 8 minutes. I always like to flavor mine with garlic powder and butter and then add the toppings.
These cookies were better after refrigeration. I was actually afraid that they wouldn’t make it to the oven because I was eating the batter by the spoon. Luckily, I had the power to stop.
You should really try to make these cookies. Doug had a few co-workers try them and they thought they were great.
