My longtime dream has come true: this little blog got a shout-out in a real, live newspaper. I was interviewed by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel for a story on leftovers, which you can read here.
New readers, start with this post for my wit and wisdom on leftovers. Got a favorite leftover recipe? Share it in the comments.
Here are some more ideas on using up leftover food:
Milk: Make homemade cottage cheese (aka farmer's cheese, curd cheese or tvorog).
Cottage cheese: Bake muffins.
Cooked, cold chicken: Make chicken-stuffed crepes or chicken and spinach hachepouri.
Raw chicken, random vegetables: Make stock.
Tomatoes past their prime: Roast 'em.
Roasted tomatoes, canned tomatoes, or tomato paste: Make chana masala soup.
Cooked vegetables: Make salad.
