Happy Wednesday everyone! Almost to the weekend- I can taste it! 🙂
After my sister’s party last weekend we had a ton of food/ingredients left over. So I planned our week around what was leftover and grabbing a few ingredients to supplement what we had. Have you ever watched that show Chopped on the Food Network? It was kind of like that, here is your basket of ingredients, let’s go!
Turkey and left over Pear/Apple/Onion from our crostini with leftover brie and leftover arugula Panini’s. There was 5 leftover stuffed dates so we each got one!
Do you have a panini press? It’s definitely a favorite kitchen tool of mine!
Breakfast for dinner! Leftover crumbled sausage and leftover gorgonzola scrambled in eggs with a potato hash and some roasted veggies on the side.
Greek Salad Pizzas from Skinnytaste (we added chicken because we had a package that needed to be cooked) with leftover tomato and then I bought the other veggies and feta to supplement.
We had a ton of onions and a package of mushrooms that needed to be used so I cooked it up with some spinach a can of tomatoes and ground turkey and some parmesan cheese and cooked some quinoa on the side.
Literally this was like chopped. We had pizza dough left over from the party, we had dips and cheeses and random stuff so these are the two pizzas that came out so awesome. On the left: BBQ sauce on the bottom sprinkled with gorgonzola cheese and mozzarella, one half had scallions and the other half had chicken (for those who eat meat on Fridays and those who don’t 🙂 ). On the right: a leftover feta/red pepper dip that someone brought to the party on the bottom, feta, a diced tomato, pear and one half with chicken. HOLY goodness. So random and soooo good!
“Toad in a Hole” and British dish. We had sausage that needed to be cooked. Basically it’s sausage cooked in Yorkshire pudding served over an onion sauce. So good! My dad made this one.
Chicken Marsala using chicken from the freezer and Brussels sprouts from the freezer.
For dessert, chocolate crumb cake muffins with white and chocolate chips.
I truly believe it is a sin to waste food. There are many hungry and unfortunate people in our world and in our towns and cities. Use what you have, be creative and don’t let it go to waste!
Stay tuned for next week. We are doing a “clean out the freezer” week of meals!
