Lately: Leftovers!

Leftovers, leftovers, leftovers! You’d think that I’d be cooking up new recipes while I’m on break from school, but we’ve had so much food in the house, I can’t bring myself to make anything new until some of what’s already in the fridge gets eaten! I’ve tried to mix it up a bit by using the same ingredients in different ways, so that Ben and I don’t get sick of having the same thing over and over. Here’s what I’ve been eating lately:

Veggie Lo Mein Salad, w/ Steamed Veggies and Sesame Seeds- from leftover New Year’s Eve Chinese take-out!

Veg Lo Mein Salad

Chicken Taco Salad– from Taco Night!

Taco Salad

Smoked Turkey Guacamole Rollup– with leftover toppings from tacos! (Sooo good that this one deserves its own post!)


Favorite snack these days… PB, Banana & Raspberry Jam Minis, w/ jumbo raisins and orange slices on the side.

PBJ and banana bites

Open-Faced Tuna Broil- For some reason lately I’ve been all about our broiler. I’ve been using it to roast veggies, potatoes, and make open-faced sandwiches like this one! Don’t ask me why I think it’s more fun to turn on the whole oven and make way more work for myself than I need to, but there’s something about watching cheese bubble up and get all gooey that just makes my heart sing! I’ve been converted. I’ve also set off the smoke alarm on about six different occasions (one of which Ben did not even notice though he was sitting in the same room…).

This one is canned tuna fish mixed with dijon mustard, spicy brown mustard, a few drops of Worchestershire sauce, garlic powder and some ground mustard (no mayo- puhleaseeee!). I also mixed in some frozen peas to give a bit more substance. Topped with spinach, tomato, pickle, more dijon, and Swiss cheese.

Anyone else see the face in this photo? I wonder how much money I could make if I told everyone it was the face of the Virgin Mary on my tuna sandwich…
