What do I do with all these leftovers??
I can’t tell you how many times, I have seen an awesome recipe somewhere, gotten all excited to make it, and then realized I actually don’t have a family of 5 to feed (even though Rusty and I can eat a lot). Because I have never been a big fan of leftovers, this has always left me in a bit of a conundrum. Do I make the recipe and deal with leftovers? Do I make half the recipe and deal with half filled cans, halves of vegetables, etc.? Or do I just forget about it and make the same old thing we always eat?
The answer? Learn to love leftovers. Not by force, necessarily, but by recreation and creativity!
This week for instance, Rusty and I made a big batch of tortillas using THIS recipe from my blog. We both knew that we shouldn’t finish the whole batch of tortillas because they are just a vessel to hold the delicious cauliflower rice and ground bison, so we decided to put a third of them away for the next day.
With a little creativity the next morning, we came up with breakfast tacos, taking the prior night’s meal, and using it in a totally new way, filled with eggs, bacon, and raw cheddar cheese. No more boring leftovers! They were delicious.
So next time you have a huge batch of cauliflower rice, a big batch of tortillas, too many zucchini noodles, roasted sweet potatoes, or cooked broccoli to put down in one night, don’t fret, just put some away for tomorrow, and see how those creative juices put it to use!
In fact, I have made a point of making EXTRA now because it know it will save time and energy in the coming days to already have things cooked up and ready to be repurposed.
Not a believer yet? Try out this tortilla recipe, and just think of all the ways you can use it… tacos, deli meat wrap, breakfast burrito, almond butter and honey wrap… the list goes on!
