  • Sometimes I make pizzas on pita bread or english muffins, I have an easy quiche recipe that I like to serve with soup, Quesadillas with Taco Soup. Often I plan ahead and make something like sloppy joes, or chili on Friday or Saturday night, and make enough for leftovers for lunch the next day. Stuffed baked potatoes with broccoli, chicken and cheese on top. Or I'll do a "leftover buffet" to use up dinner leftovers from earlier in the week. Very often dinner leftovers make great sandwiches in the sandwich maker. Such as chicken divan sandwiches, roast leftovers, even spaghetti sandwiches believe it or not!!! Think outside the box and you'll come up with lots of ideas.

  • oh i love to cook bowtie pasta, then i drain off most of the water, leaving enough to make a thick sauce, and then i add a packet of that lipton dry noodle soup mix and simmer for about 5 minutes. you can always add water if needed. it just makes a nice lunch, served with toasted french bread w/ butter. yummy!
