Savor Summer Day 14: Use Leftovers!

Posted by   + Show Post

Does your family eat a lot of leftovers? Do you ever use extra food to create new meals? Here are a few ideas on how to use leftovers from the Fourth of July!

  • Use extra fruit salad with yogurt for breakfast.
  • Use leftover hamburger meat to make casseroles. 
  • Take extra cut veggies and add them to a pasta salad or as a topping on homemade pizza.
  • Chop leftover chicken up to make chicken salad.



Do you have any plans to make something with leftovers?

I eat lots of leftovers, but I rarely turn them into other dishes.  I usually just eat them as they were the night I fixed them.

Quesadillas are good with leftover chicken, too.

I hear people talk about them often...what is a tomato sandwich? Cuz to me tomatoes are something extra on a sandwich. Lol!

Quoting carolina_gal:

 Oh, we had leftover tomatoes from the burgers. I'm having tomato sandwiches with them.

Often times we just eat them. Sometimes I'll make something new if the leftovers lend themselves to something obvious.
