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?


Did you miss yesterday's challenge? Here it is!

My husband cooked tons of food on the grill yesterday so that we would have leftovers!  We love food off the grill.  I don't necessarily make it into something else, we just warm it up!

We normally take leftovers to work with us for lunch. So there aren't any to do anything different.

This is us too.  I sah but DH takes them to work and I will use them for my lunches at home a lot.

We normally don't have many leftovers, but if we do, we usually eat them for our lunches.

Same here. DH usually takes whatever we have left for lunch the next day.

I do this too. It saves soo much money to bring a lunch instead of eating out. Healthier too!
