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!

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

You could make a tomato salad and just add some onion and oil & vinegar with salt & pepper.

Quoting August07Mom:

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

That's what dh does!

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

Absolutely!
