Weekday Leftovers

"The most remarkable thing about my mother is that for thirty years she served the family nothing but leftovers.  The original meal has never been found."  -Calvin Trillin



I  have previously worried about what to eat on weeknights for dinner. One easy, quick dinner was English muffin pizzas.  That week, we had two dinners made from the English muffins, and actually three meals made from the cheap pizza toppings from Hannaford. This week we ate dinner one night at El Mariachi. We both had fajitas. The next night I made corn tortillas, and Scott cooked up some flank steak and beans to have with the leftovers. Then I finished off those tacos for lunch today. If you are a really smart person you can figure out how to use up everything in your fridge – or better yet plan it all out in advance. It can be harder than it seems, but can really pay off in the end.
