I am notoriously terrible at eating leftovers. Seriously. It’s bad. I’ll eat them. But I don’t really want to. (Except for holiday leftovers – I eat those for sure!) But, I’ve learned something…if I just add one or two new ingredients and transform it just a bit I can trick my brain into eating something new.
After a run on the treadmill, I was hungry. Like really hungry. And I needed something quick!
You know what we had in the fridge? Eggs. And leftovers.
I threw a couple eggs in a pan with some olive oil, salt and pepper.
Then, I added some leftovers. (These were from a quick skillet dinner that Ryan made earlier in the week with chicken, brussels sprouts, carrots, golden raisins.)
The skillet was really good during the first meal (I had two helpings of it for dinner that night) but I really wanted something different.)
The finished product? It doesn’t look very pretty but the eggs, olive oil, and the hot pan transformed these leftovers into something new. And I ate all of it.
What do you do to be sure that you are using your leftovers?
