(This picture has nothing to do with this post, but shows how much Penny and Jeff love each other.)
We love lunch.
I really like preparing lunch because I love repurposing leftovers and not letting food go to waste. Feel so good to use everything up!
I usually do this in one of 3 ways:
- eat leftovers as-is (just heat up whatever dinner was leftover in the microwave)
- make an egg scramble (toss leftovers into egg and cook it up to eat with rice)
- toss it into a salad!
For example, last night we had chicken skewers and green bean and potato salad. The leftovers are going into a salad today with some other goodies (like garbanzo beans and fritos!), tossed with this honey mustard dressing and lunch is done!
Shame on me, I even serve this kind of leftovers-redone meal to friends (sorry Aileen!)
I still use the dressings I posted here, but have grown accustomed to making this one (instead of the honey mustard one from before) because it's SO EASY. 3 ingredients!!!
(from Alton Brown)
5 T. honey
3 T. dijon mustard
2 T. rice vinegar
Shake it up in a jar and toss with salad. We like it on salads that have kidney beans, garbanzo beans, fritos, romaine, spinach, tomatoes, carrots, avocados... whatever's leftover from last night's dinner...
