Did You Know What to Do With Leftovers?

Did you know what to do with leftovers?

I try to serve leftovers or eat them for lunch. However sometimes there is such a small amount left that it really won't serve for a meal. If it is meat, I'll give it to the dog. But when it's fruits or vegetables, I usually end up throwing it away. I recently read a great idea for leftover veggies. Keep a baggie in the freezer into which you put the small portions of leftover veggies like carrots, green beans, corn, etc. When you get enough, put them into a soup! Perfect! As for the leftover fruits, I now do the same. Only when I get enough, I use them to make fruit smoothies.

My wife is a terrific cook and so leftovers here are wonderful. Often, I will warm up parts of several different dishes and have a smorgasbord!
