I don’t know about you, but my fridge has the ability to go from nicely organized to overwhelmingly crammed faster than you can say:
“What the h#%% was this?!”
So tonight I set a goal to use up as many containers of leftovers as possible. I prepared a meal whose only redeeming quality was it had many, many different ingredients. Actually, it was kind of three different meals, as I needed to appease the various different palates of my family members. (Normally I refuse to make different meals to cater to picky eaters, but tonight it was actually helpful to have to serve a couple different mini-meals.)
The main dish was a frittata, but I also cooked up a scrambled egg/sausage/cheese dish for my older son and the last of some grilled chicken over rice for my younger egg-averse younger son.
In all, I used up:
- 2 sausages
- A container of vermicelli noodles leftover from last night’s spring rolls
- A small amount of leftover salmon steak.
- Leftover shrimp.
- Leftover grilled chicken.
- Eggs (We somehow had two almost-full containers)
- Leftover rice.
- Last of an avocado.
- 2 red peppers that started to go soft immediately after I bought them. (I cut off the mushy bits to compost.)
