This isn’t a nice recipe or anything, but I was just super impressed with my own economical dinner skills tonight and thought I’d share.
I got home late from a meeting, the BF is still out, and I was starving. I was doing my typical stand-in-front-of-the-open-fridge-and-hope-something-tasty-magically-appears. And in my head, I heard my dad yelling, “Shut the door!” (Everyone’s dad yells that, right?) But then something magically did appear: an idea. (Oh so cheesy, I know. Apologies.)
From the top shelf: Leftover bhindi (okra) masala from going out to Tandoor Indian last night (Yum!). The BF already ate the chicken tikka masala, so there wasn’t enough left for a meal.
From the way back of the middle shelf: Leftover brown rice from last weekend’s salmon lunch.
From the bottom shelf: Leftover baked chicken a friend sent home with the BF when I couldn’t make it to dinner this weekend.
From the drawer: Leftover asparagus spears, also from the salmon lunch.
Each on its own, certainly not enough for a meal. But together – perfect! I just finished, and it was delicious, easy, and free. Yay for no waste!
And for dessert… coconut chocolate chip oatmeal cookies leftover from a visit to a friend this weekend!
