sometimes I prefer the left overs


I made a delicious roast with potatoes for dinner on Sunday and while it was good in it's own right, it was nothing compared to what I made with the leftovers.

Taking the left over beef chopping it finely, adding the chunked up potatoes and frying them up into tacos then topping them with fresh tomatoes, lettuce and shredded cheese is one of my favorite weeknight meals. Add some homemade salsa...perfection.

Sometimes even while I'm planning a meal I am already looking ahead to the leftovers.  I feel the same way about pork chops or pork roast.  So many possibilities.  BBQ pork sandwiches or Chile Verde.  Maybe even fried pork burritos.

What are your favorite meals from leftovers?  Love to add them to my list...

  1. When grilling any meat for dinner we also toss an extra one {or two} on the grill - destined to be in a great salad the next night.

  2. Hmmm.. I've never heard of adding potatoes to tacos. Looks tasty though .

    I guess my favorite leftover would have to be rotisserie chicken. From making chicken noodle soup, or enchiladas, or a simple chicken and Swiss Panini sandwich, around here chicken leftovers are the best kind of leftovers :)

  3. Oh yum. Sounds so good to me. I have done that before also...plan two meals with the one I am cooking at the time. Can't waste good food. LOL. Blessings, xoxo,Susie
