Making the Most of Leftovers!
I made the most of the leftovers on the standing rib roast dinner. Since it's an expensive cut of meat, but we were able to get it on sale at $5.47 a pound, we had two dinners with it. Here we go - leftovers! AND, the yorkies were so damned good that I made another batch.
Brilliant, when I'm trying to lose a few pounds...still........good.
For a veggie side I chopped mushrooms and yellow squash, sauteed in an olive oil creation I had experimented with and it was pretty good.
I like the oil soaked sun dried tomatoes and when I was done with a jar, there was a bit of the oil left. I chopped garlic and added a tablespoon extra virgin olive oil...put it in the fridge. This is what I used to saute the squash and mushrooms.
Finally, the few little yorkies leftover were consumed for breakfast. Strong black coffee, a cold Yorkshire pudding split with marmalade (strawberry jam for Doug) and I was good to go.
In tight economical times you gotta use it all up any way you can.
Just checked dout Van's blog and there is a good post on Bison Stew here. I'm nor sure if we have bison availble in my neck of woods but this recipe sounds great.
