This is a cool little book that gives you ideas for lunches from leftovers. Ok, that sounds like a no-brainer....you just cook extra food or take what ever is left, right?
That's an obvious plan and one we practice quite a bit. But this book will assist with some other ideas for combining leftover meats and/or vegetables to make a completely different dish. There is a bit of humor in the book and I like that. The author talks about the packed lunches he made for his children and the questions and comments they had about his taking photos of their lunch. A different perspective.
What we did with a roasted chicken was make two different meals for lunches during the work week. Some of the leftover chicken was chunked and put into a gumbo. Now this is a hearty lunch for cold weather. Tastes good too :-)
Here is another dish. Behold a chicken and rice dish with extra broth to keep it moist. I added a wee bit of BBQ sauce to mine.
We have leftovers 98% of the time. Saves money and it's a healthier alternative to restaurant food.
What sort of lunches do you pack during the week?
