“Only quitters have leftovers.”
Am I serious about curry chili? I wish I weren’t. It was a necessary accident.
This past week my husband has been home for meals. He is usually at work and I’m only obliged to pack a lunch for him, eating other meals by myself, scavenging and nibbling through the day.
With my glorious collection of frozen soups and sundries on hand I thought I’d have it made with feeding him this week. However, frozen portions seemed to be always just a bit too much for two. This resulted in dibs and dabs of this and that. Being the fearless eater in our house I appointed myself the dibs and dabs consumer.
Today for lunch I had leftover roast beef chili mixed with curry chicken and leftover rice. I think there was also some spaghetti squash thrown into the mix. It’s easy enough to place small amounts of leftovers into a jar for a few days, adding other bits as they occur, until a goodly amount is available. And then …
I even sprinkled some parsley onto the mixture for the picture. Trust me, it tastes a lot better than it looks (thank goodness) bordering on delicious.
I encourage you to try this dibs and dabs way of cleaning out the fridge. No, it won’t save the starving children. You’re going to have to get a bit more creative to do that.
