I’m currently working on another post but I thought I’d put this out in the meantime. I know I can’t be the only one who is not fond of leftovers. In fact, I hate eating leftovers. I wish I could only make exact amounts but that’s hilarious right? As much as I hate them eating leftovers is a must in my house. my greatest grocery budget savers is finding inventive ways to use leftovers. Many times I will make one meal and make a completely new meal using the leftovers. I’m going to share my secrets with you here!
Chicken: whether it’s a rotisserie or a bunch of breasts that you cook.
Meal one: chicken with veg and potatoes
Meal two: chicken and rice soup
Meal three: chicken quesadillas
You may not have enough chicken for all three but they are just ideas.
Steak: you cook a couple steaks on the grill.
Meal one: steaks, veg, pasta salad
Meal two: steak fajitas
Meal three: steak salad/steak wrap
This one we use frequently.
Chili: I tend to make big batches of chili. I really have no idea who I plan to feed with all this chili.
Meal one: chili with all the fixings
Meal two: chili cornbread casserole
Meal three: chili cheese potatoes
French bread/hamburger buns: we always use these but never finish them off.
Meal one: pasta and bread
Meal two: hamburgers and chips
Meal three: french bread/ hamburger bun pizzas
Left over veggies or unneeded veggies:
Meal one: stir-fry
Meal two: veggie soup
Meal 3: omelets
Those are the major leftovers we use to make new meals. I hope these ideas inspire you to use your leftovers in new and creative ways and help you keep your grocery budget low. please let me know the ways you use your leftovers!!
