leftovers are always the best!

I love leftovers!
oven fishcakes-
mashed potato mixed with a can of tuna,
chopped spring onions and celery, grated carrot and cheese,
beaten egg, parsley and seasoning.
I top these with grated parmesan and bake
on the highest shelf of the Rayburn for 20 minutes

Chicken Soup like my mum made it. . .

celery carrot onion, peppercorns, bayleaf, pearl barley
and the weekend's roast chicken carcass brought to the boil
and simmered for a couple of hours.

I save "soup water" water from boiled parsnips, carrots and spuds
or you could use stock or Marigold powder.

Remove the chicken bones and add
fine noodles or rice noodles to serve
(we always had Kneidlach which are
boiled dumplings made from matzo meal)

Well that's lunch and tea sorted-
what's your favourite leftovers meal?

The fishcakes sound good! My favourite leftover meal is 'Christmas Pie' made by the Mr. Leftover turkey, cranberry, gravy, stuffing and veg stuffed into a pastry case! M x

I do agree - and using leftovers makes me feel so smug too. Trouble is, I sometimes find myself buying new ingredients just so I can use up those little bits & pieces.
