Do Something with Your Leftovers!

Today's assignment, should you choose to accept it, is this:

Pick out a shelf in your fridge.
Take out any leftovers on that shelf.
Check for the following qualities:
1)Pleasant smell
2)Lack of growing/green stuff
3)Identifiable

Should the leftovers in question meet these criteria, your next step will be to either
a)plan a meal around them within the next 2 days
or
b)get them into the freezer for future use. And don't forget to label them!

I just put some sushi rice and some cooked beef in gravy in the freezer. Not sure what will become of the rice, but I made a note on the beef that I could add spices, shred it, and put it in tortillas.
I'm going to finish off some soup broth for lunch today by adding some noodles, which James and Nick will eat.
For me, leftover peanut butter spaghetti, roasted cherry tomatoes and maybe broccoli salad. At the very least, it's our vegetable tonight!

What are you waiting for? Go rescue some leftovers before they turn into science projects!

Uh-Oh, I found science projects. Now I've got to find actual leftovers!
You're welcome, by the way, I love your blog, and thank you for visiting mine too!

Your criteria really make me laugh! (Especially because we just had a little incident in my house revolving around a rather green-and-white lemon....)

It's a netspeaky way of saying "K, thanks, Bye". ;)

And I always laugh when I get word verifications that are almost words!!

Sheesh! Even my freshly made meals don't meet your criteria! They usually don't smell all that great and very seldom are they identifiable.....I'm lucky to have such an adventurous family! LOL!
