I made an herb and garlic pork roast with roasted potatoes, onions and carrots. We had this for 2 meals. I then took some of the leftover sliced pork and made chow mein with lots of veggies and the thinly sliced pork. This gave us another 2 complete meals.
Another night I oven roasted some beer brats and some homemade potato wedges. This was served with fresh cantaloupe. I had some leftover beer brats so I made a pasta dish with them and some veggies. Very easy and yummy! This gave use 2 different meals.
I'm trying to use up things in my pantry. I found a box of Suddenly Salad in the Ranch Flavor. I cooked that up and added some broccoli and precooked honey bourbon barbecued chicken to it along with some mayo and other seasonings. This was served with Italian bread with butter and melted parmesan cheese. The salad gave us a nice dinner and yielded enough leftovers for 3 more servings.
We were given some salmon. I wanted to make a nice dinner to serve out on our back screened in porch since the weather was so warm. I also had half of a red pepper left so I thought I would use that up. I baked the salmon, along with the red pepper and then served it with some wild rice mix that I got on sale combined with a coupon for under a dollar. I would love to say we had leftovers but it was so good that we finished it all off.
I would love to know what some of the meals you have been having are and how you stretch your budget and remake your leftovers into something scrumptious and new. I'm running out of ideas here. ;)
