Here is the list of items I started out with in my freezer/refrigerator/pantry.
Tonight, I took inspiration from a usual source: frugality blog The Simple Dollar, specifically this article titled Nine Creative Ways to Utilize Leftovers from Common Meals.
Since we had pot roast last night, naturally we had some leftover meat, broth, and some vegetables. Trent suggests the following:
"Instead of just reheating this food for future meals, I just toss it into the food processor with some of the broth, puree it, and then take the thick “soup” and add bread crumbs until I’m able to form patties with it. I then cook the patties over medium heat in a skillet with a bit of canola oil until they’re light brown on both sides. Optionally, I’ll add a bit of cheese to the mix."
I also decided this would be good as sandwiches. I have some bread left, but not alot, and since I'm out of white flour, I decided to make rye bread according to this recipe.
Here's the rye bread:
And, while somewhat unattractive, this pot roast burger is quite edible. Even a bit yummy.
