Sometimes you just need a little inspiration when faced with leftover root veggies; here are some ideas that will have you hoping for leftovers.
Start to think about how any leftovers might be transformed into something marvelous. As a building block for recipes that rely on an already cooked ingredient; as a shortcut. All you need is an inspiration & maybe a recipe.
There’s nothing like a little Mexican food when you’re just absolutely over Christmas & Christmas leftovers & New Years and New Years leftovers. And then there were the leftovers from the leftovers. So change it up and make enchiladas!
Happy New Year’s ya’all! And I’m saying that because I’m in Georgia (whoo-hoo) visiting my daughter and family. Unfortunately, I may have bought some Minnesota cold with me, though friends back home say there’s still plenty there to go around! It was minus 17 last night in the Twin Cities, with snow on the ground.
Here’s a Pasta Salad that’s fantastic for a party or gathering anytime of year. This isn’t any plain ol’ boring Pasta Salad, though. This one has it all! Lots of stuff. Lots of cheese. Lots of flavor and the best dressing you’ve ever tasted.
Here are some of my favorite dips & spreads that would be great for a New Year’s Eve party or New Year’s day get together. Or great just anytime! You’ll find all these recipes, and many more, on my Appetizer, Starters & Munchies page.
So hey, here I am a Minnesota blogger and I have no Wild Rice Soup on my blog. Uff da. Well I do have a Wild Rice and Smoked Turkey Chowder (amazingly good and healthy!) but it’s just not the same as a Classic Wild Rice Soup, now is it? (As a quick aside, I will be posting recipes that aren’t Instant Pot and aren’t soup, it’s just been a crazy Holiday week, so if you don’t have an “IP” please bear with me!)
Do you need a fun, fresh take on a dish for your Holiday Ham leftovers? Something easy, fast and crave-worthy? You’re gonna want to try this Hawaiian Fried Rice. And you’re gonna look like a genius when you bring this to the table! 🙂
