You would think that leftovers was a four letter word at my house. Once we have a meal, heaven must send little messages to my kids saying do not eat that again. Do not reheat. It amazes me that they will gush – yes, literally gush – over a dish but then not want to eat it again. I keep trying to tell them that most things – except I say all – taste better reheated.
So the other day – actually it was a week ago – I had some pork chops that had been in the freezer since a sale in the fall. No one wanted pork chops and however I was fixing them back then so I had frozen the remainder of the chops uncooked. I took these out to thaw and then went through the fridge. I had parsnips – bought for beef and beer stew a few weeks back, carrots – always on hand, cabbage – leftover from St Patrick’s Day and not yet cooked, celery – always on hand, spinach – always on hand. I decided then and there it was pork stir fry
with rice. I almost always – unless I have been lazy and not done my grocery shopping – have rice on hand. So off I went to get the new – yes, it was a Christmas gift from a good friend but I still call it new – frying pan. I love this pan!!! I didn’t quite julienne the veggies but did cut them up. And here is the stir fry that went on top of the rice.
