Food · Just my Thoughts


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.

  1. My kids will eat some things left over, but not all. I am terrible at making sure leftovers get used before going bad. I eat them for lunch once and then forget about them. My husband swears he’ll eat something if I save it, but never does.

    Odd thing about my kids- they LOVE stir fry, it is their favorite meal.
