Leftover Dinner For Lunch

Hi everyone. This is what I had for last night's dinner and as leftovers for today's lunch. With dinner last night, I had a side salad with light Ranch dressing. For lunch, I had a Greek yogurt. Everything was really good and all the flavors mixed together very nicely overnight.

The tortillas are made with corn and the cheese used was 6 blend Mexican-style. Really good. :-)

What did you have for lunch and/or dinner? :-)

That really sounds good! I love eating avocadoes with salad and other food. We're getting some avocadoes in a few days from now. An omelet sounds like a great idea. My mom and I were talking about having them in a few days, but we have to see if we have everything we need for them. :-)

It's 4:35 pm here right now, but will have to check to see what's for dinner tonight at 5 pm so we can eat at 5:30. No worries. You can always reply anytime you're ready and free. I pick up replies after dinner usually if I have my phone nearby. :-)

Have a good night and talk tomorrow. :-)

Marmite on toast with crushed avocado is very healthy for a snack. My gt niece has hers with poached egg on top.

Hiya,

My dinner today was a bit disappointing because I'd cooked a spare jacket potato for my dinner tonight yesterday and my daughter and husband had it with their Sunday lunch without my knowledge. So, I only had a feta and cheddar cheese salad for dinner. To compensate I ate the very last slice of Parkin with double cream, yum!

That reminds me of what my dad sometimes does around here. If he doesn't want something we're having, he has either oatmeal or some other type of cereal and tea on the side. My mom and I have whatever was planned and we sometimes get to share the leftovers for the next day or one of us has the leftovers and the other eats something different. :-)

I did a Sunday roast but I'm not a big meat eater and don't like Gammon at all so, I make something different me. I had a jacket spud with butter and cheese and cooked an extra one for my dinner today knowing that I would be making a meaty meal for tonight's dinner. I made a sausage casserole with high meat content pork (97% meat) but I don't like pork hence the ready cooked spud.

Do you eat "fake" meats? :-)

ThyroidThora in reply to Activity2004

No, not really unless I make something with Quorn. I will make a spag bolognaise for the whole family from time to time.

What lovely flavours Leah, I bet you did enjoy that. I had a low fodmap curry and carrot soup which was lovely. I seem to make a lot of soups now.😋🌈👍

The curry and carrot soup sounds really good! Do you have any leftovers? :-)

in reply to Activity2004

Thank you Leah. I don't think I've got anymore in the freezer, I'll have to make more😉😋👍

That's great! I'd love to see how it looks if you take a picture for everyone to see. :-)

If course, I'll do that when I make more 👍🌈😊

Hi Leah,

Your meal looks very nice. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

I had smoked haddock and poached egg on wholemeal toast for lunch, and a spinach pasta bake made with slow-cooked Thai-style chicken curry and cheddar cheese for my evening meal, which was very tasty.

Hope you enjoy the remainder of your day.

Your lunch and dinner sound really good! One of my favorite types of food is Thai and chicken meals. There's a chicken, carrot and potato stew-like meal that my mom does sometimes for the holidays and it's really good, too. She adds some stewed tomatoes so their juice gets on everything when in the pot cooking. It's really good for cold weather nights. :-)

Hi Leah,

Your Mum's stew sounds really tasty. I also used tomatoes in my Thai-style chicken curry - I used a tin of tomatoes in their juice, and it definitely enhanced the flavour, as well as providing lycopene - so healthy!

That’s right! We use tomatoes from a can, too for more flavor!😀👍🌈

Home made Chilli con carne with wholewheat rice for us, nice and warming 👍

That sounds fantastic to me! I was thinking of a sandwich if we didn't have the leftovers from last night, but we didn't have all the items that I was going to use (tuna and some lettuce). :-)

Chcken casserole. And that was leftover from Sunday lunch. Deliberately did enough for two days, as I also do with with stews, as they always taste better on the second day. Even did it with cottage pie last week . Being innovative during lockdown and cutting down on the work.See nowt wrong with that!

You're right! There's nothing wrong with making extra food for leftovers and meals. I enjoy having leftovers. :-)

As I have cooked a lot recently and it is nearly Xmas my husband said I have to eat to empty the freezer. So I do not have to cook for at least 2 weeks.

Well, this sounds like a plan to me! We plan to go to my brother's (hopefully) for Thanksgiving and get leftovers from him like a few years ago. He always does this for us-- especially with the gluten free items so I can have leftovers for a few days afterwards here at the house. :-)
