Iâ€™ve had fun with several food blogging events, including a risotto challenge and Wine Blogging Wednesdays.Â So I decided to create a new event called Leftover Tuesdays, dedicated to trying to make leftovers something to celebrate.Â Hosted on my blog Cooking Chat with a related group here on Gather, the first LOT event drew entries from 10 countries and 5 continents.Â
Two fellow Gatherers joined me in posting creative use of leftovers Leftover Tuesdays group by the first deadline.Â If I missed something intended for this event, let me know and Iâ€™ll update the post (but poems and recipes from scratch are not what weâ€™re seeking on this group!).Â
Ted cooked up Chicken Hodgepodge Soup, serendipitously making the most of an uneaten roast chicken and vegetables.
Faith made a Tomato Chicken Curry with leftover roasted chicken and vegetables, which she put to use with a vareity of Indian spices. Looks very tasty!Â
My creation for the first LOT was Red Curry Chicken. This was a fast way to transform my savory roast chicken into something with some spice for the next night. This roast chicken will still be contributing to our table, as I also made some chicken veggie stock that awaits in the freezer.Â
These recipes are a good start, but you should visit the full roundup on Cooking Chat for some real leftover inspiration.Â People used leftover bread, chicken, pasta, meat and more to make some fabulous creations, as quick glimpse at all the photos will tell you.Â Creations highlighted there include Yambalaya, Chicken and Mango Quesa-dilluhs, and Ricotta Pancakes with Blueberries.Â Â
I think Iâ€™m starting to like leftovers more already!
