Use These Two Leftovers to Make a Quick Sunday Evening Meal

Print Post
Since I detest cooking on Sundays anymore than I necessarily have to, I try to utilize leftovers to create a new meal.

Here’s two simple ways to use leftover chicken and mashed potatoes and leftover taco meat.

After a supper of chicken and mashed potatoes, I spread my leftover mashed potatoes into a buttered casserole dish.  Toss on some cheese and take the leftover chicken off the bone to spread on top.  I cover this with foil and stick it on the bottom of my fridge to save for Sunday night.  It’s easy to slide into my toaster oven to bake for a quick Sunday Night meal.  (*Save the bones and toss them in the freezer to make some homemade chicken broth when you have enough bones collected and time to do so.)

On some Sunday lunches, I have a little leftover taco meat, but not enough for another meal of tacos, so I toss the taco meat into a crockpot bowl, (I usually have black beans also added to my taco meat.), next I peel a few potatoes and dice, toss in a can of Rotel on top, sprinkle in some seasoning salt, stir everything together and put this in my crockpot to cook all afternoon for a quick Sunday evening meal.

I know my mother uses leftover beef, potatoes and carrots that she cooked in her crockpot to create a “Beef Stew” for after church on Sunday evening.  My hubby doesn’t like stew, so we don’t do this meal, but I thought I would share that as well.

    Terra, I’m often the same way, I get stuck in a rut sometimes. I try to use the times when I’m feeling a little extra creative to try out something new…and sometimes it something that really works for us…and then I’m glad that I took a leap of faith. 🙂 But, I think for the most of us, we do want to use our leftovers…it’s just coming up with creative ways to do it.
