I wrote up a menu sheet for meals we have ingredients for. It will cover at least 2 weeks and meals are listed in no particular order.
I will cross off each main meal as we eat it.
I did a little food prep for the week ahead
From left to right
Fresh strawberries in red Jello
1 Chopped red onion
A sweet potato and white potato to roast with supper tonight
4 diced yellow onions
5 peeled oranges
2 pounds of peeled and sliced carrots (sliced by the Presto Salad Shooter)
My son said he learned this method on Instagram and they have been using their leftovers to make yummy panini sandwiches.
You start with a large tortilla like the kind for sandwich wraps, and cut one slash in it just to the center
Then add whatever leftovers or fillings in each fourth
Now fold each quarter in until it’s folded into a quarter
Then heat it in a Panini machine (I’m sure a griddle or skillet would work too, you’d just need to flip it to cook both sides)
You end up with a fancy restaurant type sandwich.
I think these are a wonderful idea- and a thrifty way to use up leftovers, even tiny amounts. And if your fixing multiple sandwiches, it would be easy to make them different to please each eater.
Hope you’re all having a good weekend
