Crazy busy week - just got around to post our Monday #thebachelor 🌹spread. Anyone else think Colton is a little dull? (Well at least he is easy to look at 😂) food wise, we transformed the #leftoverguacamole into #chickensalad with #rotisseriechicken #celery and more garlic! Also made #pizzasticks with (you guessed it - #leftoverpizza 🍕🍕)!! Plus a random creation of #friedtofu #hotdog combo 😅 #theleftoverqueen #leftoverparty #appsanddrinks #zerofoodwaste #foodmakeover
Sunday funday recap ☀️ started with a #heartybreakfast 🍳🍳, followed by a whole lotta football 🏈 + #homemadeguac 🥑🥑 by 👨🏻, ended with a homemade #chinesemeal with steamed #yellowcrocker , #friedtofu with minced #meatlessmeatballs & #blackbeans , three greens & #leftoverchicken #stirfries and #stickyrice steamed in #lotusleaf (didn’t make that one from scratch 😅) #happysunday #theleftoverqueen #weekenddiet #eastmeetswest #cocktailsandappetizers 🍸🍸#wineandchinese 🍷🍷
There we go! First time yurt-ers. Dinner turned out well (although I forgot the brussel sprouts 😅) and the #redpepper eggplant garlic spread was perfect on the chicken thighs (stored bought and reheated it on the grill with the spread). Not pictured: s’mores with twix 🔥and breakfast this am. Yes it’s #leftoverpizza 🍕on the #woodburning stove - turned out perfectly! #theleftoverqueen #yurting #wintercamping #semihomemade #smores
Anyone else love packing food for camping (well, yurting for us) as much as I do? 👨🏻 surprised me with a yurt this weekend! Will be doing some cross country ⛷, back country 🏂, & lots of eating, of course 😁 #yurting #theleftoverqueen #cookingoutdoors #weekenddiet #menuplanning #foodnerds

Weekend appz & 🍸🍸- used the #leftovers #blackeyedpeas and made #beandip + #yakitori #chickengizzards + #homemademeatballs in #stickysauce + the always perfect #homemadewings (key is to dried wings throughly, toss in 2 tbsp #bakingpowder , salt, pepper & #paprika . Bake in 250f for 30 mins and 425 for another 45-50 mins) #theleftoverqueen #appetizersfordinner #randomfood #nofoodwaste
Saw the chicken gizzards next to the wings at the store - decided to try it out! Simmered it with #gingerandgarlic for ~20 mins, then fried it in more #gingerandgarlic , soy sauce, water, #sesameoil , #redpepperflakes for another 20-30 mins. Perfect #yakitori with some🍸 & 🏈 #theleftoverqueen #chickengizzards #drinkingsnacks #teriyaki
Love my new #kitchentoy 💛 homemade refried beans slow cooked in #leftover turkey stock - much less sodium than the #storebought ones.
