Chorizo And Leftover Cheeseburger Quesadilla

The Quesadilla night idea we had last week came after I was writing our dinner's menu in my kitchen chalkboard. Unless we're eating either pizza, spaghetti, tacos, or burgers, I always have to make something different for Emma. If this is your first time in this foodblog, my daughter has Autism and she's a bit of a picky eater. It's a texture thing. I get to be creative when it comes to her dinner combos. ...

Baked Ravioli With Leftover Meat Sauce & Ricotta Cheese

When I make spaghetti meat sauce for a spaghetti dinner I always end up with more sauce than the noodles. Throughout the years I've always been making too much spaghetti that gives us leftovers for 2-3 days worth of lunch. Fortunately, I have learned to save spaghetti sauce for other pasta dishes for future dinners. Sometimes I just ladle them into a jar then store that in the fridge to use a few days later. ...

Leftover Chicken, Salsa, & Green Onions Quesadilla

Besides fried rice, soup, or frittata, quesadilla is what I make to use up leftover meats. Just chopped up the meat, tomatoes, and green onions, then throw 'em on top of a flour tortilla, then bind everything together with shredded cheese on top, and another flour tortilla to finish it. In this quesadilla, I used the leftover southwestern chicken and salsa instead of fresh tomatoes. This is perfect for quick lunch or those weekend munchies ...

Tortang Talong W/ Leftover Lemon-Pork

So I finally made that Tortang Talong that I was craving for a month ago but was too lazy to make. Not only did I labor over making 1 tortang talong, I dressed it up too by adding cutup leftover lemon-pork. Here's the leftover lemon pork that I cutup in small pieces. Use whatever leftover meat you've got, slice 'em up then set aside. Since I'm only grilling 1 eggplant, I decided to just use the stove ...

Eggplant & Leftover Beef Stir-Fry

I had one eggplant left from the local produce vendor loot so I figured I'd cook it up before it goes bad. I really don't know why I saved that 1 eggplant when I made the pork, green beans, & eggplant curry stir-fry. I was actually craving for tortang talong which I haven't had in a looooong time that I can't even remember the last time I ate some. However, I felt a bit silly ...

Pizza “Bruschetta”

My 3 yr old daughter is currently on a phase where she’s only eating the toppings off of her pizza. She picks the pepperoni or sausages, mushrooms, olives, etc off and then she’s done. Last Friday we had take-out pizza which also provided us lunch the following day since we also has antipasto, wings and garlic bread with the pizza so it was inevitable we’ll have leftovers. There were only ...
